LT5: IT perspectives on institutional integration
Mergers of previously distinct entities are a feature of the modern Higher Education landscape. Shannon College of Hotel Management was successfully integrated into NUI Galway in summer 2015, and the newly constructed Medical Academies - which facilitate teaching in locations beside hospitals in Castlebar, Letterkenny and Sligo - followed suit in late 2015 and early 2016. St. Angela’s College is scheduled for integration in 2017. Integrating these institutions touches on almost every aspect of IT service provision from network connection through identity management and into service provision and support. This lightning talk will present on the challenges faced and lessons learned from the NUI Galway Institutional Integration IT Program.
