Information Technology Infrastructure Assessment

An information technology infrastructure assessment can provide a snapshot of your institution’s current technology environment within the framework of an information systems architecture.  The assessment delineates the system components across multiple inter-related layers of systems.  These architectural layers are buttressed by the institution’s articulated or presumed information systems philosophy, vision, and guiding IT principles as well as by IT best practices.  

An objective, third-party information technology review can help you assess what is currently working well at your institution, what is creating inefficiencies and needs to be improved, and how your institution’s IT infrastructure and services need to evolve to better serve your constituents.

focusEDU analysts can facilitate a rigorous objective information technology infrastructure assessment using our information systems architecture framework, concluding with a set of recommendations that can serve as a prelude to strategic and tactical/operational planning efforts, aligned with your institutional mission and vision.
