GALAXY is a mainframe portal providing secure access to University data through centrally maintained tasks and functions that support the various business processes of the University.
Service providers and academic and administrative units have access to collections of functions that cover many aspects of business at the university, such as student systems, identity and access management, reporting, and a view of historical financial and HR systems (through FY 2011). Some of the functions within GALAXY have equivalents on the Web but a large number of functions are only accessible through the mainframe based portal.
Galaxy utilizes two-tiered security: access requires a mainframe BFID (Business Function ID) and SecurID. Contact your local Data Security Administrator (DSA) to request access.
