The Corporate Information Systems Group (CISG) is partnering with its sister group, the Project and Change Management Group (PCMG) to bring you this joint conference. The Glasgow Hilton is the venue for this year’s UCISA CISG-PCMG18 Annual Conference and Exhibition. The Conference dates are the 21 – 23 November 2018.
Dealing with change and the implications of change is a complex situation for most institutions, especially where we need to maintain business as usual systems and services while establishing new and updated systems and services. Now, more than ever, we need to look at how we introduce new infrastructure, systems and frameworks and establish new services, but to effectively do this, it is critical that we build secure efficient foundations for the future as we adapt and move forward.
Having a sound, but flexible base will help us to adapt quickly to new challenges, delivery models and technologies and will allow us to operate in environments where system interoperability and hybrid infrastructures are the norm. The sector continues to face many challenges from national and international competition, to uncertainties over Brexit and changing funding models. Our data landscape is also evolving as is our data governance and reporting responsibilities. Without an appropriate foundation we will not have the agility to meet our stakeholder’s requirements in a timely manner.
The Conference will be highlighting the crossovers and collaborations between the professional communities involved in change in our organisations and our planning for the future. There will be big ideas and vision alongside University Showcases providing real life examples of HE initiatives; sessions will provide practical takeaways and guidance. You will have excellent opportunities to consult and network with your peers and will be supported by a host of vendors who will be exhibiting their solutions and providing their thoughts and experiences to help meet the demands of these challenging times.
