Educause recently revealed its Top 10 IT Issues for 2017, prioritizing information security for the second year in a row and emphasizing data, infrastructure and IT leadership. The issues for 2017 were, on the surface, notably IT-centric, with information security topping the list for the second year in a row and a heavy emphasis on data, infrastructure and IT leadership (see box at right). Three new issues made the list for the new year: strategic leadership, defined as “repositioning or reinforcing the role of IT leadership as a strategic partner with institutional leadership”; higher education affordability, “prioritizing IT investments and resources in the context of increasing demand and limited resources”; and next-gen enterprise IT, “developing an implementing enterprise IT applications, architectures and sourcing strategies to achieve agility, scalability, cost-effectiveness and effective analytics.” Teaching and learning made the bottom of the list with issue No. 10.
