November 1: Systems Operations Center (SOC) changing names to Network Operations Center (NOC)

The WashU IT Systems Operations Center (SOC) will be renamed the Network Operations Center (NOC) to better align the name with the function.

The functions and subgroup (Command Center, Infrastructure Administration, and Analytics) of the NOC will not change. For more details, please see NOC at-a-glace.

Additionally, the IT industry uses SOC to refer to a Security Operations Center. Hence, NOC will further clarify the functions of Network Operations Center for external customers and vendors.
