Connecting with Others:

  • Susan - EDUCAUSE is planning to use its research to benefit the communities.
    • EDUCAUSE wants to involve the communities more with its research. Educause sees opportunities to work with ITANA with benchmarks and maturity assessment architecture.
    • EDUCAUSE would love to support ITANA and the enterprise architecture community
  • Jim - Three EDUCAUSE topics that are interesting to me:  Competencies for Emerging Roles (EA, EBA), Digital Capabilites, Maturity Assessments for EA
  • Susan - Karen Wetzel will now be the EDUCAUSE lead for both working groups and constituent groups. She's really excited about the opportunity to improve EDUCAUSE support for CGs
  • Beth Schaefer & Brenda - co-leads of the women IT group in Educause
    • One of the goals early on was to engage with other groups
    • Had a virtual coffee session in August with topic of Women in Leadership Role and Women who aspire to be CIOs
  • Bernadette - the constituent group meet once a month virtually 
  • Women in IT Topics:  How to be better allies
  • Because Educause has so many groups, women may not aware of the other working groups.
  • Question to the group from members:
    • Would you be interested in joining these events?
      • A few people said yes
    • Thoughts / comments?
      • EA has changed over time. It is not very representative or diverse. We want to make it more attractive to people who may have had an incorrect impression of this field.
      • There's an enormous amount of potential to educate our university's leadership on how EA works, and people doing EA work that may not hold the title or be aware of the ITANA community
      • EA can be a way for non-management career progression for people in Higher education
      • The cross-polination is good. Letting people know about events / calls from other communities that they may not be a part of, but would fit their interests
      • Next year during one of the conferences it would be good to flash talks and presentations to give people an idea of the other work groups and resources that are available
      • Men are welcome to join the women in IT group. Help with advocacy in your campus.
      • Educause group: https://www.educause.edu/discuss/women-in-it-constituent-group
  • Internet2 
    • Has helped in the past solve common problems such as group management - Grouper
    • Middleware management and accessing software hosted in a variety of institutions - COmanage
    • Shibboleth - federation access 
    • Trusted access via Incommon Federation
    • I2 opportunities:  Future Network Use Cases, TIER connectors and contributions
    • Software development to take the various components developed over the years, tie them together via APIs and make them available to the community - TIER 
      • Could ITANA download the software and take a look at things with your identity folks? does it meet the needs of your institution?
      • Comment - can TIER help with guidance and long term planning / vision regarding Trust & Identity in higher education institutions?
      • The TAP Reference Architecture (RA)
