How has the CIO's role changed in Higher Ed? The Tertiary Education IT Leaders Congress will address the skills and capabilities required to be an effective CIO. Given the dynamic and increasingly complex nature of the Tertiary Education sector it is imperative to implement technology strategies for future-proofing the organisation. As the Higher Education sector is often an early adopter of technology there is an increased chance of missteps in cloud deployments, network upgrades and many other initiatives.

The Tertiary Education IT Leaders Congress explores the technical challenges facing CIOs and ICT leaders from the entire tertiary and higher education sector. It will explain how to build, implement and support the systems required to take the higher education sector into the future.
