OneIT@Iowa: Progress, Plans, Promise

Looking back at the first year of OneIT@Iowa, it’s remarkable to reflect on how much has changed and how much headway has been made.

We are one-third of the way through our projects, on track to complete the TIER IT initiatives within the three-year target, and have already documented TIER savings of over $2 million. We are extremely pleased with this progress; the IT community deserves tremendous credit for taking on 16 major efficiency projects, in addition to their daily work, without missing a beat. We’ve strengthened relationships, built trust, improved communication, and increased transparency. Connections developed through OneIT activities are sparking new ideas and solutions.  

This report details the headway made in the first year of OneIT. I hope our IT community will read it and share a strong sense of pride in all we have accomplished together, and that others will be as impressed as I am at the volume and value of collaborative change that has transpired in this short span of time.

What’s Next

In the coming year we will work to maintain the momentum of OneIT progress to stay on track with our savings and timeline targets. We will continue to make significant progress in two of our largest OneIT endeavors, the End User Support (EUS) and Data Center and Server (DCS) projects.

Several initiatives are close to completing their project scope: IT Project Management Office, Application Portfolio Management, Governance, and Human Resources Processes. We are also eager to move forward with four projects that haven’t yet started due to dependencies on other efforts.
