The Office of the CIO strives to enrich the BYU environment through the application of information technology (IT) principles, practices, and systems. We endeavor to support the institutional mission by helping students, staff, and faculty reach their full potential and making BYU more inspiring, comfortable, productive, and safe.
Our vision is to provide legendary service and value hallmarked by "finished" products. Our current emphasis is the creation of an environment based on service oriented architecture (SOA) principles. We currently run a web services infrastructure that provides the entire campus with the tools necessary to expose, run, and monitor services. Furthermore, we are moving towards a DevOps application development and maintenance model. With increasing transparency throughout the development process, projects and issues will be completed or resolved quickly and economically by consistent communication and automation throughout each project lifecycle.
It has long been our dream to make IT more effective by involving others in its creation. Through the creation of services we are not hoping that "if we build it they will come", but rather "they will come and help build it". I invite you to join us in this exciting effort!
