The Necessity for Adopting a Strategic Vision for Technology
There are increasing pressures on higher education institutions to contain cost. In the past decade, we endured the 2008 financial crisis, then again in 2015 our endowments saw low or negative returns, and now with Brexit, we are all waiting to see the long-term impact on the markets. The conversations among CIOs have often turned to the perception that IT departments often have insufficient resources to keep up with technology on their campuses. Higher education is not known for canceling or sun setting services, be it on the administrative or academic side. The economic downturns (and the ensuing financial issues they created) gave IT the perfect opportunity to re-evaluate workflows, processes, and services.
