Report from Computing Executive Group
The aim is to categorise support activities across Universities as part of the 'Service Excellence' program. Alastair has gathered figures for the 15/16 Academic year and mapped them to the list of categories provided. This will continue for the next 4 years but there will need to be further discussion to standardise the interpretation of the categories as Schools may currently interpret them differently.
Ian asked if there was any update on the network review being carried out by the University. Alastair noted that there was nothing concrete to report. It is hoped, however, that our 'core' switches will be replaced as part of this project.
