The IS Applications Infrastructure Programme is Production Management's main programme of projects for maintaining and delivering benefits for the services run by IS Applications for users in IS and throughout the university.

The Production Management Manager is the Programme Owner. The programme focuses on development and enhancement of the Information Services technical infrastructure supporting the centrally managed services run by IS Applications  (servers, databases, software, security and networking) which underpin the business applications used by the University, but can also sponsor software, business analysis and collaborations with other sections and divisions, to improve our infrastructure.
