Working with … : many of HEWIT’s members are using common software and hardware services such as Microsoft, Blackboard, Panopto, CISCO, Dell, etc. which seeded the idea for a vendor specific event which connected the sector by common themes. The idea grew into the “Working with … “ event which is the only regional event of its kind within the UK, where one product or service is the core theme, combined with sector stories, and direct vendor support. It’s a forum for staff to meet, discuss recent developments and to exchange experiences.
Working with Microsoft: with over hundred delegates from the eight universities, these events have been by far the most successful event for HEWIT. It’s an opportunity for IT staff to meet, compare notes, and discuss Microsoft challenges, opportunities, and future direction for both Microsoft and the universities in Wales.
