Portfolio Management

The portfolio management process guides projects from conception through the stages of governance to realization. IS&T Business Relationship Managers work with Domain Portfolio Managers to manage each domain’s portfolio, reviewing items and coordinating efforts between the domain and IS&T. Portfolio management contributes to the smooth and predictable realization of IT projects by supporting the alignment of business needs with IS&T services. In cooperation with the University community, academic or administrative departments, and domain leadership, projects are realized according to enterprise-wide priority. Key features include:

  • Alignment of business needs with IS&T services
  • Proactive management of requests
  • Alignment of departmental needs with enterprise priorities through governance escalation
  • On-time, on-budget, on-target delivery of projects
