Important Notes

The IT Service Inventory was collected in Fall 2018 from 24 contacts across UW-Madison. Each contact submitted data via a collection form that listed the IT Services that were provided for their School, College, Institute or Division. This inventory represents services provided to internal or external customers related to technology (Ex. Help Desk or End point computing). The IT services are a snapshot as of November 2018 and do not reflect calendar or fiscal periods. Data was manually collected in spreadsheet form and was not generated from an inventory system.

Some IT service providers associated their particular service with more than one primary service category. Each primary category can be mapped to an ECAR-associated (Educause Center for Analysis and Research) category for comparison with others in higher education. For more information about ECAR see the following website:
