IT Strategic Plan: Vision

The implementation of this Strategic Plan will prepare the collegiate University to achieve the maximum benefit from information technology innovations, increasing research capability, enhancing teaching and learning, and delivering efficiencies in support of administrative functions.  It will play an important role in supporting the recruitment and retention of world-class students, researchers, academics and IT staff, while providing the foundation for the global sharing of research and teaching resources.

arrows It puts in place infrastructure to enable all staff and students to communicate effectively, share information securely, and collaborate locally and globally. Collaboration and partnership are central to the strategy, because they will enable the development of a stronger IT organisation that supports delivery of services end-to-end, and is able to respond effectively to the evolving technology landscape. They are also key to increasing engagement with staff and students to ensure that services meet their needs; and to partnering with third parties both in the delivery of services and in the integration of IT beyond the perimeters of the University.

Through an emphasis on IT service excellence, the Strategic Plan establishes a framework to drive improved project and service delivery. The recent past has seen new central information systems and the next five years focuses on getting the best value we can from those systems, increasing benefits through improving information quality and accessibility, which will enable better decision making.

With a continuing focus on training and best practice dissemination the Strategic Plan aims to empower teachers and researchers to innovate, staff to use IT systems effectively, and students to improve their digital literacy for discovering, evaluating, and creating information using digital technologies.

These features combine to result in an improved student and academic digital experience in an internationally leading University.
