After growth in ICT budgets, projects and staff numbers for two years in a row, all have leveled off for 2012.
Much work was done in 2011 with upgrades to the university’s in-house student management system, data networking, storage and server environments.
Significant projects planned for 2012, include the selection of a replacement package student management system, completion of the network replacement project, with HP equipment replacing Cisco Networks equipment. Massey will also rollout the Microsoft Lync unified communications solution as a replacement of aging Nortel and existing Cisco VoIP solutions, complete the Albany Rittal ‘container’ based disaster recovery facility at Massey’s Albany campus, and further commission the video linked teaching suites between the Manawatu and Albany campuses. This year will also see the delivery of intranet and team sites for collaboration over SharePoint and the first stage of a roll-out of enterprise reporting/business intelligence data structures and toolsets.
“It will transform communications and workplace collaboration, drive value through information management, enable new video linked distance teaching methods, support a move to digitally signed workflow, and improve the customer service experience,” says CIO Clive Martis.

The Evolution and Value of Purpose-Built Backup Appliances
Customers today are still grappling with subpar backup performance as systems outstrip the allotted backup window time. Strategies for data protection and recovery continue to be dictated by aggressive SLAs, rapid recovery, and ease of integration in existing environments. As a result, firms have started to embrace more disk-based data protection technologies, including purpose-built backup appliances (PBBAs) to protect and recover data and applications. This white paper explores the measurable benefits of PBBA systems for customers, with a focus on the increased use and adoption patterns of both integrated and targeted systems.
