CIT IGNITE 2013 (7/15/13)

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

And the Winner Was...Team iCODE

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.
