Web Technologies and Infrastructure Subcommittee


The Web Technologies and Infrastructure (WTI) Subcommittee oversees central Web technologies and infrastructure as well as provides best practices and guidelines for the campus community. The WTI Subcommittee reports to the Architectural and Infrastructure Committee (AIC).

The WTI Subcommittee is charged with identifying and describing common needs across campus for Web publishing, hosting and technical support; developing and maintaining a set of guiding technology principles for the central Web hosting infrastructure; and advising on the strategic assessment to drive the evolution and advancement of enterprise-scale Web technologies and hosting services.
