Message from the CIO
Technology touches nearly every aspect of our daily interactions, notably at UBC, where it enables us to solve complex research problems, empower students and alumni, or quickly extract 10,000 GB of data within a few seconds.
Every year we take time to pause and reflect on the impact that UBC Information Technology (UBC IT) has made in the community. I am pleased to share the 2014/2015 UBC IT Annual Report, which provides a look into some of the highlights from the past fiscal year and celebrates the partnerships that have led to a greater level of collaboration and innovation in our community.
I invite you to read through the stories below that provide a glimpse into the breadth of the work that is completed by this department to help further UBC's goals for teaching and research, as well as working together with the UBC community to ensure a sustainable, secure infrastructure.
The next year and beyond will see us continuing to evolve our services, whether it is through enriching learning experiences, supporting exciting research initiatives, or creating awareness about information security on campus.
Our community is full of inspiring leaders and experts who push us to discover new and advanced technologies to support big ideas in the higher education sector. Given the accelerating pace of advancement in technology, we strive to continue to deliver the IT solutions and services to enable everyone at the university to pursue their best work – pushing the boundaries of the digital age further than ever before.
