#SiteMaker Update: PROJECT COMPLETE
<PUBLISHED IN ITS CONNECTION POINTS DECEMBER 17, 2015>
ITS decommissioned SiteMaker on November 30, marking the end of a successful two-year project! With help from our terrific colleagues at the Library, Medical School Information Services, LSA, and other units, SiteMaker went from a service with over 12,000 sites in 2013 to zero active sites today.
Here is a quick overview of what the project accomplished:
-- Completed 900+ deletion and 984 archive requests.
-- Performed over 150 consultations.
-- Assisted in over 1,000 site migrations to alternate services.
What’s left to do:
-- Fulfill remaining archive requests. That effort is on schedule to be complete by the end of December.
-- Work with the U-M Web Team and Hostmaster on scheduling a cutover to a new virtual host for DNS redirects.
-- Consolidate and archive project documentation and prepare final project reports.
