EDUCAUSE Annual Conference

10/25/16 - 10/28/16
Anaheim, CA

Here are our top takeaways from EDUCAUSE 2016.

  1. In 2017, information security will continue to occupy the top spot in EDUCAUSE’s annual list of the Top 10 IT Issues facing higher education. IT leaders and campus information security professionals are challenged to engage their institutions in meaningful conversations about strategies for reducing IT security risk to an acceptable level.
  2. The best time to establish a data governance model was 10 years ago – the next best time is today. There is no technology solution that can provide institutions the ability to make data-driven decisions without first establishing data standards and governance.
  3. New ERP products for higher education are evolving rapidly and institutions can be challenged by system selection. System selection, acquisition, and implementation require thoughtful attention to managing change and improving business processes.
  4. A visit to the EdTech Playground and Start-up Alley got us thinking - with the emergence of so many exciting new technologies designed to support teaching and learning, a collaborative and structured approach to selecting the best-fit innovative technologies will go a long way toward ensuring that institutions get the most value for their dollar.
