Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Program Team
University Services has initiated an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Program to enable the strategic management of assets, resources, and technology through process and systems redesign. We will leverage the best of what already works here at the U along with leading industry practices to help shape our future asset management program across all U of M campuses.
The Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Program is being developed to enable the strategic management of assets (facilities, equipment, land, space, leases), resources, and technology through process and systems redesign. We will leverage the best of what already works here at the U along with leading industry practices to help shape our future asset management program across all U of M campuses.
EAM Program Guiding Principles
Enterprise architecture guiding principles must be considered for all academic and administrative technology decisions for the University of Minnesota system. These principles should be considered for University research and non-enterprise technology decisions as well. They foster solutions that are simple and open while promoting compliance with required standards. Although the guiding principles are not mandated policies, they are meant to be considered and applied to all collegiate and non-collegiate technology decisions.
1. Align Across the University - Efforts should be coordinated across stakeholder and IT groups to minimize redundancy and be more cost and resource efficient.
2. Seek Stability and Efficiency - Solutions should be appropriately engineered to meet the business requirements to minimize cost and maximize value. Stability, scalability, and efficiency must be at the foundation of the design and implementation of these solutions.
3. Strive for Simplicity and out of the box adoption. Preference for fiscal responsibility and transparency in design. The simplicity principles promote transparency in design and process, enabling supportable systems and services. Requests to change base code will be supported by a business case.
4. Ensure Regulatory Compliance - Solutions or practices are compliant with regulatory requirements and industry best practices. The compliance principles require that solutions or practices meet legal, regulatory, and safety requirements and security standards.
