Why should I attend?

Only 5% of U.S. higher education institutions have selected a modern cloud ERP solution. The other 95% are thinking about it or making plans for it. Which one are you? Student success and managing a demanding constituent population are also imperatives that IT is tasked with tackling. No matter where you are in the process of modernizing your systems, this event addresses project challenges, best practices, and how to set yourself up for success. Learn and be guided by CIOs and IT tech leaders from other colleges and universities, who will share practical takeaways for managing your cloud projects.
