New IT Issues Emerge at EDUCAUSE

At EDUCAUSE the top IT issues for 2017 were recently identified. While some are familiar, some new issues emerged this year: strategic leadership, affordability and next-gen enterprise IT. How do these issues resonate on your campus?

Each year EDUCAUSE provides an opportunity for educational leaders and IT vendors to come together to share best practices, perspectives and new developments. While some issues—like information security—remain evergreen, others ebb and flow. One benefit to attending, or reading about the highlights of the event, is finding out where your school fits on the ed-tech adoption continuum. Taking the time to learn about new options, new practices and emerging developments can help educators make the most of technology.
