IT Maturity Driving Centralization

A Move Toward Centralization for Improved IT Maturity

Is your IT department stretched a little thin these days? Finding a balance between the day-to-day and major projects on campus is hard. And it’s probably safe to assume you don’t have unlimited resources at your disposal.

Don’t worry—no one else does either, so you’ll need to make the most of what you have. Speaking of—do you even know how your resources are being utilized?

With a centralized IT department, you need to have a 30,000-foot view of what’s happening with projects all over campus so that resources can be allocated and utilized effectively. By having the right tool at your fingertips, you’ll be able to track a resource pool’s time across these projects, as well as daily operational work. This, in turn, will also provide you with concrete, real-world data you can use when planning future projects.

Jeri Schefts, Manager of IT Service Management at Boston College, leverages IT Service Management (ITSM) and Project Portfolio Management (PPM) from TeamDynamix to help them provide a better customer service experience and work more efficiently.
