The proliferation of technology in higher education has turned the IT organization into a critical campus enabler. Almost every project on campus today is an IT project, requiring some input or guidance from technology leaders in both implementation and continued support.

While IT shoulders these new projects and technologies, leaders across campus—and sometimes IT staff themselves—remain reluctant to part with older, less efficient technologies and applications. As a result, IT is stuck supporting layers of aging and redundant technologies that continue to mount year after year.

This executive brief from IT Strategy Advisory Services compiles best practice research to help IT leaders leverage data and principled tactics to mitigate risks, eliminate legacy and redundant technologies, and recoup valuable IT costs and resources.
