Supporting the information lifecycle
Griffith manages information assets intelligently to promote productivity and security for our broad community. Our solutions and services support staff to protect information, improve collaboration, and drive innovation and growth.
Effective and innovative management helps build the strategic value of the University's information.
Goals of our services:
- increased productivity: enabling staff to focus on value add activities
- reduced costs: through storage, information consolidation and optimised content-based workflows replacing manual processes
- reduced time opportunity costs: enabling potential students, academics, researchers, support staff and alumni to access and reuse knowledge
- improved people networks: enabling more effective virtual team working to continually extend the corporate knowledge base and memory
- reduced information security risk: our usable tools lead to less ‘under the radar’ working practices and reduced risk of data loss
- identifying one source of truth: for improved insight and decision making
