The university strategic plan drives the fordham it vision
The University Strategic Plan ...... drives the Fordham IT Vision ...

The Plan presents a vision for the University’s future from today to 2016. The Plan initiatives focus on:

  • the quality of undergraduate life and learning,

  • the prominence of the professional schools,

  • wide ranging communications and community building,

  • an active projection of mission and identity and

  • the development of resources including people, places, infrastructure and finances.


Some perspective
Some perspective…

Student and Faculty Expectations

Reliable, Fast, Secure and Ubiquitous access to systems and information resources is critical to increasing service levels, maintaining Fordham University’s competitive position and realizing and making progress “Toward 2016.”


More perspective
More perspective…

21st Century Students

“Our students have changed radically” this is the observation of Marc Prensky in his article "Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants.“

High expectations from University of choice

“Without a consistent IT architecture and infrastructure, and an appropriate IT governance model, modern colleges and universities are simply not able to recruit and retain first-rate scientists and scholars.”

“An inadequate IT infrastructure in higher education will result in a decline in the quality of students, faculty and research in the short term and probably extinction in the long run.”

-Jack McCredie, Does IT Matter to Higher Education, Educause Review


Our opportunities
Our Opportunities…

  • Renew our mission and vision for IT to align with the university strategic goals

  • Modernize the IT organization

  • Brand and market IT internally and externally

  • Build customer trust in IT by becoming the provider of choice for IT services at Fordham University

  • Become a fully integrated business partner with other operating units and academic departments


So our objective was to

How?

Prepare an IT strategic mission and vision that is aligned with the University Strategic Plan – Toward 2016

Create strategic initiatives to implement the vision

Identify key projects in support of the initiatives

Identify a financial, resource and organizational framework to deliver the supporting projects and maintain the existing University legacy environment

Regularly assess how we were doing vs. the vision

So, Our Objective was To …

…Transform Fordham IT from a traditional operational service model

to an enterprise strategic model that will meet University long term needs …

... IT transformation is frequently characterized as a journey not a destination ...

We started the journey in the Spring of 2006 … To Create a University Wide IT that is:

Flexible, Scalable, Reliable, Recoverable & Secure


Fordham it planning values

Operational Model

Maintain existing service levels; service at disruption point

Defer investments

Fix when broken

Decentralized planning and delivery

Creates ‘islands of automation’

Strategic Model ...

Life-cycle planning

Effective information management

Early follower

Central vs. decentralized – planning, information & ‘power’

Just-in-time purchasing decisions

Open, not proprietary systems

Buy, don't build, many vendors

Re engineer business processes first, ‘custom’ systems second

Monitor & control IT initiatives

University Wide: Flexible, Scalable, Reliable, Recoverable & Secure

Fordham IT Planning Values ...

Fordham it vision
Fordham IT Vision first half of 2006.

Our vision for information technology is to create an environment where all students, faculty and staff have easy and secure access to all the information technology resources and information they need, and to

provide an information technology infrastructure that grows with the institutional goals identified in the USP – Toward 2016.

  • We are committed to investing in technology to support our mission and to creating an information technology "baseline" that embraces the diversity and innovation that will allow Fordham to become preeminent among Catholic institutions.

  • Since we recognize that this baseline will be a moving target, we are committed to reviewing our IT plans on a regular basis to ensure that we are not falling behind.
