100+ Penn IT staff attend exciting IT staff convention

May 10, 2006 :: Shirley Ross, Information Systems & Computing

More than 100 IT staff from across the University participated in an IT Staff Convention on April 26 sponsored by Information Systems & Computing. The half-day convention, held in response to staff requests for more opportunities for Penn’s IT professionals to gather and share best practices, was comprised of 12 moderated discussions, each with a scribe to capture all of the ideas. Topics focused on various IT technologies and management issues ranging from virtualization technology to student support challenges, from hiring and managing IT staff and managing relationships with vendors to best practices for firewalls and VPNs to planning business continuity. The 12 discussions were held within three consecutive hour-long sessions each offering four concurrent topics from which participants could choose. The sense of continued collaboration among the University’s IT staff was one of the convention’s most exciting aspects. For more information, visit or contact Amy Phillips at
