As the month of May approached, there was nothing but celebration. College graduates threw their caps in the air; students finished up another semester and packed their bags to go home. Faculty started prepping for next year, continuing their research or teaching another class. Your university/college suddenly went quiet and things are settling down. During this time, IT teams across the nation are revving up their agendas and planning their roadmaps for the following school year. The dawn of a new budget is on the horizon, the money will be distributed soon and CIO’s are making hard decisions.
According to a recent study, “Top IT Issues, 2015: Inflection Point” published earlier this year by EDUCAUSE, the inflection point of higher education revolves around flexibility, ability to adapt , openness and security. There are pinched budgets and a high demand of technology, how does an IT team plan out their roadmap accordingly?
