Information technology touches every part of our campus. Its rapid growth challenges us to strategically leverage our resources to efficiently provide the best services we can. To that end, collaboration is vital.
Today, a new system-wide collaboration in Information Technology Services begins with the creation of OneIT at the University of Nebraska.
It's a new way of organizing our information technology resources across all parts of the university system.
Why the change? Ever-changing technology calls for a more efficient, effective, proactive, and progressive organizational model.
Here’s how OneIT will work:
We’re at the very beginning of this transition, so as further decisions are made, we’ll keep the university community updated on any changes.
With input from partners across the university system, Mark, Bret and the IT leadership team are creating a thoughtful and thorough plan for implementing this model. I’m confident that our levels of service will not be interrupted by this change. In fact, I expect OneIT to strengthen our capabilities in many IT areas, such as cybersecurity and data analysis.
Please note that this initiative is separate from the work of the IT Budget Response Team task force, and pre-dates the task force. However, as an effort to provide more impactful, cost-effective technology services to all University of Nebraska campuses. OneIT certainly complements the task force's mission.
