We serve as a conduit between client needs and IT delivery for change, integration and optimization of services by bringing forward client needs, helping to define stakeholders, and presenting potential opportunities from the UTD client perspective. We can also serve to facilitate projects for UTD client IT projects and assist by analyzing current processes to look for improvement.
