A living blueprint of your institution
David Gillard, Head of IT Development, David Gee, Development Manager and Graham Snow, Data Development Consultant at University of Hertfordshire

“Do you know how your technology supports your strategic plan? When something breaks and the panic hits, do you know what the impact is before the phone rings? Where does your data come from and go? From strategic vision to server backups, and everything in between; all modelled against the ucisa UK HE Capability Model.”

The University of Hertfordshire will take you through their innovative cost-effective approach to solving these Enterprise Architecture and business challenges.

Bernard Aghedo, London Officer, ucisa

At the ucisa Leadership conference in Edinburgh in March there was a keynote presentation on how Microsoft Accessibility tools was changing a major government department. This session will aim to look at how HE and FE institutions are providing and supporting Assistive Technologies, a broader spectrum that includes accessibility, adaptive and rehabilitative technology for people with disabilities and the elderly. We will also consider the processes used in selecting, locating, and using them.
