IQ organizationally joining ITS

Dear FAS colleagues,

As part of our ongoing efforts to further operationalize the FAS core values of stewardship, teamwork and service, I am writing to share that Information Quest (IQ) is organizationally joining Information Technology Services (ITS) effective today. Director David Pavkovic will report to Assistant Vice President Trice Humpert.

IQ’s specialization in IT service delivery for data warehousing and business intelligence best fits under the umbrella of ITS as we streamline services to further support our campus community and the university’s academic and research mission. IQ and ITS have particular synergies related to enterprise architecture, operational best practices and IT service delivery. Combining the groups allows the teams to leverage these synergies in reporting and visualizations, data analytics, data development, security, and mainframe data replication while providing expertise as we modernize our applications and IT infrastructure.  

This integration will also further advance our efforts around institutional data management. IQ and ITS will continue to play an important role while our broader strategy evolves in support of making data more easily and widely accessible.

This is an exciting step as we further our collaborative efforts to support our campus community.

Thank you for all you do,

Darrell Bazzell
