Peter Brodersen ordered a new computer via the UCPH IT department and was notified that the delivery time was 5½ weeks. Not good enough, he says: Researchers work under time pressure. But according to the deputy director of IT, it cannot be done any faster, as UCPH has opted not to keep Apple computers in stock.
UCPH does not monitor employees’ use of the web. However, data about people's behaviour on the internet is automatically saved, and if you get a virus, you can be contacted by the IT department.
