Innovative IT is only possible when a stable infrastructure exists to support it. It is this infrastructure, after all, that makes it possible for people to connect, send email, store data and work together in the first place! It therefore remains an important part of our mission to provide secure and stable environment for all applications that Utrecht University employees, students, and teaching and research staff need.
As user numbers grow and our IT environment becomes more complex, our main infrastructure challenge is to ensure we can facilitate innovation without endangering stability. It’s important that we carefully anticipate future user growth, and stay on top of technical developments.
In the meantime, our organisation continues to develop its programme for a truly "next generation" digital environment, in which university users can work and learn anywhere, on any device, at any time.
