Podcast: ERPs and the Academy: The Benefits and the Problems

This hour and sixteen minute podcast features a general session discussion from the EDUCAUSE 2009 Enterprise Information and Technology Conference. The discussion, "ERPs and the Academy: The Benefits and the Problems," is led by:

  • Ted Dodds, CIO and AVP Information Technology, The University of British Columbia
  • Thomas L. Maier, Vice Chancellor for Information and Instructional Technology/CIO, Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia

We have come to depend on ERP systems to run our institutions, but the academy has been reassessing their cost and value as resources have become more constrained. Although ERPs support the academic mission in recruitment, retention, and more, academic leaders are arguing for redirecting more resources to core-mission issues such as instruction and research. This session presents issues to consider when wrestling with ERPs and institutional funding priorities.
