Pooling the Resources of Dozens of Schools


With ever-climbing costs of supporting your administrative software, your institution needs the benefits of a virtual community of users from fellow institutions. Such communities pool resources and substantially keep down the costs of development, support, and implementation of software technology. Learn how to keep software support costs at a manageable level by sharing information across and between institutions through national and regional user groups, Web resources, dedicated listservs, and custom software contests. Discuss the required infrastructure behind these communities, how the technology must be industry-standard, net-centric, object-oriented and flexible.
