Effective Technology Solutions

Welcome from the CTO

The goal of this website is to share information and engage directly with students, faculty and staff about emergent and established standards, designs and IT architectures at UC Berkeley. We want to help make the University as effective, efficient and competitive as it can be and reduce friction for people trying to solve problems with technology. 

Of course this is Berkeley, and simplistic, one-size-fits-all approaches do not always work. As the CTO, I am focused on helping us navigate the complexity, simplifying where possible, and promoting easier, faster and cheaper solutions to the challenges we face as an institution. Any reasonable approach to this starts by taking the time to understand your goals, pain points, and challenges. We aim to cultivate a shared vision and architectural standards that support and enable the University’s strategic goals.
