College IT Conference

Coombe Abbey – 2015

The 8th annual College IT Conference was held at Coombe Abbey on the 20th March 2015.

Matthew Gast opened the day providing a deep dive presentation on “The Internet of Things”, going into the background of the wireless elements and the future direction the technology is likely to take.

Coombe Abbey offered a historic setting for an informative mix of technical seminars delivered by the IT committee of the Collegiate Colleges’ and from our invited sponsors, topped of with a number of lively round tables.  Some topics covered included “ADFS and Shibboleth for Sharepoint”, “Microsoft EES Licence (Campus): The Good, The Bad, The Ugly”, “Access and Identity Management disussion”, “Information management in a college environment”.

The sponsors’ hall proved popular during lunch and the breaks as usual, offering us a great chance to learn about new technologies and meet suppliers.

As always the event could not have gone ahead without our sponsors’ contributions. This year we are pleased to be able to thank the following sponsors for their generous support: Sharprint, S3 Consulting, Khipu, Dell, CAE, Aruba, Switchshop, Lan3, CWL, HP, Vii Networks, ForeScout.
