At Bentley our Information Technology (IT) infrastructure and services are shared by every department and division as part of their day to day operations. To ensure that IT funds and resources are directed towards supporting Bentley's strategic goals, we believe IT should be subject to some kind of shared governance. We have developed a governance system that will allow us to have open and direct conversations about our priorities and investment in IT infrastructure and services, and to align our activities with the strategic priorities of the university.
As the use of technology grows at Bentley, we are faced with difficult choices about how best to use technology to support academic and administrative goals of our university. A key function of IT governance is to provide guidance on those choices.
