  • 12/11/09 Here the ISSG has completed its work & handed over to the IMSG. I think it’s important that we talk about Information Management rather than Strategy as I see a key role of this group as owning the whole space & therefore reviewing/monitoring how we’re doing in terms of managing information in a way that supports the strategy, management & operation of the organisation. To be honest, you could just as well talk about Process as Information management, but I think we’re best coming at it from the information end. IMSG membership? Chair – unknown! The ISA Project could certainly handover to it, & again the usual CIS suspects should definitely be there. Further expanding the monitoring idea – the group would receive periodic reports from ITSG & SDPB on service and programme/project delivery and would review performance in these areas. I see the ITSG very much as being responsible for the ICT service (& the kind of service KPIs Deloittes have talked about could come in here), & ITIL could be useful here, & SDPB as being responsible for development, already following the Programme Management approach. Probably as discussed meet a couple of times a year. Still see the investment/prioritisation bit as being shared between ITSG (service investment) and SDPB (development investment) – the lines will be blurred but roughly that. & last point – personally don’t see the dependence on the CIS leadership as the glue in all this as a problem – might be a bit messy, but bound to come down to people anyway, & I think effort to produce a ‘perfect’ solution would be effort wasted – will always be messy anyway.

    5. 5. Information Principles* Information is a valuable shared institutional resource and must be managed appropriately throughout its lifetime. Information shall be available to those who need it (ideally ‘anytime, anywhere, and anyhow’) subject to security and acceptable use policies. University information must be trustworthy (relevant, accurate, timely, secure) All members of the University community are personally responsible for managing the information they create and use. Information management adds value to the University community. The status of information sources (e.g. definitive/primary, derived/secondary) must be clearly defined and only definitive/primary sources updated. Information management must comply with external statutory and regulatory requirements. Information management principles inform IT principles. There is a common vocabulary and data definition. The University is responsible for assisting staff to work in the most effective ways possible.
