Projects and initiatives
The Project Delivery and Development team provide comprehensive end-to-end support for College initiatives to integrate information technology into teaching, research and support services.
The team includes:
- Business Analysts who carry out analysis of requirements and processes, structure information and design efficient information systems.
- Developers to build or customise information systems to the required specifications.
- Project, Portfolio and Programme Managers to manage reliable delivery of projects for Education, Research, Business Support and Infrastructure Service Lines with involvement of College representatives, staff and students.
- The Project Support Office (PSO) who provide day to day support and assist with the implementation of agreed standards for running projects.
We currently have 52 projects in delivery.
These are some of the key projects being managed by ICT at Imperial College London.
Pre-Award Research Management System (PARMS) Replacement
Research Office and ICT are working on replacing the current pre-award system, InfoEd, as it is a legacy system reliant on old platforms and is becoming increasingly difficult to support. This application currently facilitates over £1.6 billion worth of grant and contract applications so ensuring this service is available in its best form going forward is essential. We are moving to a Software as a Service option provided by Worktribe which should provide the College with a future- proofed module to build the future of our research management applications.
