Enterprise Application and Decision Support Systems
Enterprise Applications and Decision Support Systems provides advice and execution of support services for New York Tech’s comprehensive portfolio of administrative applications, reporting and data analytics support systems, databases, data interfaces/integrations, and core business processes. Staff members collaborate extensively with functional stakeholders and technical staff to define, build, and implement project plans; develop application enhancements; and maximize the benefits of supported applications.
The Application Support and Development team is responsible for the design, development, implementation, and continuing support of New York Tech’s enterprise business applications, both home-grown and third party. The team also serves as a line of support for business process solutions, troubleshoots issues with business applications, and helps optimize the use of business applications to improve productivity and efficiency across the university's business and academic units.
The Business Analytics and Data Management team is responsible for the design, development, implementation, and support of New York Tech’s business analytics and data management ecosystem. Working with our functional partners across the organization, we use data collection and analytics capabilities to help business units uncover organizational insights, and provide them with infrastructure and support services so that they can make data-informed decisions.
While IT Project Management is technically not a separate team or function solely sourced from within Enterprise Applications and Decision Support Systems, much of this work is centered within this department, including business process re-engineering leadership as well as functional and technical support to users of the university’s enterprise applications and decision support systems—especially project management support and business process improvement associated with implementation of new application services. By their very nature, the team constantly scans, researches, and learns about new and pioneering technology to best position the university strategically.
Enterprise IT Architecture and Security
The Enterprise IT Architecture and Security Department comprises three groups: Systems and Networking, Endpoint Solutions, and Telecommunications. Together, these teams are responsible for the engineering, implementation, and maintenance of enterprise servers and storage, network services, communication systems, internet connectivity, security infrastructure, and endpoint technologies. Much of the work done in the department is invisible to members of the community; but is used daily by everyone on and off campus.
Systems and Networking ensures the availability, integrity, and security of all data centers, hosted and cloud-based services, network connectivity, and secure access for all campuses.
Endpoint Solutions is responsible for supporting the infrastructure required to centrally manage and support the end-user technology ecosystem our community requires. These solutions include the delivery of software, endpoint security, operating system patching, system configuration, automated collection of hardware/software inventory, POS devices, and physical/mobile access solutions.
Telecommunications coordinates global connectivity needs and supports the telecommunication infrastructure that enables enterprise level collaboration tools for the university.
Mobile and Web Development
Mobile and Web Development Services is responsible for mobile and web application development that supports New York Tech’s academic and administrative needs. This includes responsibility for the web content management system for centrally managed websites, various custom web applications, the my.nyit.edu portal, and the deployment of mobile applications.
Office of the VP and CIO
The Office of the Vice President for IT and CIO serves as the central coordinating body for enterprise-level IT initiatives at the university, including high-level, long-term organizational goals, strategic direction, IT governance, and performance/process management. The office also addresses day-to-day operational concerns such as resource management, project management, cybersecurity, and strategy alignment. Transparency and inclusion in decision making, planning, budgeting, and day-to-day operations are core to the work and interactions of the various teams that make up Information Technology Services.
