ITS continuously invests in innovative IT for Utrecht University, and has a project portfolio that is always in motion.
These projects cover technical innovation as well as functional development, and run the range from setting up new HR portals and upgrading our data warehouse to developing new research tools. The diversity in our project portfolio illustrates our commitment to making optimal use of IT innovations that support research, teaching and learning in the broadest sense of the word.
Before a project starts, it is reviewed to ensure that it supports university policy and can be implemented in the existing technical environment. Every project is judged on feasibility and its financial framework, and progress is constantly monitored.
Our project managers are trained in several project management approaches. They can not only provide expert advice, for instance in selecting the method best suited for a project, but can also lead a project from start to finish. Early involvement of our project managers ensures you get the optimal results you want – on time, and on budget.
If necessary, we can tap into the expertise of trusted external partners to complement our own, and also provide consultancy and management to smoothly facilitate any changes or transitions that a project may involve.
