UB Information Technology recently lost a talented leader in Saira Hasnain. Saira has taken an opportunity in Florida closer to family and we wish her the best of luck in her new adventures.
As most of the campus knows, Saira created and lead a finely tuned team, Enterprise Infrastructure Services, which handles IT systems and operations for UB. Thanks to her expertise and guidance, we were fortunate to have our systems run reliably.
Saira was also key to the recent implementation of the modern, secure cloud-based UBbox file storage and sharing solution, which members of our campus community are already finding useful.
As we look to the future, UBIT must also look at the current IT environment and ensure that we grow to meet the changing goals and objectives of the university. Our responsibility is to ensure that as technology changes so rapidly, UBIT can optimize it to achieve the university’s mission.
Over the next few months, I’ll look forward to hearing from our IT staff and constituents across the university to guarantee that our IT organization continues to position itself to meet UB’s goals.
Please reach out to me if you have any thoughts or suggestions as we move forward. It is only by listening to your needs that we can appropriately focus our efforts and shape progress going forward.
J. Brice Bible is the Vice President and Chief Information Officer (VPCIO) for UB. UBIT iis a service division at UB that provides enterprise technology leadership and guidance.
