October 2017 update to the four-year technology roadmap

The October 2017 update (revision 56) to the four-year University-wide technology roadmap is available to University constituents as a PDF document on Penn+Box at:

https://upenn.box.com/v/techroadmaps

The primary goal of this technology roadmap is to help Penn’s technology professionals make contextual decisions within the overall University technology environment. It is intended for internal use - please do not forward it to non-Penn individuals.

This eighth update to the roadmap that was initially released two years ago has 37 of the 180 existing technologies modified in some way. One technology is newly tracked—External Authentication. All modified technologies are delineated by an orange box to the right of their name and described in the change log on the final page of the roadmap.

This roadmap represents a best current estimate of the status of these technologies. It will often revise over time and is completely re-evaluated every quarter. My thanks go to the many individuals across the University (about 25) who have assisted in compiling this ninth release of the roadmap.
