Enterprise IT Program

Intended Audiences

The program’s resources are designed for CIOs and their staff working on core enterprise IT; commercial firms that provide enterprise-related products and services; and associations like NACUBO, with members connected to the enterprise.

Enterprise IT Challenges

The program focuses on four challenges and explores each through a different thematic lens annually, providing related resources with background, recommendations, and action plans. Because enterprise IT is a large, complex, and multifaceted function, we provide a definition of the term as it relates to our program's scope and resources.

Effective Sourcing Strategies

Develop a sourcing strategy—from cloud to shared services—to support the institutional mission.
