Meeting Room 201C
Eastern Time

This discussion will focus on buy-side concerns for higher education IT. As we (the buy-side) remain highly fragmented and the sell-side aggregates/consolidates, we will be subjected to capital owners rightly pursuing strategies to maximize their interests. Attend this session for a productive conversation regarding how our collective behaviors and money can rebalance the economic chessboard for this decade.

What needs to change? How about how we procure... #e11_sess160 #edu11

We are the highest cost of sales vertical for our vendors. We need to change as much as our vendors do. #e11_sess160 #edu11

RT @geofcorb: We get the markets we deserve. We are bad customers. #e11_sess160 #edu11

The RFP process is deeply flawed. Why do we let vendors tell us how they want to sell? Why not assert how we want to buy? #e11_sess160

A lot of our colleagues do not know how to procure open source software. #e11_sess160 #edu11

Information aggregation: a powerful tool. #e11_sess160 #edu11

Aussies share all contracts and agreements and don't do NDAs. More lessons learned from down under. #e11_sess160 #edu11

Are our libraries doing a better job at demand aggregation and collaboration than our IT shops? #e11_sess160 #edu11

Surprised that it took over 30 minutes for the first explicit Sakai reference! #e11_sess160 #edu11

... And then Kuali. Had to see that coming. #e11_sess160 #edu11

We have lost many CIOs and leaders from the CIO list with all the chatter. Do we need a "chessboard" (strategic) list? #e11_sess160 #edu11
