Innovator, 2016

For developing new processes that improved communication and made the ITS Database Administration group more efficient with its time, Jason Santee has won the latest RockIT Award for Innovation.

While working as interim assistant director last year, Jason devised several different ways to streamline processes that freed up DBA time for other tasks. He also made behind-the-scenes changes in how users log in to MAP (Mountaineer Administrative Processes), minimizing the down time for users.

Before the launch of the new TeamDynamix system at it.wvu.edu/help, Jason also came up with a temporary solution to a problem with work requests coming in from multiple systems, or in personal emails.

Without Jason, the DBA group would not be as efficient as it is, and our database and middleware applications would not appear to function as seamlessly as they do to students, faculty and staff.
