The SUNY IT Transformation Team (ITTT) is seeking input from the SUNY CIOs on areas where the system should focus on IT Transformation. The CCIO Executive Board representatives and CCIO Sector representatives would like to be able to make recommendations based on due diligence and data. There are three areas we would like to get input on so that the CCIO sector reps can review the data and make meaningful recommendations to the IT Transformation Team for consideration. Each sector will have the opportunity to analyze, interpret, and comment on the data for the sector.
We ask you to provide information for these three areas:
The IT Service Catalog
The IT Services Catalog will help provide insight into opportunities that may exist for services that we are already providing to our campuses.
The Top Ten Priorities Survey will be used to determine priorities. Responses will be used to also determine what commonality there is among the campuses priorities so as to help establish (wherever possible) multi-campus collaborations, shared services, collective purchases, etc., that can be made.
The Campus IT Staffing Survey is intended to provide ourselves with realistic data on support resources we provide in various areas that are consistent with the EDUCAUSE Core Data Service (CDS) service areas. The intent is for us, the CCIO representatives on the ITTT, to have realistic data. This survey was distributed as Excel spreadsheet, which includes the instructions for entering data and returning the results.
Across all three areas, the goal is the same: To provide the data needed to analyze and identify realistic opportunities that meet the goals of the SUNY Shared Services initiative - improved services, increased efficiency, and increased savings to reinvest back into our campuses.
We ask that the CIOs to complete each of the three instruments (IT Service Catalog, IT Priorities, and IT Staffing) by August 10, 2012.
The Information Technology Transformation Team, to be populated with information technology leaders from System and campuses, will develop a systemwide IT collaboration platform for SUNY, align IT initiatives and outcomes to the goals of The Power of SUNY, and establish standards and practices that facilitate collaboration and communication on IT issues across SUNY.
