Monthly Conference Call

Unless otherwise noted, ITAG conference calls are held 10:00-11:00 on the first Friday of every month.

Mission Statement

Foundation for Collaboration on Technology Enabled UC Solutions, Pillar II - Establish the enterprise architecture and technology infrastructure necessary to promote and support interoperability and sharing of IT solutions among and between campuses.

The Information Technology Architecture Group (ITAG) facilitates knowledge sharing and collaboration across the UC campuses. We work in concert with the UC Information Technology Services (ITS) Enterprise Architecture (EA) Team, to inform and enable reuse of the UC EA Body of Knowledge (EABoK), and support campus implementations of UC-wide initiatives. ITAG is a working sub-committee of the UC Information Technology Leadership Council (ITLC), and the ITLC establishes our priorities and directions, and resolves questions regarding scope, strategy, and/or policy.

Our primary goals are to:

  • Formally address architecture and middleware issues. This will include discussing and facilitating the implementation of practices, policies, and tools relating to architecture, middleware, and interoperability, especially supporting UCPath.
  • Commit to at least 4 to 8 hours a week to addressing these architecture and middleware issues.
  • Act as a conduit and/or communications resource to appropriate stakeholders and the broader campus communities to ensure that decisions and approaches are communicated / promulgated.
  • Share best practices and promote discussion of common opportunities and challenges, and act on ITLC requested initiatives as appropriate.

  1. Regarding request priorities: my responses are based on my current understanding of UCLA campus' relative project priorities. Pending discussion with our EA Oversight committee, I may amend my response.
