Beyond the Economic Downturn
The author draws an early roadmap to help IT leaders navigate beyond the economic downturn and to understand how a new economic reality might take shape in higher education institutions and in higher education IT organizations.
To explore current and future implications of the economic downturn, EDUCAUSE Review assembled a panel of senior IT leaders to answer questions regarding their IT budgets, possible structural changes and cost models, and the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
In a discussion of costs and revenues and information technology, three higher education financial officers provide a budgetary perspective on the topics of technology adoption, investments in technology, and management of the IT budget in the current fiscal climate.
EDUCAUSE presents the top-ten IT-related issues in terms of strategic importance to the institution, as revealed by the tenth annual EDUCAUSE Current Issues Survey. Not surprisingly, IT Funding is back as #1 on the list.
