Maximizing Value in a Time of Change

Tuesday, August 12, 2014


In June 2014, nearly 150 higher education thought leaders representing both business operations and information technology met in Chicago, Illinois, to discuss challenges and opportunities for administrative IT systems and services. The EDUCAUSE/NACUBO Administrative IT Summit 2014 produced several recommendations for how institutions can maximize the value of administrative IT:

  • Gain efficiencies by developing an institutional sourcing strategy that may include a mix of cloud services, shared services, and on-premise services and by examining business processes to decrease the need for customization of administrative IT systems and increase alignment between business processes and institutional mission.
  • Increase the benefits provided by administrative IT by using data from administrative systems to provide business intelligence in support of institutional strategy and by developing collaborative relationships between IT leaders and business officers and between institutions and solutions providers.
