Applications staff have not been able to review Disaster Recovery (DR) documentation and procedures, and execute a DR test, in the last few years, thus increasing the level of technical debt and leaving University Priority Services at risk in case of major disasters.

The strategic plan is to have regular annual DR projects that will bring us to a level where our DR plans are well understood, the required processes documented and elements of the tests have been tested as far as possible.

This project has been initiated to review data which is sitting in key RIS systems e.g., Pure Int and Worktribe and identify if this can be purged if not required or review progresses to remove the capture of this data.

- We have data sitting in PUREINT which requires purging as it’s not needed, and elements of the data syncing with Pure which is not needed (e.g., gender in the EUCLID feed). These data items should be expunged from the staging tables and removed from the feed we’re ingesting as they’re not required.
