Technology Governance

What is Technology Governance?

Technology Governance is an integrated structure that defines accountability for governance and identifies all of the processes and controls required to align technology solutions with business strategies. It is used to assess all technology investment by the University and is applied to strategic initiatives as well as incremental change, the delivery of change and the operation of existing technology services.

Why is Technology Governance important?

The University needs a way to make sure that technology sustains ECU strategies and goals. It enables the right people with the right skills and experience to make key technology decisions. It is a well-defined approach to strategic planning, project management and service provision of technology to the University.

When is Technology Governance applied?

Technology Governance is applied across all areas of ECU from new initiatives through to changes to existing services and on to how services are delivered. The Strategic Technology Governance process in particular defines the decision-making rights and control that take place between the business initiative and the decision to fund and subsequently implement the initiative. This process is initiated as soon as a concept brief is submitted.
