Welcome

Security, mobility, and covergence initiatives will be topping the to-do lists of campus technology leaders in 2006. Are you ready?

When it comes to the advancement of technology on your campus or campuses, wouldn’t it be great to have at your fingertips the most pertinent information you might need to help you launch or move forward that looming security, mobility, or convergence initiative? Wouldn’t it be invaluable to be able to access—in one place—the best practices, best thoughts and ideas, and most striking innovations in those three most urgent technology areas?

Frankly, we thought so. Herewith, we present our first annual 101 Best Practices guide, this year focusing on the critical Big Three technology challenges that keep even the savviest campus CIOs up at night.

We’ve structured our guide to not only be brimming with the “what works” information you need most, but to be easily navigable, too. A quick glance at the table of contents on the preceding page will get you to the appropriate section for your current needs: Security, Mobility, or Convergence. Then, simply head to the “Where to Find…” index and resource guide on pages 8 and 10 to locate the precise topic information you’re looking for; the “best practice” numeral will get you right to your most-needed information. In addition, you can scan the resource guide to pinpoint institutions whose initiatives you may want to reference; technology-vendor companies whose products or services you may wish to research; or technology vendors who are advertisers in this issue, and for whose products you may want additional information.

Don’t miss our special CT Solutions selection this month with a special focus on security, mobility, and convergence products and services. And be sure to catch our targeted show coverage on this issue—it will steer you to the technology industry and association conferences that showcase the latest products and information sessions focused on the Big Three. Start with the Where to Find Guide for quick access or click on one of the three sections: Security, Mobility, and Convergence.
