Definition of Enterprise

The technology review board has approved the current working definition for an enterprise system.

An enterprise system:

  • can be used by all at the University of Minnesota, including all system campuses and all units—both collegiate and non-collegiate;
  • follows University policies and standards;
  • fits into the University's enterprise architecture; and
  • has been approved by the University's enterprise architect.

The technology for the vast majority of these systems will be managed by the Office of Information Technology (OIT), but some systems may be managed by a non-OIT unit.

Note: Funding is determined as a separate activity and is not pre-determined based on a system's "enterprise" designation. In other words, determination of "enterprise" is independent of funding model.
