Fordham IT has been named a recipient of the international Digital Edge 50 award for 2017.
Frank Sirianni, Ph.D., chief information officer and vice president of Fordham IT, accepted the award this March at Agenda17: What’s Next In Digital, a leadership conference held in Jacksonville, Florida.
The conference focused on transforming organizations for the digital world; in other words, how to drive institutions forward in a climate that demands higher education institutions and businesses to anticipate what and who will be using its resources.
The Digital Edge 50 award recognizes Fordham IT’s efforts to move the University’s systems (including Banner, the University’s system of record) and databases to the cloud in the summer of 2016. It was a bold step, because most higher education institutions still rely on local servers and adopting a cloud-based strategy, which is already the norm in finance, healthcare, and other sectors.
