Welcome back to InfobITS, the Information Technology Services (ITS) newsletter. With this issue we are resuming our semesterly publication to bring you news about information technology around the UH system.

ITS is a unique organization within the University of Hawaii. Our work directly supports the University across all areas of learning, teaching, research and administration. And we provide services for both the UH System and the UH Manoa campus.

There are never enough resources to keep up with your growing needs and expectations as we also address more stringent external requirements for increased security and compliance. But as you will see from this edition of InfobITS, there has been a lot happening to improve the quality and availability of the information technology infrastructure and services that support our students, faculty and staff throughout the State.

We're helping UH faculty and staff apply technology to advance the teaching and learning environment for our students. We're providing tools and support to assist scholars in leveraging advanced technologies to take their research to the next level. We're helping find ways to help make "doing business" around the University more effective and more efficient. And we're keeping the underlying infrastructure and support up-to-date to help ensure that services are available whenever and wherever you need them.

We don't do any of this alone. The IT services you enjoy are the result of our collaborations with business offices, academic leaders, faculty and staff from throughout the UH system with whom we work on committees, task forces, projects and plans. We thank all of you for your patience, support and good ideas as we continue to strive to help the University of Hawaii benefit from all that information technologies can do for us.

We hope you enjoy this newsletter and find it useful. And please don't hesitate to let me know what we could be doing to serve you better!

Aloha, David
