ITD Team Structure

Our teams are:

Information Services

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, Ascender (HR) and provides integrations via various platforms.

The Online and Learning Applications team similarly supports over 20 applications including the Student Management System (Callista), 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 Student Management System, Finance, and HR run on Oracle databases hosted at UNE which are supported by the Oracle Database Administration team.

Cloud Infrastructure Services

The Infrastructure Services Group (ISG) manages all of UNE’s Data Centres as well as the Network infrastructure which provides access to the vast majority of IT services to UNE's students and staff.

The Data Centre team manages over 700 servers (both Windows and Linux operating systems), several petabytes of disk storage, and the infrastructure required to back up that data which is then secured in an alternate off-site location.  UNE's unified communications system, Microsoft Skype for Business, is also managed by this group, as well as the email filtering system that removes the 90% of all incoming email that is confirmed as being harmful or SPAM. The team also provides the hosting support for UNE's Oracle Database Management system, Microsoft Exchange email system, Identity Management system and the underlying systems supporting 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 10Gbps AARNet network links between UNE and Sydney, the 1Gbps links to many of UNE's Study Centres dotted around the New England / North West area, and the 1,200 wireless access points, which provide high-speed wireless data coverage to support UNE's teaching, learning and research communities. The team also manages the new network fabric recently installed to connect to our new data centres in Sydney, and also the firewalls that protect UNE from ever-evolving internet-based cyber threats, all without compromising application performance.
