Exploring the Shift from Technologies to Services

Get ready for a new, more service-centric future at the EDUCAUSE/NACUBO Enterprise IT Summit. Driven largely by the increasing adoption of cloud services, institutions are moving from an era of managing technology and infrastructure to one of managing services, vendors, and contracts. Join us to discuss the impact this shift is having on the enterprise and how IT and business leaders can prepare.

Meeting Outcomes
  • Recognize the challenges and opportunities that come with this shift in focus
  • Learn how others are dealing with those challenges and opportunities 
  • Develop ideas for next steps that address the challenges or take advantage of the opportunities at your own institution
