System administration model


Within the University, there is a large number of systems dedicated to providing support in the implementation of education, research and support activities. The aim of system administration is to take a structured approach to ensuring that the systems benefit the organisation and run as cost-effectively as possible.

How the University works with support systems

The system administration model provides a common picture of how system administration is run so as to generate recognition and reduce dependence on individuals.

The system owner usually gets help from a system administrator well-informed about the demands that the system is to meet, how they work and what needs to be developed. Here, a collaboration is in place with LDC and external system providers who have detailed knowledge of the systems’ technical structure.

System administration plan

Every year, the system administrator draws up a system administration plan. Among other things, this plan specifies what the system is for, which target groups and working methods it supports, what other systems the system needs to exchange information with (integrations), how the system is organised, what is to be done in the short and long term and a budget for the system.

The plans are documented in the administration plan service LuSyFer.

For authorisation to access the system, please contact servicedesk [at] lu [dot] se
