Davidson College needed a better way to create sustainable, strategically driven change. In 2019, they implemented the Digital Transformation Team. This agile team of tech-savvy generalists has completed numerous projects, eliminating tech debt, digitizing paper processes, and supporting COVID-19 initiatives along the way.
This small DX team is made up of tech generalists with skillsets in UX design, data management, and complex problem-solving. These individuals have zero operational responsibility, such as fixing network issues and installing software. They can move from one strategic technology project to the next and use skill and creativity to bring about results like operational relief through automation, training, and collaboration.
This session will look at the impressive journey of a small, liberal arts college through digital transformation using various web services and leveraging the power of APIs.
