The IT Workplace main mission is to provide operations and management in a coordinated, cost-effective and stable way, with regard to IT related systems in various areas of activity, both inside and outside of KTH.
The IT department manages and develops KTH's central network, computer workplace, telecommunications, administrative systems and common information systems, as well as KTH's platform for common student software and student computer labs. In addition, the department supports other KTH in computer-related issues.
One of the most comprehensive IT services ITA delivers is KTH common IT workplace. One of the purposes of a standardized platform for the IT workplace is to provide a reliable infrastructure and client environment, where ITA coordinates operation and support alongside the schools' own IT functions. This minimizes duplication, and resource utilization is streamlined at KTH. Another purpose is to facilitate cooperation between undergraduate and administrative staff. Through optimization and resource efficiency, KTH requirements for environmental awareness are also met.
