Putting the "I" Back in CIO - Sponsored by Accenture

Tuesday, September 30 | 3:30PM–4:20PM | Meeting Room W311B-D
Session Type: Professional Development

No new technology has the potential to make or break IT like data science. For the CIO, the promise of a strategic role in the organization has always been contained in the "I" in the title: technology has just been an operational opening act. For the first time, we can deliver strategic value around the core activities of higher education: teaching and research. The infrastructure has been developed, the data is at hand, and now we must demonstrate how to deliver value with it. Wasn't this always the real promise of IT?

OUTCOMES: Better understand the potential of data analytics and how to use it at your institution * Get examples of data analytics efforts already under way and glimpse tools just over the horizon * Learn how to prepare your organization to participate
