Shared Campus IT Services from SICAS & ITEC
As all IT shops move into this era of The Great Resignation, what are current models that we can build on and strengthen to ensure that we can deliver streamlined services in an effective and efficient manner that meet the needs of our schools?

Bill Grau, Mike Notarius, Joe Hoot and Don Erwin will discuss existing services and new services that ITEC and SICAS are supporting to help SUNY collaborate at a high. Among the items covered will be ITEC’s new Service Catalog.

SUNY, Security and the great resignation
How can all SUNY schools continue to ensure our digital assets are safe at a time when risk is escalating and we have fewer staff to contribute to this important work. Paul Hebert and Mike Notarius will discuss a proposed new ITEC service that may be able to assist all of us. We will also bring in other SUNY security service providers such as the SOC and the SUNY CISO to assist in how we can work together to secure our campus's virtual infrastructure. 

2:30 - 2:45


2:45 - 3:45

SUNY & the DLE
SUNY’s move to a new Digital Learning Environment is moving at breakneck speed as Cohort One campuses focus on implementing D2L Brightspace for Fall 2022. Kim Scalzo, Harry Cargill, and other SUNY DLE team members will be present to provide updates and answer questions on many schools’ largest summer priority.
