Wisegate Joins EDUCAUSE to Empower IT Professionals with Next Generation of IT Learning

Wisegate, as a part of its commitment to improving higher education IT, has joined EDUCAUSE’s membership base of more than 68,000 higher education professionals around the world. EDUCAUSE, an association that fosters a community of IT leaders committed to advancing higher education, is a natural fit for Wisegate’s mission to connect IT experts who want to exchange knowledge in a collaborative, vendor-free environment.

“We believe that matching IT experts with their peers so that they can share complex IT challenges and insights is the best way to obtain real-world, timely advice and practices that work,” said Sara Gates, founder and CEO of Wisegate. “What we admire most and strive to emulate about the higher education industry is its unique culture of sharing. Higher education IT professionals realize that progress is made when sharing knowledge and practices that work is commonplace.”

Wisegate is building the next generation IT advisory service using social, matching and mobile technology, coupled with hands-on help, to deliver fast, actionable knowledge that senior IT leaders can trust. Wisegate connects members to the most relevant peers and content using a predictive matching algorithm, which can recommend the most relevant content and peers for members based on their projects, profile, and interactions on Wisegate. Wisegate’s higher education members are thriving on the well-rounded perspectives of senior IT professionals across many industries, and are able to collaborate with their peers prior to making IT decisions.

“We’ve seen that many higher education IT professionals are considering making a move from home-grown systems, such as legacy student information systems, human resources programs, financial systems, and learning management systems, to updated, commercially-available platforms,” said Gates. “Wisegate matches members to their peers who have experience navigating similar projects to allow them to learn quickly and save time, money and costly mistakes.”

Gates will be speaking at the EDUCAUSE 2014 Annual Conference on September 30 at 1:30 p.m. EDT. In “Making the IT Security Grade: Benchmark Data and Advice,” Gates will share peer benchmark data from Wisegate community-based research and discuss how veteran CISOs and IT leaders use benchmarking to improve their security programs, demonstrate business value, and build executive support for new programs or underfunded initiatives.

In September, Wisegate will be hosting a roundtable for higher education IT professionals to meet and discuss the industry’s key challenges and goals, such as information management and security, HPC applications and networking, and digital learning curriculum.

Wisegate’s roundtables and other networking services have had a meaningful impact on David Sherry, CISO of Brown University. “Having the ability to collaborate with other higher education IT professionals has been invaluable to me both as an individual and as a CISO of a major university,” said Sherry. “Knowing that I can share my own knowledge and expertise and help a fellow academia professional makes me feel that I’m contributing to the greater good of the industry.”
