IT Infrastructure Division (ITI) 18/19

2018-19 is another year of planning and delivering transformation and growth for the university, much of it via the benefits 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, plus development of our new Data Safe Haven and Data Vault services  and continuing DRS Outreach: 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 our desktops to Windows 10, upgrade our door access system, and several projects to improve 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 eight programmes for 2018/19

  • Divisional and Directorate   Emergent programme
