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.

Team Responsibilities:

  • Business IT planning
  • Business engagement
  • Identify collaborative working opportunities
  • Collect feedback on IT Services
  • High-level requirements definitions

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.
