New roadmaps are now available, outlining current and planned technology projects happening on campus in the next two years. Roadmaps provide transparency and help with coordination of IT initiatives. They include major operational projects and strategic efforts. Some initiatives are clearly defined, while others will need more definition.

The roadmaps were developed by the seven OneIT councils, with input from the IT community and other key stakeholders, and address each of our nine strategic goals. The OneIT Strategy Team reviewed the roadmaps and prioritized funding requests. You’ll notice that some initiatives on the roadmaps align neatly with a strategic goal and council domain, while others cross or overlap. The Infrastructure & Architecture roadmap, for example, aligns with multiple strategies under various strategic goals.

There is a lot on the roadmaps. We will use them to guide efforts and do our best to accomplish as much as possible, knowing we may need to adjust timelines or shift priorities when unexpected projects arise.

Roadmaps will be updated twice a year, with progress tracked between updates. The annual roadmap cycle is being timed to align with the university budget process and the governance around it, to ensure funding and resource decisions are informed by priority initiatives on our roadmaps.
