Planning & Information Resources Management: The Case for Combining University Academic & Administrative Computing.
Alaska Univ., Fairbanks.
The report outlines how the University of Alaska (Fairbanks) could move toward institutionalizing a chief information officer and merge campus academic and administrative information systems. The chief information officer would have such responsibilities as strategic planning participation, information systems planning, development of institutional information policy, management of the institution's information resources, and development of new information system capabilities. A major outcome would be the linking of tactical and operational planning activities of information systems with the institution's overall strategic processes. The report discusses: (1) the development of academic computing, library computing, and administrative computing services; (2) the current status of telecommunications and local area networks, institutional research and data reporting, data administration, and statewide administration; (3) needs not currently being met, the evolution of technology, and planning and administrative opportunities; and (4) proposed changes in the areas of office administration, data administration, support services, institutional research and data reporting services, computer applications systems services, and computer center operations and network services. Includes seven references. (DB)
