Innovation and Shared Services: Odd Bedfellows, or a Marriage Made in Heaven?

Thursday, June 12 | 5:00PM–5:45PM | Crystal Ballroom B
Session Type: Professional Development
This panel will examine IT shared services in Georgia and how these services are providing a basis for innovation and transformation among 31 institutions and universities. We will examine private clouds, virtual library systems, software as a service, learning management systems, financials, contract negotiation, shared governance, and other opportunities not only for innovation but also for cost savings and efficiencies. Can institutional agility, economies of scale by acting as a system, and innovation at multiple levels be balanced to deliver transformational opportunities? Learn what has worked.
