The key infrastructure supporting data staging and the main College data integrations is currently coming end of life and there is a need to upgrade the underlying operating systems and application layers to updated versions in support so they are more secure. The project involves commissioning of a number of new servers and porting of all data integrations to the new infrastructure. It also involves a procurement exercise to get a vendor to upgrade application layer. It also includes a penetration test by a third party of the applications post-build. Following a review of this, all data integrations and routines will be transitioned to the new infrastructure. The main benefits of this upgrade project include a supported and more robust infrastructure, upgraded applications with better functionality and an overall more secure solution.

Trinity Sports Union, formerly known as DUCAC recently underwent a redevelopment and rebranding process during the 2021/22 academic year. A significant part of the redevelopment of the sports union involved a review of current sports processes such as sport club signups and management. It has been determined that many of the current processes are outdated and are required to be revised to be more user-friendly and efficient for student users.

This project focuses on the implementation of a new sports club management software, Club Force, for all 49 sports clubs in Trinity College Dublin. The main benefits include an easy sign-up process, quick payment process and split payment functionality, and the ability for external members to sign up and be efficiently managed
as well as combining procedures for sports clubs, participation in sports, and volunteering currently hosted by several platforms.
