CIT IGNITE is a CIT-wide innovation challenge open to all
employees of CIO/AO, CCR, EAS, EIS, ISO, ITPC and NCS.
Attendees were invited to watch five teams from all over CIT
present proposals for new services that best demonstrated
innovative uses of IT to improve the UB experience for faculty,
staff or students.
The proposals were judged by a combination of scores from the
audience and the following panel:
- Tom Furlani, Interim Associate Vice President for
Information Technology (CIO)
- Robert Orrange, UB Career Services
- Kevin Cleary, CSE System Administrator
Their proposal for securely exposing select institutional data
to UB “citizen developers” and encouraging app
development captured the imagination of judges and attendees, and
will receive further consideration. In truth all of the ideas were
great, and CITPD heartily thanks all who participated.
