Welcome Message from our CIO
Welcome to the DGIT website. An evolving hub of communication about efforts to implement and advance digital technologies in DGSOM, this site is a primary method for sharing news and announcements, information about services offered and how to get them, and an online means of support (we also encourage you to call us or visit the IT Connect walk-up). Over time, we will continue to expand the services and information offered through this site, as well as deliver rich content describing our projects, and other efforts to deliver institutionally significant technologies. We strive to be transparent, communicative, and collaborative, and we are excited to launch this critical avenue for engagement with the UCLA community.
DGIT is in its early stages, and as we lay the foundation for a transformational and lasting organization, we are attentive to the rapid evolution that governs information technology. With that in mind, we have taken on many of the attributes of a startup. We continuously assess and hone our approach to product design, organizational structure, and service delivery. We seek intimate engagement with customers and iterative, collaborative development processes. We are not afraid to think big or make significant change, and we embrace modern approaches and emerging technologies. It is startling to note, then, amidst our efforts to stay ahead of the curve, how websites – a 25-year-old technology – still underpin today’s communication platforms. Lacking a singular home for outreach has only increased that realization, and we feel elated not simply to launch this critical communication hub, but also, via its creation, to declare our existence to the community we serve. We are delighted to have you here, and to be your partner going forward.
Thank you so much for taking a moment to visit. We would love your feedback. Please send any questions or comments to dgsomCIO@mednet.ucla.edu, and welcome again to our new site.
