Quarterly and Annual Reports
ITS releases a quarterly review that covers our technology upgrades and achievements and notable stats. Prior to shifting to quarterly reviews in 2020, ITS published annual reports for six consecutive years, highlighting ITS’ projects and work.6-Year Accomplishments Timeline
ITS’ October 2020 Quarterly Review shares how our teams prepared faculty, technology in teaching spaces, and students in on-campus housing for a Fall semester that initially included in-person instruction and life. You’ll also read about the importance of data-driven decision making — our Enterprise Reporting & Departmental Systems division developed a dashboard solution when the University needed to know the movement of students through campus for Fall semester COVID-19 planning.
Our second quarterly report also covers the beginning migration to a new Voice-over-Internet-Protocol phone system for campus, the upgrade of core database system platforms, the release of the new “My Learning” module of Carolina Talent, and the roll out of the BuyCarolina marketplace portal.
In addition, this report acquaints you with the new names of two of our groups — Educational Technologies and Software Distribution. Finally, you’ll learn more about the people of ITS.
July 2020 Quarterly Review
With the arrival of COVID-19 and the shift to remote learning, teaching and working in March 2020, much of the first half of 2020 was anything but normal. Fittingly, ITS’ July 2020 Quarterly Review — our inaugural quarterly report — covers an unconventional and longer span of February through July.
The Quarterly Review provides at-a-glance highlights of technology upgrades, projects and ITS’ collaborations with campus, including ways ITS helped support the University’s shift to primarily remote operations at the beginning of the pandemic.
The report covers how teams across ITS provided expertise to the Heroes Health Initiative and how individual units adjusted services and operations to support customers while also keeping them and employees safe.
You’ll also read about initiatives that ITS advanced. The day-to-day technology needs of the University continue regardless of the pandemic: improvements to ServiceNow, Wi-Fi, Carolina’s Time Information Management (TIM) system and cybersecurity awareness training, to name just a few.
