OCIO: IT Strategy, Planning & Architecture

The IT Strategy, Planning, & Architecture group in the Office of the CIO includes the following areas of focus:

Data Governance

Data governance is responsible for the consistent definition, administration and use of data and information assets across the university.  Data governance collaborates with stakeholders and stewards across the academy and administration to create consistent definitions of terms and to ensure and encourage appropriate transparency and sharing of University information. Together, these areas provide a framework to successfully manage core enterprise services for the University, to ensure the OIT partners with campus, and to measure how well the OIT delivers services to campus.

Enterprise Architecture

Enterprise Architecture is responsible for translating the University’s vision and strategy into effective technology service solutions. The architecture team collaborates with the academy, administrators, students, and technologists to leverage core capabilities to ensure the reliability, interoperability, scalability and efficiency of technology services. The Enterprise Architects have established architecture principles to help if you are looking for a new IT solution.
