Information Services – 2016 Annual Review

The Information Services (IS) Annual Review 2016 showcases the developments and achievements that IS have accomplished over the previous year.

The IS team consists of approximately 300 FTE staff who support our global IT infrastructure, systems and services for students, staff and visitors. The team currently serve a global, digital community of over 43,000 students and 8,000 staff across the University’s UK, China and Malaysia campuses.

Our services range from managed desktops and laptops, data storage, email, printing, data and voice networking to major applications underpinning Finance, HR/Payroll, marketing, facilities management and conferencing.

Annual Review 2016

2016 has been a particularly exciting year for the Information Services team. View our Annual Review that was presented to University Exeuctive Board in March here.*

Information Services have seen significant developments in our cloud service offering with the move of approximately 30,000 staff, PGRs and associate email accounts to Office 365 – opening up possibilities for new ways of working across our global campuses.

We’ve collaborated with Project Transform to prepare for implementing Campus Solutions in Malaysia and China. We successfully completed Confirmation & Clearing in the UK and played a key role in the set-up of the new Student Service Centre infrastructure.

We’re also continuing to mature as an IS team, adopting industry standards and working to embed service management, change management, project life-cycle and architectural best practice in our day to day operations.
