What is your Mobile 2.0 Strategy? Just because you have an app, doesn’t mean you have a strategy…

  • The need to mobilize the campus and deliver the experience today’s student expects.
  • Mobility enables students to be more success.  Giving students more resources. Being able to measure data of use and tracking.
  • How do you create a mobile ready infrastructure? Do you have the resources to pull this together. Determine the goals of the project, connect to campus initiatives and strategies.
  • The impact of student expectations and the consumer market is driving mobile.
  • According to the Campus Computing Survey 53% of campuses appear to be building their own mobile apps.
  • Although mobile is a top IT priority (#6 / 65%), only 17% of CIOs rate mobile services as “excellent”.
