OIT Outstanding in Our Field

The University of Notre Dame ranks No. 15 among large organizations in IDG’s Computerworld 2018 list of the Best Places to Work in IT. The annual list recognizes the 100 top organizations that challenge their IT staffs while providing great benefits and compensation. Notre Dame will be included in coverage on Computerworld.com along with results from the 2018 Best Places to Work in IT survey.

 

We are honored and humbled to once again be recognized by Computerworld. We have worked hard to develop an IT culture at Notre Dame in which we make it a priority to take care of ourselves, our families and each other. If we do that well, we fundamentally believe that we will be happier and more focused at work, allowing us to serve our students, faculty and staff with ever-increasing levels of excellence,” said Vice President and Chief Information and Digital Officer Ron Kraemer.

 

The Office of Information Technologies (OIT) at Notre Dame continues to deliver the IT services necessary for students, faculty and staff throughout the University by delivering value, driving innovation and developing talent while closely collaborating with others teams throughout campus. OIT staff work on diverse Notre Dame initiatives from learning analytics to digital asset management to contemporary network design for new facilities, while continuing to provide outstanding support for the day-to-day technology needs of campus.

 

“Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen an already tight market for tech talent get even tighter,” said Computerworld executive editor Ken Mingis. “Computerworld’s 2018 Best Places to Work in IT list illustrates that the companies that offer the best working environments aren’t satisfied with rolling out one or two initiatives. They seek an edge in the talent marketplace through a combination of good salaries, great benefits, ready access to training and the deployment of cutting-edge technologies. They recognize that the top tech talent can easily move to the organization that respects them best, and they are determined to be that organization.”

 

The Best Places to Work in IT list is an annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals by IDG’s Computerworld. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, training and retention. In addition, Computerworld conducts extensive surveys of lT workers, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings.

 

Computerworld is the leading technology media brand empowering enterprise users and their managers. Computerworld also offers guidance to IT managers tasked with optimizing client systems — and helps businesses revolutionize the customer and employee experience with new collaboration platforms.
