This talk will unpack the economic, political, technology, and cultural issues that have forced our institutions to reexamine some of our most fundamental assumptions about the way higher education operates. From the explosion of consumer technology to the expansion of above-campus services to the need for better analytics and data-driven decision making to simplified business processes, our technology leaders play a pivotal role in enabling the evolution of the academy: they're at the forefront of the use of technology in any enterprise, not just in higher ed.
