Tuesday, February 28 | 11:15AM–12:00PM | Sundance, Lobby Level
Session Type: Breakout Session
Why? Three simple words: plan, build, and operate. Do them all correctly, and success is in order. We will walk through a network life-cycle approach to successfully enabling information technology to support your missions in higher education and research. These three continuous phases encompass an end-to-end view. At any point in time, every IT organization finds itself in one of these life-cycle stages. This model applies to any and all IT projects regardless of size, scope, time, and budget. Effective planning of next-generation IT architectures is a complex task critical to each project's success.
