PRISMA is an information system for the management of studies in the entire UPC that started being developed at inLab FIB in 2001. Throughout 2001, the UPC outlined the definition of the functional and organizational model for the management of studies. InLab then took charge of the construction of the information system derived from this study.
PRISMA was and still is sufficiently flexible and adaptable to the needs of the different agents involved in both the processes of the UPC and the requirements arising from, for example, the adaptation of UPC studies to the European Higher Education Area.
The project involved the analysis of requirements, the design and development of all the software, the architecture design and the selection of the operating environment, the implementation in the operating environment and corrective and upgrading maintenance. New quality control systems and continuous security verifications of the entire environment have been implemented throughout the development of the project.
During late 2005 an internal UPC unit was created in order to continue the upgrading maintenance of this project. Today, the PRISMA Unit is a unit within the Teaching Department that gives support to the management of studies in the UPC through the development of information systems, and it also provides support and training to its users.
