  • Develop sustainable funding strategies for all IT services
  • Embrace an appropriate mix of vendor-supplied and open source applications and services
  • Foster technical and leadership growth for IT service staff members

recent examples of progress to date
Recent Examples of Progress to Date
  • Charter 6.3 – to support high-throughput and high-performance computing, UW-Madison is deploying the OpenFlow switching protocol…
  • Charter 7.2a – a team has been working since December of 2009 to develop the business and functional requirements of a tool that would serve as a clearinghouse for exchanging information about campus IT resources
  • Charter 9.2a – Following requests from departments and schools, UW-Madison purchased an enterprise license for a content management system. 39 users to date
  • Charter 6.4 – Project Bamboo is an effort to broaden the use of technology in the arts and humanities and will launch a HUBZero instance. The HubZero platform enables its users to build powerful web sites that support scientific discovery, learning and collaboration.

…and the list goes on

preparing for an efficiency consultant
Preparing for an efficiency consultant…
  • Focus on administrative efficiency
  • Making choices
  • Practicing reflective listening
  • Having patience
reflective listening
Reflective Listening?

We all hear that things should be different yet it is difficult to be the one to change. Consider how someone who doesn't live in your immediate work-world might answer the following questions:

  • What does it mean to have more reliable email and efficient calendaring?
  • What does it mean to be secure?
  • Why should we broaden the use of technology in the arts and sciences?
  • What does it mean to have state-of-the-art learning spaces?
  • How can the University be more efficient and still remain technologically innovative?
  • What does it mean to have high performance, high through-put computing?
  • What does it mean to be technologically literate?
  • How can we capitalize on our core enterprise services?
  • What are core IT services?
