Adding Third-Party Applications to HWS Systems

Summary (what you get)

IT Services actively facilitates the integration of third-party applications with HWS Systems. These applications may not be supported or licensed by IT Services. In most cases, the support and maintenance of the application are between the user(s) and the third-party vendor.

When you receive it

There is an approval process for all requests for addition to any HWS system. Each application will be reviewed by IT Services for security compliance and overall system stability. The approval process is based on levels of risk. When applicable, a vendor-specific risk assessment is conducted to capture details about the vendor and the sensitivity of the data to which the vendor will have access. This will be used to determine the risk of the vendor.
