Information Technology--Can It All Fit? Proceedings of the Current Issues Forum of the 1988 CAUSE National Conference (Nashville, Tennessee, December 2, 1988). Professional Paper Series, #2.
CAUSE, Boulder, CO.
A key issue facing college and university executives is the best way to organize to provide information services to faculty, staff, and students. Three experienced university executives addressed this issue at the forum on information technology described in this document. They looked at the following topics: how their own institution chose to organize for information technology; what factors led them to organize in this manner; their perceptions of the strengths and weaknesses of this particular choice of organization; and advice to other institutions facing a decision about how to organize for information technology. The papers are as follows: "Information Resource Management: Why Centralize?" (Paige Mulhollan); "Information Technology Management: Finding the Right Fit" (Robert Scott); and "Gaining Acceptance for an IRM Program" (Thomas W. West). A transcript of the concluding question-answer session is appended. (SM)
