“Technology is not a panacea for everything that ails higher education. Rather than believing that every[one]… should be using technology, we need to think strategically. Where can we use technology intelligently to make a real difference to our institutions in confronting… critical issues?”- Carol Twigg (2005) - president of the National Center for Academic Transformation

Topic 2: Data warehousing

What is Data warehousing ?

  • A 'data warehouse' is a repository of an organization's electronically stored data. Data warehouses are designed to facilitate reporting and analysis.

  • This classic definition of the data warehouse focuses on data storage. However, the means to retrieve and analyze data, to extract, transform and load data, and to manage data are also considered essential components of a data warehousing system. Many references to data warehousing use this broader context. An expanded definition for data warehousing includes tools for business intelligence, tools to extract, transform, and load data into the repository, and tools to manage and retrieve metadata

Topic 3: Infrastructure Management

What is Infrastructure Management

  • For an organization's information technology, infrastructure management (IM) is the management of essential operation components, such as policies, processes, equipment, data, human resources, and external contacts, for overall effectiveness. Infrastructure management is sometimes divided into categories of systems management, network management, and storage management. Infrastructure management products are available from a number of vendors including Hewlett-Packard, IBM, and Microsoft. Among other purposes, infrastructure management seeks to:

  • Reduce duplication of effort

  • Ensure adherence to standards

  • Enhance the flow of information throughout an information system

  • Promote adaptability necessary for a changeable environment

  • Ensure interoperability among organizational and external entities

  • Maintain effective change management policies and practices

  • Although all business activities depend upon the infrastructure, planning and projects to ensure its effective management are typically undervalued to the detriment of the organization. According to IDC, a prominent research firm investments in infrastructure management have the largest single impact on an organization's revenue.

“...the true object of architecture is not bricks, mortar, or timber, but the house; and so the principal object of natural philosophy is not the material elements, but their composition, and the totality of the substance, independently of which they have no existence…”

-- Aristotle

Topic 4: Sustainability

  • Sustainability is a very relevant and important buzzword in the institutional setting; the ability to upgrade and maintain current and cutting edge technological resources for students, staff, faculty and administrators is going to be a large indicator of institutional success in the future.

  • The definition of sustainability is "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" (World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987).

  • Elfland (2006) commented that “colleges and universities are ideally positioned to be leaders in demonstrating the economic benefits of sustainable design and construction” in her discussion of the future of campus design.

  • Sustainability in the college environment is important both for the economic status of an institution, and to students who will be benefiting from a campus that teaches and challenges them to take care of their resources and plan for the future.

  • Sustainability in technology planning is extremely important. Technology changes constantly, and finding practices that prevent waste due to materials that will quickly become outdated is key. If administrators, faculty and staff cannot use these resources and work with the changes then the upgrades are waste.

Technology is becoming a key factor in prospective students’ college search and in maintaining current students. Valuable technology resources attract and retain students. With so many technological upgrades and advances, it can be a struggle to keep on top of the latest trends.
