The IT Strategic Plan, outlining a three to five-year view of how Information Technology will evolve to meet CU’s changing needs as part of the overall IT Governance project, has been released. While portions of the plan are still being determined, IT units from across CU were able to collaborate, anticipate future IT needs and establish priorities by campus.
The IT Strategic Plan provides a blueprint for how CU addresses emerging needs in a thoughtful manner within the limitations of budget, resources and other considerations. The strategic plan aims to serve as a communication vehicle, providing stakeholders with a view of how technology changes are likely to unfold.
This process, which began in the fourth quarter of 2017, involved all four campuses and UIS working together to understand the issues facing administrative business units, while supporting campus priorities, common IT priorities across the university and efficient maintenance of existing IT services provided by UIS. In parallel with this effort, IT service providers gathered information about multi-campus ERP IT services via facilitated sessions with stakeholder groups resulting in the strategic priorities of Service Excellence, Increase University Capabilities by Knowing the Customer and Frictionless Data.
The current strategic plan can be found on the IT governance website. Below, you will find a high-level summary of strategic priorities, including UIS’s purpose, values and guiding principles derived from strategic planning conversations.
