How can IT services generate revenue and save money between a university and a not-for-profit organization? When the University of Florida Student Affairs IT (UFL) offered infrastructure-as-a-service or “educational cloud” services to the Association of College and University Housing Officers – International (ACUHO-I), the benefits turned out to be a win-win-win situation. UFL is able to utilize raised funds to offer enhanced services to students, and ACUHO-I is more effective at serving its members – universities – it is a mutually beneficial circle.
These facilitation slides served as an interactive guide during the Educause Connect Miami conference in April 2016 and triggered Jenga moves where the Jenga tower was used as representation of the IT office. Presented by Dave Connelly, Shaun Holloway, and Matt Pendleton.
