These new websites leverage the power of UB's content management
system, UBCMS, to make it easier to focus on best practices for

New features include:
- Dashboard view of UBIT’s critical service statuses, based
on UBIT Alerts
- IT tips tailored for students, faculty and staff
- Targeted, section-wide search engines can be easily added. For
example, on the UBIT website, there is a search engine that only
searches within IT Policy descriptions.
- Hosting sites in the UBCMS reduces the frequency of broken
links. If the location of a webpage within the site changes, the
system will automatically update all links pointing to it.
