“We gain so much from collaborating with other institutions that use TeamDynamix for project and service management,” said Ray V. Lefebvre, VP of IT and CIO, Bridgewater State University. “Campuses face unique support issues, ranging from connected classrooms to distance learning, from supporting campus infrastructure to troubleshooting student connectivity issues. The TeamDynamix Summit allows us to learn from hundreds of peers, share best practices, network and gain insights to future developments.”

TeamDynamix is organizing this panel discussion so that IT professionals can share ideas and learn from one another. “The higher ed environment is significantly different from the corporate world with regards to collaboration,” said C.J. Wimley, TeamDynamix CEO. “Campuses freely share what they’ve learned about best practices, implementation, roadblocks, and support. We encourage that knowledge sharing and process improvement, and with this live broadcast, we’re extending the opportunity beyond our own user base to other schools as well.”

The live broadcast of this CIO panel discussion presents a valuable opportunity to understand the challenges and solutions adopted by different professionals in varied settings.
