Maximizing Value in a Time of Change
Brought to you in collaboration with NACUBO.
More than 120 people joined us for the inaugural EDUCAUSE/NACUBO Administrative IT Summit, Maximizing Value in a Time of Change.
Leaders from higher education IT and business operations were represented and collaboratively assessed the challenges and opportunities of this period in administrative IT. A meeting summary will be published in July. Topics explored in Chicago included:

- Understanding the Potential and the Pitfalls of Business Process Reengineering (BPR)
- Developing Effective Sourcing Strategies
Academic Leadership in a Digital Age
It is hard to pick up a newspaper these days without reading yet another critique of higher education. Many predict the end of traditional higher education as we know it. This opening session explored the pressures on the traditional business model, what we can reasonably expect from online initiatives, and how we might address the challenges facing higher education today.
Friday Panel Session
We Built, We Bought, We Shared: The Costs of Administrative
Service Systems vs. the Academic Mission
This panel discussed lessons learned from alternative approaches to managing ERP implementation costs, including building your own in the modern era, buying and implementing in smarter ways, implementing SaaS alternatives, and joining a consortium that shares processes and software development. The panel also addressed the value of minimizing the costs of administrative systems so our institutions can invest in our core missions—teaching and learning, service, and research.
