How has USCIS changed since March 2003?

I’ve seen many changes, especially in technology. When I first started in this position I listened to many (many, many…) complaints about our computer systems. We were operating on Windows 95 (in the year 2005!), still using cc:Mail and operating on an old version of Novell for our network. In the last year we’ve migrated to Windows XP, Microsoft Exchange/Outlook and implemented Windows Server 2003 for the network. We’ve updated CLAIMS 3 and other core Center applications. As part of the Workstation Technology Refresh we received new workstations with flat panel monitors. We’ve come a long way in the last year and I rarely hear complaints about our systems anymore. That’s a major change that I can live with.

Quite an improvement. Anything that makes them process our applications faster is welcome.

If they need programmers to write software to speed up processing, I would like to volunteer :-)
