Making Changes to Enterprise and Campus Communications Systems - Experiences from the Field

Time 04/25/06 01:15PM-02:30PM

This livestream has concluded. The archive video will be posted here. Archives can take up to two weeks to be posted.

Session Abstract

This session will discuss the experiences of member institutions while making changes to enterprise and departmental communications systems. The targeted audience is both Telecommunications/IT Infrastructure managers, and campus decision makers charged with providing communications services. In this context, "changes" may be, but not limited to, consolidations, expansions, migrations to new platforms, decommissioning legacy systems, changing service providers, and outsourcing experiences. This session will emphasize the experience, including business drivers, technology drivers, compliance/security drivers, and organizational/cultural hallenges/opportunities.
The format will be a series of 4-5 short presentations interleaved with moderated discussion and audience questions. The targeted goal is to discuss experiences and not specific technology solutions, as technology solutions depend on a myriad of situation specific variables.
