On Tuesday, April 2, 2019, top technology leaders from across greater Houston’s ISDs and educational institutions gathered at Lone Star College in The Woodlands for a day of thought-sharing and collaboration.
Keynote speech was provided by Link Alander, CIO of Lone Star College, who said:
“The Tech-in-Ed Summit provided a fantastic opportunity to collaborate and connect with other area IT leaders in education. This was especially helpful in connecting us with the ISDs in the Lone Star College service area. I see this collaboration continuing and the event growing in the future. Well worth our time to attend.”
The morning began with the Executive Panel, featuring prominent technology leaders from across Houston ISDs.
Attendees participated in various breakout sessions covering a range of topics, from Cyber Security to Infrastructure and Enterprise Client Management.
Attendees enjoyed catering from Katz’s Deli as they chatted with our sponsors, including Fortinet, IGEL, Ivanti, Okta, Tenable, Varonis, Veeam, VMWare and Western Digital.
The Expert Panel provided some key insights into current trends of today’s K-12 ISD and higher ed spaces.
