Wow!  I thought Laura was a great presenter and leader.  Her message and direction were very clear. 

So, a couple of thoughts I would like to add:

   -  It helps to have a goal for the whole university to drive out costs beyond the budget constraints.  Everyone is expected to pitch in.  So, Laura and her team have gotten the support from top leadership of the university.

   -  I agree with the simple pictures.  Service and funding strategy and flipping the types of IT services are areas we try to explain to our customers, but we don't have pictures to make it clear.

    -  The methodology for commoditizing would be interesting to explore further.  How do they find all the costs when things are so decentralized?  Are the schools and departments willing to share their data on costs?

I share much of the take a ways others have shared as well especially that Laura was great presenter.

She seemed really connected to and passionate about the NextGen Initiative, and really expressed how EA is related and important.

It is great to have an executive understand and promote these types of endeavors.

I put a recap up on the ITANA wiki, with a link to Laura's slides.

Excellent and thanks Chris.   

We will fold the minutes into this page too when they are published.
