IT Roadmaps

IT Roadmaps Overview

Information Services and Technology (IS&T) is partnering with customers to develop roadmaps for Administrative Systems, Customer Support, Data Management, Education Systems, Infrastructure, and Mobile Computing. These roadmaps will be reviewed and monitored by the governance committees. Developing these roadmaps in collaboration with IS&T's customers and stakeholders and reviewing them with the governance committees will enable thoughtful, planned, and collaborative decisions regarding future investments.

Why a Roadmap?

“The test of a roadmap is not whether you follow it, but whether it is helpful in deciding what to do next.”
