The Systems Team provides broad oversight and leadership for technologies used by Alliance programs, teams and members. As experts for the consortium, the team investigates new solutions, oversees their implementation, and continually assesses existing systems against emerging needs and technological change to ensure agility and achieve improved functionality, efficiency, and interoperability. The team also monitors vendor compliance with Service Level Agreements and general performance of customer support.
The Systems Team began its work in spring 2015, following on the work of the Shared ILS implementation-era Systems Working Group. The team has worked on a number of tasks, including management of Alliance participation in the first-ever Alma enhancements process led by the Ex Libris product user groups and leading a set of systems-related presentations at the Alliance's 2015 Summer Meeting.
