FROM DR. PIERCE CANTRELL

We concluded a notable year filled with goals achieved and obstacles surmounted. We successfully completed or made significant progress on key projects that speed access to technology resources and upgraded services to meet the needs of a growing university population. Our achievements have built a solid base for future progress, positioning us to enhance resources to strengthen research, teaching and collaboration. Information technology at The Texas A&M System is undergoing a comprehensive assessment to find ways to improve service efficiency and effectiveness. The next year and beyond will see us engaging in new approaches to solve problems through IT. This organization is well suited to meet these challenges, as we provide maximum value while serving the mission of the university.

Thank you for taking time to review our progress in this annual report. The dedicated professionals at Texas A&M IT, along with our partners at the university and throughout the A&M System, are responsible for the many successes highlighted here. I encourage you to share your questions or comments with me and the members of our team as we continue to build an outstanding IT environment for our university.
