October 2018 update to the four-year technology roadmap

The October 2018 update (revision 63) to the four-year University-wide technology roadmap is available to University constituents as a PDF document on Penn+Box at:

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 twelfth update to the roadmap that was initially released three years ago has 22 of the 173 existing technologies modified in some way. Three technologies are newly tracked—Cost Allocation/Reallocation Project (CARP), Windows 10 October 2018 Update, and Safari 12. One technology has been removed; High Speed Data Transfer. 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 30) who have assisted in compiling this thirteenth release of the roadmap.
