IT Summit 2014

On October 28, 2014, the Office of the Chief Information Officer hosted the second Information Technology (IT) Summit at the University of Arizona for campus IT professionals. Event highlights included opening remarks from University of Arizona Andrew Comrie, an inspiring keynote speech by Tom Soderstrom, various informative breakout sessions, an interactive poster session, and much more.

For many of the 500 information technology professionals that attended the UA IT Summit, it was their first opportunity to formally connect with their peers from other colleges and departments, exchange ideas, discuss IT trends, and share best practices.
