This landmark project began in August of 2018 and required the dedication of hundreds of Baylor staff and faculty to the transformation of Baylor business. Many hours of planning, process redesign, configuration, testing, data conversion, meetings, executive reviews, communications, and training went into this transformation.

Shopping in the Ignite Marketplace
A major enhancement Ignite has provided is the ability to shop in the new marketplace.

When Project Ignite moved into our headquarters in Moody Memorial Library in June of 2019, we expected to anxiously babysit the Ignite Go-Live a year later from that space. As it turns out, COVID-19 had other plans for the last weeks before Go-Live. However, the great collaborative space in Moody certainly contributed to the success of the project by hosting meetings, testing sessions, training classes, ad hoc discussions, and coffee conversations for the Baylor and Huron Ignite teams. Oh, and don’t forget the beach balls and twinkle lights!
