Technology in Higher Education

The role of a higher education information technology administrator has become one of the most critical functions within an institution. Protecting your school’s intellectual property and sensitive personnel files from online threats is critical for the reputational and financial well-being of your institution. As technology continuously evolves, it can be challenging to stay up to date on the latest and greatest.

Discover new ways to protect your IT network against the latest threats and risks with CACUBO’s resources below – whether it’s best practices in disaster recovery or examples of technology response plans. Let CACUBO help you by sharing what you need to know when it comes to technology in higher education.

Trends in Higher Education Information Technology

Is your institution using data analytics to help inform decision making? If you’re not, you could be. See how other campuses are exploring analytics in financial and other non-traditional areas.

Will you be deploying new hardware and software? Or, are you considering an enterprise resource planning (ERP) upgrade? These decisions take research, time and expertise to make the right choice and implement successfully. Since choosing the best technology in higher education has institutional, functional and financial impact, we encourage you to harness the expertise of other CACUBO members. Their insights and experiences will help you save time, and ultimately money, when approaching your next big project.

Many schools are considering migrating traditionally physical documents and communication assets to cloud-based systems. This switch can potentially save a considerable amount of money. Are there unique higher education information technology risks involved? CACUBO resources can help you avoid common pitfalls, including compliance issues and migration risks.

For college and university business officers tasked with the management of higher education information technology departments and functions, CACUBO offers best practices and case studies of new technology in action through our resources below.
