(these definitions come from an UNOFFICIAL Usenet posting from John
Norstad of AT in one of the nwu.it groups or its predecessors, dated
circa 4/12/96. They are paraphrased slightly.)
IST, or IT: the Information Technologies organization of which the groups
below are a part.
NSG: Network Services Group -- This group manages the fiber optic
backbone and backbond Cisco routers, 10BaseT hubs, and other network
electronics, and the modem pool. It also manages departmental LANs,
departmental NUNet connections, and the residential hall network
hardware. Basically NSG handles the network "infrastructure."
TSS: Technology Support Services. End-user support, including the
Information Center, consulting, documentation, and training.
AT: Academic Technologies. This group includes the lab management
group, the Instructional Technology Group, and the Network
Application Development Group (Norstad's own).
UMS: University Management Systems. Administrative computing, budget,
payroll, personnel, student records, etc.
UCC: University Computing Center. Operations and system management.
These folks keep the mainframes and the big UNIX servers running.
