Strategic IT Accountability Board - March 2011 Update

March 4, 2011

At its March 2011 meeting, the Strategic Information Technology Accountability Board (SITAB) endorsed minimum standards for classroom technology in centrally managed, general purpose classrooms. These standards were developed by the long-standing Classroom Technology Committee lead by Joe TenBarge, and were vetted and approved by both the Research and Educational Technology Committee (R&E) and the Operational IT Committee (OIT). The goal is to measure the state of current classroom technology and provide guidance for future investments in campus classroom renovations and new construction.

SITAB also endorsed the BSC recommendation to move forward with a test of the change management software tool (using Innowake technology) for administrative systems. The goal of this project is to address a longstanding audit finding regarding the need to strengthen controls for promoting programming code from development into production. The Administrative IT Leaders group (AITL) recommended the Innowake technology because it supports currently used programming languages in our development environments across campus. Financial Information Services, Student Information Services and Information Technology Services will be collaborating in this test.
