    • Maintaining Faculty CV
    • Tracking Faculty Publication Data
  • The lack of institutional support for tools that facilitate faculty collaboration hinders faculty impact and contribution, negatively impacting faculty satisfaction with the CIO
  • Institutions' lack of data to inform difficult decisions required to contain costs, differentiate and evolve their business model represents a tremendous opportunity for the CIO to deliver business value
