CIOs on the Edge: The Value of Distributed IT Leadership

Thursday, October 20 | 2:30PM–3:20PM | Meeting Room 204A
Session Type: E11
Distributed IT support is a feature of academic institutions, not a bug or an unintended consequence of decentralized budgeting. It is an adaptive response to the complex environments being served. Campus and "edge" CIOs working in collaboration create stronger institutions by discovering and promoting standardized solutions without sacrificing local needs.
