Office of Information Technology FY’03 Budget Presentation Presented by Stephen Landry, Ph.D. Chief Information Office January 4, 2002
Overview of OIT Annual Operating Budget: $14,931,000 –Salaries and Wages: $ 5,465,000 –Mobile Computing Prog.:$ 5,110,000 –General Operating:$ 4,356,000 Full Time Employees:98 –Supervisors:21 –Professional Staff63 –Non-Exempt Staff14
OIT Guiding Principles The work of the Office of Information Technology is guided by: –University vision, mission, and strategic goals –University IT Long-Range Plan of 1995 (revised 1997)
1995 IT Plan Timing was fortuitous –Question: What major technology innovation, impacting the University’s IT Plan, became widely available in 1993?
1995 IT Plan Timing was fortuitous –Question: What major technology innovation, impacting the University’s IT Plan, became widely available in 1993? –Answer: The World Wide Web (Mosaic became the first Web commercially available Web browser in 1993).
SHU IT Strengths National accolades for IT Successful implementation of challenging IT Long-Range Plan Mobile Computing Program provides state- of-the-art computing resources to faculty and students
SHU IT Strengths (cont.) Mobile Computing Assessment Program shows technology has positive impact on student engagement / student learning. This agrees with national results, e.g., Center for Postsecondary Research and Planning at Indiana University, on degree of campus “wiredness” and results of the College Student Experience Questionnaire (CESQ).
SHU IT Strengths (cont.) Robust campus network Stable administrative system. Web access through “Web for …” products. Critical mass of faculty using technology to enhance teaching and learning
SHU IT Weaknesses IT Long-Range Plan strategically elected to focus on teaching and learning. As a result, development of administrative systems have not kept pace with developments on academic side. –Thought Experiment: What would SHU look like today if the investments made in instructional technology had been made in administrative systems?
SHU IT Weaknesses (cont.) SCT IA-Plus2000 administrative system is functionally rich, but based on 15 year old technology –not based on current relational database technology –difficult to maintain –difficult to develop new applications
SHU IT Weaknesses (cont.) University currently the lacks fiscal and human resources to develop many enhancements to the current administrative system –E.g., online time sheets, online AOC’s, online access to “On Course”, Web-based procurement system, online scheduling system, online alumni directory, etc., etc., etc.
SHU IT Weaknesses (cont.) Many employees not adequately trained in the use of technology Inadequate life cycle replacement for administrative desktops, printers, etc. V-Mail at end-of-life Many classrooms not technology-friendly Many graduate and part-time students do not have the same access to technology as undergraduates Inadequate technology planning in some departments / units
Planning & Budgetary Issues University is poised to make significant gains in teaching and learning; taking this to next level requires leadership, resources, and persistence Technology is fundamental to enabling University College / SWW to achieve their revenue goals; how this technology will be funded / implemented remains unclear Enhancing the University administrative systems is critical to maintaining ongoing operations
