Brief Presentation Description
Campus Software Rationalization – How to control software sprawl!

When was the last time you took a look at the growing list of software used on your campus? After the pandemic software buying spree in higher ed, many institutions found themselves with a blend of new and old applications with duplicative functions and underutilized features. What might be shocking is the total cost of paying for and supporting redundant software. In this session, we will explain this problem clearly and discuss strategies to streamline your tech and reduce your spend. In many cases, too much software can lead to poor workflows when a strategic reduction can improve staff and student experiences.

Come learn the financial and strategic benefits of doing this kind of portfolio review and how to put a framework in place to help control it going forward.
