Notes: The Changing Fabric of Higher Education - discussion session @ the Southwest Regional 2010

EDUCAUSE Southwest Regional Conference 2010 Discussion Session

The Changing Fabric of Higher Education: What Lies Ahead?

Thursday, February 18, 2010

Facilitators: Edward Kelty, Rio Salado College; Diane Butler, Rice University. 

Notes: David McGuire, University of New Mexico.

Cloud computing – who has outsourced and why? Benefits/detriments?

Some have outsourced student email; one has outsourced knowledge mgmt, customer intake

Email most common outsourced application, though not for faculty/staff email.

Typical cloud target: Big applications that don’t change often and have lower security requirements (not ERP or research – provider may be off-shore with different laws or security issues)

Credibility:

With budget cuts, more decision-making must be data-driven
