ITD Team Structure
Our teams are:
Information Services provides support, maintenance and development of UNE applications, enterprise software and the integrations between these applications.
The Administrative Applications team provides support for more than 20 applications including Finance One , Alesco (HR) , Library, integrations with Callista in conjunction with these administrative areas and the UNE Identity management systems.
The Online and Learning Applications team similarly supports over 20 applications including the Learning Management system Moodle, Course and Unit Catalogue and MyUNE.
These teams are supported by Solutions Architects who provide technical advice and program management on new applications or changes to existing applications to UNE operations.
Many of the UNE core applications including the Callista Student Management System, Finance , HR and Library applications run on Oracle databases hosted at UNE which are supported by the Oracle Database Administration team.
The Student Relationship Management team supports and develops the UNE CRM system which delivers AskUne and communications with current, future and past students.
The Infrastructure Services Group (ISG) manages the Data Centre and Network infrastructure which is used to provide IT services to UNE's students and staff.
The Data Centre team manages over 500 servers (both Windows and Linux operating systems), several hundred terabytes of disk storage, and the infrastructure required to back up that data which is then secured in our off-site storage facility. UNE's unified communications system, Microsoft Lync, is also managed by this group. Other servers provide the infrastructure to support services such as UNE's Oracle Database Management System, Microsoft Exchange email system, and the underlying system that supports UNE's fleet of Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) used for document printing and scanning.
The Network Team manages all aspects of the wired and wireless data networks on all UNE campuses and study centres. This includes the multiple 10 gigabit/s network links between UNE and Sydney, the 1 gigabit/s links to many of UNE's Study Centres dotted around the New England / North West area, and the 1200 wireless access points, each of which provide multi-hundred megabit/s data throughput to support UNE's teaching, learning and research community.
