One I.S. vision
Our shared future for all IT at SFU requires unification of the vast and diverse array of people, processes, data, and technologies together into a seamless system. We refer to this vision for all Information Systems (I.S.) at the University as One I.S. Creating One I.S. requires integration of our core administrative systems, development of a single integrated teaching & learning ecosystem, and implementation of a unified research computing environment.
Integrating our administrative systems requires development of interfaces linking our independent PeopleSoft system silos and developing tools to ensure they work together as a single system. It means creating a shared database capability to ensure the University makes decisions based on a single source of the data truth.
We will integrate our various teaching and learning tools onto a set of consistent platforms that are tightly integrated. By using a consistent information system architecture, we will provide the best support possible to the University’s teaching and learning mission.
Improving service to our researchers starts with unifying our research computing environment into an understandable collection of services that are consistent, easy to find, and well supported. Our strategic emphasis to be the preeminent leader in Canadian research computing demands exceptional effort from IT Services.
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 core values defined in the next section are the principles that will drive these improvements.
Engaging the SFU vision
The SFU vision for engaging students, research, and communities drives the Education, Research, and Community pillars of our strategy. The Administration, Digitalization, and People pillars are necessary to support this engagement. Ultimate success of the plan is determined the realization of our One I.S. vision.
