Transforming Education through Collaboration & Modernizing IT
Network stability, usable data metrics, dispersed systems, and securing University assets. The Information Technology department works to protect and innovate the University at it’s core. Our vision is to make interacting in Education as simple and cost-effective as checking scores or shopping with a smart phone.
The IT Network Operations team is currently addressing the ever-increasing need of reliable, fast networking infrastructure across the University. Our primary objective is to ensure students, faculty and staff have the connectivity they need to continue teaching, learning and researching by filling coverage gaps in areas with substandard or no wireless coverage, replacing incompatible or outdated equipment and doubling the bandwidth speed from 200 to 400mb/s.
A goal of every business is to make better business decisions than their competitors. That is where business intelligence (BI) comes in. BI turns the massive amount of data from operational systems into a format that is easy to understand, current, and correct so decisions can be made on the data.
At the center of any discussion about “data-driven decision making” there is one significant hurdle: taking large amounts of data, from disparate sources and in different formats, and transforming it into consistent, accurate and useful information. Over the next 2 years, our data initiative project implements data governance into our primary systems, data warehousing that includes historical and predictive trends. See the future.
Today, the quotation marks have been removed. The cloud is no longer a trend to analyze, but a reality to embrace. Many University systems are housed on-site – and gives us a single point of failure. Over the next two years we will be migrating from in house systems to cloud based where possible. Read more about our plan.
Office 365 Toolset
The recent migration of staff and faculty accounts to O365 has unified our resources and provided many tools not available before. Tools such as Microsoft ToDo, Planner and Teams increases collaboration where Forms and LearningTools invites interaction.
