IS&T provides a number of web services for accessing enterprise data or integrating with our central systems through the MIT Developer Connection. Application developers can integrate with or consume data from these systems using a standard protocol, instead of using a custom, application-specific protocol (Moira, MITID DB), or raw SQL (Data Warehouse, RolesDB).
Passwords protect and limit access to your personal data and to IT resources at MIT.
If your password is over a year old, you will be required to change it when you renew your MIT certificate(s). Note: IS&T will never ask you to send or reset your password via email.
The Data Warehouse is a stable, read-only database that combines information from separate systems into one easy-to-access location.
IS&T offers Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service and telephones as well as a softphone software program for making calls using internet-connected devices.
IS&T assists the MIT community with computing needs analysis and purchasing advice. Laptop computers running the Windows or macOS operating system (OS) are strongly recommended for Institute faculty and staff since they provide the maximum flexibility needed to work anywhere on campus.
Note: IS&T co-location Data Centers are currently subject to MIT’s COVID-19 campus access protocols.
IS&T Data Centers provide MIT departments, labs, and centers (DLCs) an environmentally secure location for housing your servers and related equipment. Your servers will be provided with rack space, power, cooling, and network connectivity.
