During a recent interview, I was asked a question regarding what digital transformation means to higher education and more specifically McMaster University. It was a timely question given where we are with our McMaster IT Strategy and one that I enjoyed answering.
Enjoyed you may be thinking, why enjoyed?
For anyone who has read my blog, they will tell you that as much as I oversee the technological elements and IT infrastructure of one of only four Canadian Universities consistently ranked in the world’s top 100 (McMaster’s most recent global ranking is 77th), I am very much about engagement and personal interaction with individuals all across our institution.
Because people as much as technology is at the centre of our strategy, our Digital Moments are a crucial part of our ability to realize both individually and collectively the full digital promise outlined in our IT Strategic Vision.
