Improving Student Experiences using Cloud Innovation

Wednesday, 18 March 2020
10:00 – 12:00

Practical information and advice from Higher Education leaders who have taken their first steps with cloud technology.

Each new generation of higher education students brings heightened expectations to all aspects of the university experience. Continual improvements across teaching, learning and research therefore go hand in hand with long-term success and financial stability. As a technology leader for your organisation, you will play a vital role in this and need an appropriate strategy. Cloud computing is a potent catalyst for such change, and an increasing number of institutions are already benefiting from it. In this pre-conference session, hear about cloud adoption taking place across different aspects of the student experience such as data management, infrastructure, research, learning platforms and more. This will be an interactive session with the opportunity to ask questions and network with other delegates.




Identity management: solving the problem in higher education

Wednesday, 18 March 2020

Systems are now moving to the cloud faster than ever. So how do we protect an organisation’s data when it moves from ‘inside out’?


As IT leaders, our responsibilities include ensuring that there are adequate controls to protect the organisation's data. However, CXOs are taking more and more ownership of cloud-based applications as well as the data, which will no longer be stored in the on-premise IT data centre. How do we ensure that we have adequate controls? How do we ensure that student and programme data is safe? 


We’ve arranged for a leading IT director-turned-academic to explain why it is so difficult to tackle Identity Management challenges in higher education. Learn why academics do what they do that drive IT leaders to despair…and what you can do about it.


Join this interactive session hosted by Quest and One Identity technology experts. Food and drinks included. Also, plenty of opportunities to network with your peers.

Plus, as attendee you will be entered into our prize draw for a chance to win a FITBIT CHARGE 3!
