Whether a campus is centralized or decentralized, delivering personalized information to users in a secure, cohesive location is not easy. Developers must thoroughly understand interfaces to existing systems as well as varied, competing user needs. Universities are expected to do more with fewer resources, and upgrading archaic systems is simply unrealistic. The team must balance technological constraints with user expectations, holding user experience tantamount.
