IS Technology Study Findings and Recommendations.
North Carolina Community Coll. System, Raleigh.
This report presents the findings and recommendations of an Information Technology Study Team, which was appointed in July 1995 to develop a technology strategy for the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) Office. After reviewing the results of staff surveys and input from the college presidents, and conducting a series of interviews, the study team identified the strengths and constraints of the system's approach to information technology. Based on this assessment, it developed a vision for the future, made a number of recommendations, and devised an implementation plan. The report describes the background information that led to the development of the recommendations, including the current environment of information management systems, and the strengths and constraints faced by NCCCS in planning, developing, and implementing technology; and presents the resulting vision statement. It then sets forth recommendations, with action steps and expected outcomes, in the areas of planning, holistic approach to technology, data access, administrative systems, and training. A glossary of terms used in the report is also provided. Appended are (1) current systems, which include a chart of administrative systems currently supported by information services; (2) job descriptions and committee charges; (3) surveys with charts and graphs; and (4) tables of cost projections.
