Business Partnering

The Business Partnering team acts as a trusted partner between IT Services and the University.

The team works with University staff to generate value for the institution through technological advancements. It helps define strategic purpose and requirements before committing IT resources. It filters out demand which is poorly justified, and advocates initiatives for which there is a strong business case.

The team works closely with the Enterprise Architecture team to ensure that proposed technical solutions are sound and the Project Management Office to ensure they are delivered.
