This strategic plan delivery progress and reporting update was delivered in a presentation by Vikram Chadalawada, senior manager, Student Information Systems and IT@UofT Strategic Plan Delivery. Chadalawada discussed ITS’ progress on tracking and reporting IT@UofT Strategic Plan-related projects using Google Data Studio Reporting Dashboard. There are currently 252 active projects at an overall completion rate of almost 55 per cent complete.
The committee expressed interest in getting involved in using ServiceNow to implement a system that tracks their respective divisional IT projects and eventually all IT projects across U of T. The group expressed a great interest to meet again and discuss establishing policies and groundwork to create a tri-campus approach to organizing and reporting on all IT projects.
