Shari Lewison has been named Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) of the University of Iowa, bringing a wealth of IT experience to the position.
The 2017 OneIT Year in Review is published at https://oneit.uiowa.edu/year-review-2017.
The report focuses on the portfolio of projects initiated through the Transparent, Inclusive Efficiency Review (TIER)—which have saved $3.5 million to date, allowing resources to be reinvested in core-mission endeavors. It also highlights progress in operating as a unified IT organization.
Tech Forum is free, open to all IT professionals at the university, and held at the Iowa Memorial Union. This year one goal of the event is to build relationships across Health Care Information Systems (HCIS) and OneIT and better understand each organization as integration efforts begin. If you have ideas for speakers or topics, please send suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More than 40 IT leaders are involved in drafting the OneIT Strategic Plan, in collaboration with campus stakeholders and the broader IT community. The plan will be completed in spring 2017.
Council leaders are reviewing the status of initiatives on their roadmaps, and will publish the next batch of roadmaps by July 1, after the IT strategic plan is finalized.
University technology leaders are increasing collaboration across Health Care Information Systems and OneIT to better serve the entire campus. The long-term vision is a fully integrated IT environment that supports the breadth of university activities and enables success in teaching, research, and healthcare.
The OneIT Leaders group met Nov. 30 to begin work on a OneIT Strategic Plan. They will work on the plan through a series of three retreats in the coming months, with the goal of having it approved by the OneIT Strategy Team in February.
The new OneIT Roadmaps are now available at https://oneit.uiowa.edu/roadmaps. Developed by the six OneIT Councils and approved by the OneIT Strategy Team, the roadmaps show current and planned IT projects happening across campus. We encourage you to take a look.
We have developed a fun, informative animation to explain the new OneIT Governance Process that we implemented this year. The video is under three minutes in length and does a nice job explaining how an idea that is not already on a roadmap flows through the process. Check it out at: https://oneit.uiowa.edu/governance-process.
