Information technology at Duke University and Duke University Health System is managed by the central IT organizations (Office of Information Technology, OIT and Duke Health Technology Solutions, DHTS) and departmental IT organizations. Campus IT governance is a collaboration among these groups. See a list of all IT groups on campus. Several specialized groups meet regularly to discuss how technology changes and impacts the Duke community.
(DHTS manages IT for the Health System. For information about Maestro, Haiku or Spok, visit the knowledge-base (NetID required).)
IT Advisory Council (ITAC)
The IT Advisory Council meets twice monthly to discuss projects that impact operations campus-wide. The group consists of IT leaders, operations leadership, students, and faculty.
The Extended Staff group consists of IT directors from schools and organizations across campus. The group meets monthly to discuss ongoing campus technology projects, new technology initiatives and change management processes.
The IT Council is a small group of IT directors, faculty and staff that advises on new and innovative uses of technology on campus.
Technology Architecture Group (TAG)
The Technology Architecture Group (TAG) works with OIT leadership and leading technologists across the university to track emerging technologies and determine which meet our needs, review major technology decisions as they affect overall IT architecture, champion the appropriate use of technology, and advise the university as it seeks to implement and integrate technologies. TAG responds to direct requests from OIT senior leadership to work on significant technical issues, and it examines large projects at various stages of the project lifecycle to offer advice and identify connections with other initiatives. If you need their advisement, feel free to contact TAG directly.
EndPoint@Duke Steering Committee
Duke's IT staff utilize a number of endpoint management services to support efficient maintenance of computing devices (laptops, desktops, workstations, tablets, and smart phones), including BigFix, Casper and Microsoft SCCM, among others. These management services are available to all IT support groups at Duke. EndPoint@DUKE is the representative body for the technical and managerial oversight for the various endpoint management services at Duke. Membership includes any staff within the Duke community who is using or wishes to use the community-supported management services (EndPoint community). A steering committee has been established to work with the EndPoint community to set priorities, policies, and address resource requirements.
Membership and leadership of EndPoint@Duke is explicitly not extended to those who are not currently employed by Duke University, unless otherwise unanimously agreed to by the steering committee, in consultation with the endpoint community.
