The sector has made big changes to their business environments and supporting infrastructure and has seen a huge move to remote online working for staff. They now face the challenge of Academic Year 2020/2021, the move to remote teaching delivery and a rapid adoption of blended learning approaches.

The sector has proved they can work agilely, ‘Storming and Performing’ during Covid-19, they have delivered great benefits for our staff and students, but are DevOps practices becoming the norm in institutions? How are they ensuring data integration, portability and security continue to be part of their strategic approach? What constitutes the “New Normal” way of working? How are remote working models, distributed services, remote and blended learning, cloud provision, agile development with just in time delivery being embedded in institutions?

This year the conference will be online, and we seek to explore the new environments and landscapes that Covid-19 has necessitated, recognising that many of these changes will be here to stay. We want to celebrate the success stories and look at the lessons learned. There have been many challenges to overcome this year and we want you to share your experience and tell the community about your collaborations with institutions. You have been exploring new ways to engage with and support universities and colleges in these changing times; licensing and business models will need to be adapted to reflect the new modes of delivery, an especially relevant issue in the light of decreasing institutional budgets. Many institutions face stark financial choices and are looking now more than ever to technology to help deliver innovative solutions and value for money. What impact will this new service delivery and working model have on the implementation of your Education, Research, and overall Digital Strategies?

Attendees at this event will comprise those responsible for the development and implementation of corporate and academic systems, programme and project management and business process improvement, their staff and CIOs and IT Directors.
