Aggiefeed is a campus activity stream that displays information and events submitted by approved campus departments and organizations. It provides date-driven content in real time, such as events and activities, WarnMe alerts, and SmartSite notifications as well as Quick Polls and online course evaluations. Aggiefeed provides content pertinent to students, faculty, and staff, and messages can be targeted directly to specific groups and individuals or made public for anyone to read.

DocuSign Pilot

DocuSign is a “software as a service” tool that has been identified to automate electronic routing, signature and storage of documents.

This pilot project includes a one-year campus wide license for DocuSign, to demonstrate the value of this tool for campus in automating a number of business processes requiring signatures.  Based on the first year outcomes, if value is demonstrated, a proposal will be developed to fund ongoing licensing and support of the tool as a campus wide service.

Event Management System (EMS)

Event Management System (EMS) is a commercial suite of software applications for managing events (i.e., room reservations, service activities, resources, calendaring, signage, etc.). 


GitHub is a service provided under the auspices of the Administrative Application Development Initiative (AADI) and supported by the College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences, Development & Alumni Relations, and the Division of Social Sciences in the College of Letters & Sciences.

Instructional Planning & Administration (IPA)

Instructional Planning and Administration (IPA) is a UC Davis-developed web application designed to make all aspects of academic scheduling faster and easier. 

IPA grew out of the needs of the academic coordinators on the UC Davis campus. It was envisioned by the UC Davis Administrative Application Development Initiative (AADI) and designed in conjunction with a volunteer committee made up of staff members from many departments on campus. Product design and development was performed by the DSS IT Developers Group.
