IT Infrastructure Division (ITI) 17/18

2017-18 is another year of planning and delivering transformation and growth for the university, much of it via the benefits to be delivered by ITI projects across its programmes and projects.

Replacement of the data network and the phones network, the Internet of Things and City Deal,  and the review of our Researches Services  user engagement plus new Data Safe Haven and Data Vault services : all are significant, strategic developments which ITI are enabling.

ITI also continues to ensure our systems and infrastructure are compliant, updated and secure - with major projects to upgrade to Windows 10, upgrade our door system, and several projects to improved our firewalls and internal network security.

The division continues to roll out and adopt formal project management to improve delivery, visibility of work, better allocation of resources, and the management, governance and reporting of projects.

There are six programmes for 2017/18, aligned with the ITI Sections

These are owned by the Section Heads and managed by the ITI Portfolio Manager

The Division also has
