We ensure these IT building blocks create services that are strategic, user-centred, reliable, secure, data-driven, and sustainable.
Enterprise architecture, comprising:
- Business architecture
- Infrastructure architecture
- Application architecture
- Data architecture
- Reusable design frameworks and
- Guiding the development of standardised services which are fit for purpose
Our approach - which supports all aspects of University research, teaching, learning and professional services - is divided into three primary areas:
These are the core digital ecosystems and the underpinning technology backbone areas which define the IT 'blueprint' of the University. Roadmaps and detailed architectures are developed in each of these areas.
- Business capabilities
Business capabilities form a useful model of the University’s business processes and how people, processes, information, and technology combine to deliver our institutional research, teaching and learning outputs. This forms a comprehensive model against which software and technologies can be mapped to form an aligned portfolio of services.
- Architecture principles
Our Architecture principles help ensure that products and services we procure or develop align with the core business needs of the University, along with legislative and statutory requirements. These are used within the IT Services governance framework when aligning solutions and services to requirements.
