The SFU IT leadership team will take you on our journey to implement a vision of One I.S. where all Information Systems will work together in a seamless fashion, and everyone who supports those systems will work together in a seamless fashion. To achieve this vision, close cooperation and collaboration across all information systems providers throughout the university is required. This vision of unified information systems also requires significant internal improvements within the IT Services organization. The panel will discuss key successes and challenges in moving forward with the vision at a large research university with a vast array of IT services, complex funding sources, and contradictory demands. We will discuss key processes such as stewardship, planning, socialization and transformation within the context of a higher education organization where there are infinitely more ideas than money.
