Back to the Future has arrived. While there are no hover boards or flying cars today, certain predictions such as TV glasses and video conferencing have come true.

I invite you to join your colleagues on February 17-18, 2015 for a program on instructional technology innovation. This two-day event is part of the Digital Challenges Series, co-sponsored by UB Information Technology and University Libraries.
The University at Buffalo has an excellent cadre of IT staff within both UB’s schools and across central administration. These professionals do an excellent job in seamlessly providing IT services to the institution.

Dr. Thomas Furlani has been involved in high-performance scientific computing and data visualization at UB for over 20 years. We welcome him to the UBIT blog.

I am extremely pleased to welcome Information Security Officer Nadira Gangadhar Persad, CISA, CRISC. Nadira brings an impressive 18 years of IT, Information Security and Risk Management experience to the university.
As we begin a new academic year, UBIT is initiating a more active outreach to campus on new and innovative technology opportunities and issues. The goal is to understand your needs and explore ways technology can better serve the faculty and students.
UB was fortunate to have our president Dr. Satish Tripathi chosen as the Keynote Speaker for the 2014 New York State CIO (NYSCIO) Conference in July 2014.
Net neutrality is the philosophy of an open, free and unrestricted worldwide Internet, and it is a very complex issue.
It’s a great time to be at UB and I’m excited to join the UBIT team as your new Vice President and CIO. The entire institution is rallying around the UB 2020 vision and focus is becoming clear about our future.
