Kudos to Jac
Jac was one of several people from U of M to attend the CIC TechForum 2009, held at Michigan State University (East Lansing, MI) this week. From the web site: TechForum is a biennial leadership development opportunity sponsored by the CIC CIOs for their respective IT staffs and others in campus IT organizations. Presentations are selected to demonstrate a broad range of cross-cutting topics in higher education IT, with an emphasis on networking and building relationships with peers from CIC institutions. TechForum's primary target audience is IT staff who demonstrate great promise for future leadership in higher education IT.
Jac gave a presentation on our storage architecture, and our collegiate alignment strategy. I've mentioned this strategy before. The storage strategy allowed us to: Provide a clear roadmap for our storage related services and better define our partnerships with our customers and units such as MSI. Review our in-place technical infrastructure and define our long-term strategy with respect to our storage and backup architecture and storage related services.
Jac's presentation was very well received by the CIC. If you're interested, her slides are available on the OIT internal wiki, along with the slides from others who presented at TechForum.
