Students, faculty and staff use of technology has accelerated over the past decade. The pandemic accelerated dependency on online learning and the mobile workforce.

Our panel of experts transitioned legacy systems and processes and replaced them with affordable automated systems. Hear about pain points, pros and cons, project highlights, and answers to questions about research journeys to find new solutions.
