What is it?

This service allows you to request the installation or updating of approved software on YSU owned computers or a virtual environment managed by IT such as the YSU App Cloud. There are some software packages which are available for installation on Non-YSU owned devices (ex. SPSS).

New software installation should not be requested unless the procurement process is complete (including free software) which includes a technical review and pre-approval before the purchase request will be approved. See the procurement guidelines here. 

Where to get it?

Check the following lists to see if the software is already available for installation:

If the software is not on any of these lists:

  • Please have any software installation media, licensing information and vendor contact information available.
  • Additional time may be required to build and test deployment package if the software needs to be installed on multiple computers.

To make the request, click the  Request Service button on this page.

How to use it?
