Hot Topics

ITANA is actively working on three topics that were identified as key areas in the Face2Face 2008 meeting. These areas: Data Management, Architecture Implementation Case Studies and Selling Points for Architecture are outlined below. If you are interested in participating, please join the EDUCAUSE ITANA Constituent Group and participate in the Conference Calls.

Data Management

With collaborative research taking place everywhere how do we classify the research data, protect it while the research is going on and then enable everyone to see after the research is published? How do we collaborate with the libraries on this one? How do we arrive at data management policies that cut across the whole institution? What are some of the examples of institutions doing it successfully today?

Case Studies

Descriptions of ongoing Enterprise Architecture programs in your university. How, Who, What, and any impacts the program has had/is having on your IT environment. Descriptions of specific projects that have been significantly impacted (positively) by the Enterprise Architecture program.

Selling Points

How do you describe Enterprise Architecture/I.T. Architecture and/or other architecture practices to leadership on your campus? What does your leadership find valuable in having an architecture group? Do you gather metrics? How could you show ROI for practicing architecture?
