2017 Michigan IT Symposium

President Schlissel has set ambitious goals for our university around data science and enhancing our student and faculty researchers’ ability to tap into the enormous potential of big data. We are poised to help U-M faculty, researchers, patient-care providers, and students tackle the huge challenges of our time—and the massive amounts of data their work requires—through the strategic use of cloud platforms.

The 2017 symposium focused on how IT work at Michigan is transforming with the proliferation of cloud technologies and services. It offered opportunities for Michigan IT staff to build new skills to take advantage of the opportunities ahead of us. We also invited conversations of when cloud may not be the right choice, evaluating services and vendors, and supporting the people side of technology change.
