Charge (Updated October 2015)

DRAFT - CTG – Collaborative Tools Group Charge Revision

The UC Collaborative Technology Group (CTG) is a working group of the ITLC.  The CTG’s mission is to enhance, support, and promote the UC IT staff community's ability to collaborate using innovative technology solutions.  The CTG aims to provide the 7000 strong community with the opportunity to crowdsource and form organic teams around new ideas and projects allowing the UC to better collectively meet the “Next” set of challenges that we will face as institutions and as a system.  The goal of the CTG is to create a “collaborative movement” that encourages staff to endeavor to find and seek others across the system working on similar issues making cross campus collaboration more natural for the UC IT community

The CTG will work to increase the UC IT community’s frequency of interaction by leveraging both individual and campus-wide gamification allowing for measurable outcomes based upon levels of sharing and participation. Included in this effort is providing more tangible recognition of collaborative participation and volunteerism through new forms of ITLC and other sponsored digital credentials.  Further, the CTG would like to plan and coordinate additional IT collaboration events, hackathons, Ted Talks as well as innovative training programs to be held throughout the year promoting shared approaches and alignment with future and impending challenges.  Through the CTG’s initiatives, it will endeavor to increase the sharing and communication of ideas and projects that support the University's mission of teaching, research and service, now and into the “Next” phase of the UC.

As part of this mission, the CTG also functions as the UC Next Ideation platform Steering Committee, directing the development of the UC Next Ideation and Collaboration Platform.  UC Next ( the system is an IT crowd sourced environment aimed directly at bringing about more UC System collaboration around innovative ideas and projects.  UC Next provides campus engagement meters, events, and groups in addition to making digital badge awards (i.e. Sautter badges) available.  UC Next the platform is a system wide collaboration of the IT community and hopes to inspire camaraderie towards our shared UC Mission of excellence in Education, Research and Service.

The CTG also functions as an umbrella for two subgroups including the UC Mobile Collaboration Group and the UC ServiceNow Group:

The UC Mobile Collaborative Group (MCG) meets monthly to discuss mobile frameworks, strategies and how we can continue to share and collaborate in the Mobile space.  The work of the CTG MCG subcommittee in this area has several areas of focus: Frameworks and Optimization for the Mobile Web, Native Mobile approaches and governance and CASA the Community App Sharing Architecture open standard from IMS Global.  Additionally, the group acts as an advisory board for the “Mobility and The Modern Web Conference” located at  

The Service Now group facilitated dialog among UC campuses related to ServiceNow implementations. The CTG moved to change the name and charge of this group to the Service Management group which would focus on system-wide ITSM process design and strategy instead of a specific technology used for ITSM.  CTG seeks ITLC advice on the creation of a standing service management committee.
