RESUMO:

In the senveties, Rio Grande do Norte’s Federal University went trhough an intense technology
improvement process in its academical and administrational activities. For that it was necessary
to hire software development companies, since there was no staff assigned for that task back
then. After that, the Data Processing Departament and the Computer Science Departament were
created. In the nineties, Rio Grande do Norte’s Federal University realized the need to create an 

internal section which not only could manage softwares, but also develop them according to the
institution needs and peculiarities leading to the creation of the Computing Superintendency, an
unit which was held responsible for the Integrated Systems development. The Integrated Systems
developed presented several resources and funcionalities which every university could possibly
need to manage it’s activities and therefore Rio Grande do Norte’s Federal University began to
stablish cooperation deals with other federal educational institutions, leading today to 46 active
deals. Based on that, it’s known that a simple functional software development is not enough, but
it’s necessary a good usability by its users. The mentioned usability is related to the interface’s
eficacy and effiency to the user and his reaction to it. The use quality criterions of a software
enhance some characteristics of the human-computer interaction and the interface that makes
them suitable to the expected use of the system. That way, the presente work intends a historical
rescue of the technology improvement process in the Rio Grande do Norte’s Federal University,
as well as to point the Integrated Systems evolution developed in the institution, besides
investigating the change happened in the previous Integrated Systems which were only centered
in the technology to the design centered on the user paradigm. To accomplish the mentioned
mission, it will be used the oral history tool by the system’s developers and users in order to
analyses the changes happened to the academicals activities of the university since the beginning
of the computer era in the institution. Through the analysis of the preliminary results, the
remarkable difficulty found is found for the implementation of computerization in UFRN,
especially regarding: hiring technical personnel with the desired profile, implementation of
robust systems and difficult to operationality building culture that the use of these systems was a
purely mechanical task of nature and dislike by the faculty of using these systems.
