System Requirements - Enterprise Applications

These requirements are based directly on the documented success and support of these products from their vendors, and therefore are the configurations supported by the AITS Service Desk. If you have any questions about these recommendations, contact the AITS Service Desk at (217) 333-3102 or (312) 996-4806. If you have a problem with a system that does not meet the recommended requirements, the AITS Service Desk will still make every reasonable attempt to assist you.
