EDUCAUSE Review, v44 n4 p36-43 Jul-Aug 2009
In May 2009, three senior financial leaders in higher education--Laurie G. Antolovic, Albert G. Horvath, and Margaret F. Plympton--participated in a panel session, moderated by Philip J. Goldstein, at the EDUCAUSE Enterprise Information and Technology Conference. The three also shared their thoughts in an audio interview conducted by Gerry Bayne, EDUCAUSE multimedia producer. Drawn from both the conference session and the audio interview, this article presents a discussion that provides a financial perspective on the topics of technology adoption, investments in technology, and management of the IT budget in the current fiscal climate.
