Important Date Change:

All Mainframe Accounts Will Now Be Deactivated on Saturday, March 30, 2019

Dear Colleagues,

As previously communicated, the University of Miami made a commitment to replace legacy systems with new, comprehensive, cloud-based applications, including a student information system (CaneLink in 2013), and a human capital management and finance system (Workday HR and Payroll in 2015, and Workday Finance in 2017). The legacy mainframe system will be deactivated on Saturday, March 30, 2019 (instead of the previously communicated date of March 1, 2019).

Specifically, the following mainframe-related systems will be deactivated:

  • Culprit Reporting
  • DHRS
  • DMAS
  • Financial Systems (FRS, Sponsored A/P and A/R, etc.)
  • Microstrategy – Data Warehouse
  • TSO

As the mainframe data has archival/historical value, it will be stored in UM's Business Intelligence portal, For questions regarding historical data access and/or any other concerns, please contact the mainframe decommissioning team at: For technical support, contact the UMIT Service Desk at: (305) 284-6565 or

If you have any other concerns, please contact one of us directly.

Thank you,
