Establishment of the Enterprise Systems Committee

Executive Memorandum 97-001

February 17, 1997

From: Manuel A. Esteban, President

Subject: Establishment of the Enterprise Systems Committee

ENTERPRISE SYSTEMS COMMITTEE

The Target 2000 Technology Team was established in fall 1995 as a continuation of the Technology Sub-Group of the 1994 President's Task Force on the Future. This Team is a campuswide group of faculty, staff, and students charged with overall planning and implementation of technology in support of the Strategic Plan.

As a next step in the process of refining our technology path, we will develop a complementary structure to deal specifically with "enterprise-wide" computing issues. "Enterprise" is the current term in use which applies to computing systems with campuswide impact and clientele, such as major administrative computing systems, email, human resources, student systems, and financial systems that are traditionally mainframe-based and typically have large cost and service implications.

In collaboration with the Target 2000 Technology Team, the Enterprise Systems Committee will provide advice and consultation to Information Resources and Cabinet on enterprise-wide computing issues. The existing Information Systems Administrative Committee (ISAC) established by EM 83-017 is abolished. Similar to the Target 2000 Team, the Enterprise Systems Committee will report to the Vice Provost for Information Resources, who will serve as its chair.

The Enterprise Systems Committee will consist of the following individuals or their representatives:
