Webinar | Playbook for Maximizing IT Teams and Solutions

This webinar is a part of the EDUCAUSE Industry & Campus Solutions series.

Technology’s role in higher education has skyrocketed in recent years, increasing the load on IT’s already overburdened shoulders. Rather than buckle beneath the pressure, IT teams must take on increasingly strategic roles so they can get the most value out of technologies like the cloud, which eases IT burdens and benefits students and staff. But in a diverse technology landscape, how can IT decision makers find their institution’s right-fit solutions and manage change across campus?

In this session, Jeff Schneider, CIO of College of the Ozarks in Missouri, and Travis Wooley, director of IT at AdventHealth University in Florida, join Terrill Gilley of Jenzabar to discuss how IT teams can take on more strategic roles on campus to facilitate transformation. They will highlight the growing need for the cloud, the value of a single-vendor system supplemented by selective integrations, and the importance of partnering with a vendor with a shared vision.


  • Discover the benefits of IT taking on a more strategic role on campus.
  • Learn why cloud solutions are so critical in today’s higher education environment.
  • Uncover the value of a single-vendor software solution and the power of that partnership.
  • Identify how to rightsize your tech stack through judicious use of integrations.
