IT Operations Center

Mission: In direct support of the University IT Mission, the IT Operations Center strives to reduce both the duration and impact of outages of systems provided by IT Services. This is done through effective monitoring, timely and high-quality communication and alerting, and consistent tracking of incident progress. ITOC is a conduit through which the IT Services customer is represented with respect to incident prevention, and is a proponent and executor of proactive client communications. ITOC will maintain an effective staffing level, with continual training and improvement, in order to always serve our six priorities effectively.‚Äč

What we do

The IT Operations Center (ITOC) is responsible for 24x7x365 network monitoring and first response, and incident management for all IT Services systems, applications, and the Data Center Building Facilities. The ITOC is also responsible for after-hours operations, remote hands services, network switch replacement, and end-user troubleshooting for various systems and services. The ITOC is also the primary support system for enterprise voice, paging, the operator service platform, and the campus card system. Because the function of this group is to handle incidents and issues, it is also the primary owner and coordinator for the IT Services and Administrative Systems Department Operations Center/Disaster Recovery efforts.

Our priorities

  • network operations, monitoring, and first response
  • unified communications operations
  • communications management
  • system maintenance
  • department Operations Center (disaster recovery and planning)
