Advising & Consulting
Advising & Consulting advises academic and administrative departments on how to best use central information technology solutions to achieve their business objectives. This service identifies strategic opportunities, defines potential solutions, and establishes relationships with campus partners to support new or changed technology related business needs.
Business Analysis (BA) is the process in which your business needs are translated into technical requests. We build your data model, document business processes, report on findings, and help ensure the delivered product meets your individual requirements. Our solutions include a systems development component and may also incorporate process improvement, organizational change, strategic planning, and policy development. BA services can be requested as part of projects or independent initiatives.
From replenishing white board markers and microphone batteries to training faculty on classroom technology, the same classroom support available for university classrooms can be made available to your departmentally-managed classrooms. With our 5-minute target resolution for in-class technology challenges, our Classroom Support Team will work tirelessly to ensure your classroom technology needs have been met.
Desktop & Mobile Computing
The day-to-day technology support of our faculty and staff is central to our service. Desktop and Mobile Computing is your on-site support option for daily challenges, maintenance, setup of new devices, and even concierge-style support to help guide you to additional services and offerings as needed. We perform an array of tasks, such as setting up new hardware, installing software, troubleshooting incidents, and providing encryption and anti-virus solutions.
From simple websites to advanced web-based solutions for your business needs, the UTO can assist with the whole lifecycle of your project from inception, to requirements gathering, project initiation and closeout, and maintenance & support.

User Research helps improve user experiences through the analysis of real users interacting with products. Our services are grounded in behavioral observations which generate actionable findings about aspects of your product that meet user expectations as well as areas that require refinement.
Our services allow organizations to validate their assumptions at any stage of the design and development process, from low fidelity sketches and wireframes to live websites and applications. We tailor each research project to reflect unique goals and timelines. We can help establish benchmark and recurring KPI (Key Progress Indicators) to measure improvement.
