An ITIL Mind
In Higher Ed, having a framework of best practices for service delivery is critical. In this Birds of a Feather, we will be discussing integrating ITIL best practices into your organization. Come prepared to talk about success stories and challenges your organization faces with integrating integrating ITIL Best Practices. You may be in an institution that currently does not have a best practice framework currently, this will be a good opportunity to see how your peer institutions are leveraging ITIL to streamline their business processes and in turn add value to their customer base.

Software License Management in Higher Ed
There are a number of software license management models in use within higher education. Some software vendors provide tracking systems for their licenses, while others rely on the institution to monitor their software entitlements. Many in higher education may not have access to costly license tracking systems and limp through the license management process with available resources. Some institutions use the centralized license management method, while others use the decentralized management approach. Come and share your experiences with license management and how you try to overcome the challenges of license tracking and entitlement reconciliation.
