Objectives: Meet rising demands for IT service while realizing cost savings by distinguishing between commoditized and differentiated IT services
|Optimize the IT portfolio|
"Loyola and Library IT groups need to focus on their differentiating services identifying synergies and reducing overlaps in services provided."
|Deliver critical IT services and infrastructure|
"'Cloud computing' can be looked at as a threat to traditional IT, or a way of extending its reach. I prefer the latter."
- Technology Services
|Realize the efficiencies of cloud computing|
"Loyola needs cutting-edge applications and infrastructure to align with the standard usage of the digital natives."
|Adopt differentiating technologies and services|
