UQ has a vast portfolio of IT projects that need to be managed efficiently. It is critical that all projects are aligned with the IT strategy and have appropriate project governance.
In order to promote continuous improvement, ITS implements a LEAN program in the division and supports management in their use of LEAN methodologies. ITS also facilitates training to improve understanding of continuous improvement.
The Chief Information Officer evaluates, directs and monitors IT management. Critical KPIs are identified and measured to assist in this process and conduct annual benchmarking activities.
IT Category Management provides an IT purchasing and procurement approach that drives value for UQ, responds to the UQ community’s expectations and supports the IT Strategy.
Ensuring a communication plan is in place at an initiation stage is essential to ensuring that early consideration is given to messages and updates you wish to provide for staff, students and specifically identified stakeholders.
Enterprise Architecture (EA) is the process that interweaves business and IT together to achieve 'One UQ'. It provides knowledge and insight to inform strategic planning, improve decision-making, and enhance agility.
As technical solutions for cyber security have improved, attackers have increasingly targeted users to gain unauthorised access to an organisation’s sensitive data assets.UQ uses a risk-based approach, aligning cyber security risk with business risk to facilitate appropriate ownership by the governing bodies of UQ.
