EMBED IN CULTURE
The focus on visibility with the building projects translated into the overall district strategy. IT spend is more predictable, strategic, and technology choices are curriculum-centric.
A growing district and new building projects required greater visibility into IT planning and spend.
CREATE A COALITION
This process of discovery through the assessment empowered both administration and the board of education.
VISION & STRATEGY
The assessment process helped develop a consolidated plan for the building projects as well as strategies for future IT spend.
The assessment process outlined a roadmap for cost-neutral solutions that would increase visibility and lead to more predictive spending.
COMMUNICATE THE VISION
The recommendations from the assessment assisted with current projects as well as future initiatives to increase IT visibility and improve budget certainty.
NBEC and DataServ’s assistance in strategically planning the IT portion of these projects helped establish trust between both partners.
