Impact of Future Engineering Operation Model

  • Steve Mattson
  • University of Michigan
traditional model
Traditional Model
  • New technologies grew up organically in the College of Engineering in response to specific local needs.
  • Other U-M schools also developed their own local IT services, with some overlap.
    • Some call this “running amok”
  • Central IT groups did not develop scaled-up infrastructure services available for use by academic units.
  • As a result, there are few central services available today.
campus initiatives
Campus Initiatives
  • IT Rationalization
    • Operating existing IT more cost-efficiently
    • U-M estimates that it spends ~$300M / year on IT.
      • 60% of that is spent outside of central IT.
      • Some portion of that is spent on perceived redundant services.
  • NextGen Michigan
    • Deploying new technologies / capabilities
  • IT Capital Projects Process
    • Funding IT projects >$1M

concerns
Concerns
  • When are centralcampus services good enough or close enough?
  • Timing of transitions to central IT?
    • Continuing unit support for legacy services?
  • Maintaining expertise without operating the corresponding infrastructure
  • Funding model for IT
