Podcast: Lois Brooks on Meeting the Challenge: The 21st-Century IT Organization

In a dynamic landscape of imaginative academics, evolving technology, heightened expectations, and economic realities, the IT organization is challenged to keep pace. In this keynote address from the NERCOMP 2011 Conference, Lois Brooks, Vice Provost for Information Services at Oregon State University, discusses how IT leaders at all levels of the organization must make choices that foster scholarship without continually escalating costs. Whether your organization chooses to focus on a strong service profile, on emerging programs, or on a robust infrastructure, one thing is certain: the IT leader of the future needs new strategies to successfully meet the challenges ahead.
