Managing Computing Standards in a Distributed Environment Using the World Wide Web


The University of Idaho has implemented university-wide computing standards that apply to all administrative application programs that run in a production environment. The Web is used to distribute those standards, download forms used in change management, submit requests, and more. Going from a centralized computing staff to a distributed model required standards approved by all university vice presidents. This paper describes the background of the standards, several major portions (authority, change management, C programming standards and guidelines, library of common C programming functions, the peer review process, and naming conventions) and its application using the Web.
