Workshop: The What and Why of Data
Today, institutions are dealing with a myriad of issues, including enrollment declines, revenue shortfalls, staffing and retention issues, and the need to develop new teaching models. Central to solving these problems is the need to develop a better understanding and effective use of data and analytics. Developing a data-driven culture requires an institutional commitment to cross-functional efforts that are both transparent and cooperative.
This workshop will take attendees through the journey to develop a data-informed institution no matter what your current state. Take away research-backed strategies to develop a modern advanced analytics environment that can help your institution not only survive but thrive in this new reality for higher education.
Panel: Empowered CIOs in the Real World
Institutional technology leaders can put themselves in the best position to orchestrate and enable transformational initiatives by engaging their network around real-world experiences. Interact with CIOs that will share and discuss specific actions they took to execute on a strategy—aligning to institutional mission, navigating staffing issues, and more.
Focus will be given to lessons learned and “aha” moments. Tambellini looks forward to facilitating the sharing of broader insights from your peer groups via access to the network of institutional leaders attending the Symposium.
Workshop: Planning for Modernization to the Cloud
Research has surfaced numerous challenges faced by institutions in pursuing a modernization effort, centered around gaps in planning and identifying obstacles to navigate. As a strategy that’s bigger than IT, modernizing includes not only the “big rocks” of your Finance, HCM, and Student systems, but all the other projects—and their stakeholders—on the CIO’s whiteboard.
This workshop will guide attendees through the elements of developing personalized modernization strategies to make technology selections best suited for your institution. Through breakouts and activities, you’ll have the groundwork prepared for planning a successful journey.
