Leveraging Managed IT Services to Improve Institutional Efficiencies: Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask.

71% of higher education CBOs believe higher ed is in the midst of a “financial crisis” with no foreseeable end in sight. For the first time, more than half of all four-year institutions discounted tuition by more than half in an effort to attract students this school year. At the same time, campus IT teams are struggling to keep up with rising student expectations and a growing backlog of critical projects due to a lack of resources needed to train existing employees and hire new staff.

Engaging a third party to give your own IT team the scale and skill it needs is a proven way to improve institutional efficiency, get your IT roadmap back on track and get more from your existing IT investments--but success isn’t guaranteed.

Learning Objectives - Attendees will be able to:

  • Transform your institution’s IT team from reactive and tactical to proactive and strategic;
  • Obtain the benefits of managed IT services while avoiding the most common pitfalls that can get institutions in deep trouble;
  • Differentiate between managed services and outsourcing and when to use each;
  • Successfully develop a shared IT services consortium with your peer institutions for mutual benefit; and
  • Transform your institution, deliver more value to more stakeholders more efficiently, and use IT as a competitive advantage in today’s environment.
