Oracle Collaboration Suite

Introduction

CSE tried calendaring with Oracle Collaboration Suite (OCS) from Fall 2007 until Spring 2008. The College of Arts and Sciences Educational Technology (CASET) node had an existing OCS server, so we accepted their offer to host a CSE OCS instance. Marty Camacho created our OCS instance.

CSE faculty and staff hated this application. It required too many clicks to perform simple tasks, and each click took 3-10 seconds to process. Diane asked us to kill it and revert to the paper conference room scheduling book on March 24, 2008.
