ShareIT is a shared IT procurement service that was formed by Alberta’s post-secondary institutions, and launched in the spring of 2017. The goal of this program is to increase service offerings and improve the quality of collaboration at Alberta’s institutions — while driving down costs — through group IT procurement. Currently, ShareIT offers networking devices and end user computing hardware, and its managing committee is investigating survey tool applications, a managed security service, and virtualization technology for its next offering. The collective has also recently welcomed Alberta’s K-12 school districts to take advantage of the existing ShareIT procurement contracts. This presentation will look at the potential services and tools that ShareIT could offer going forward, and the cost-savings they would provide. A strong community has been established with other organizations that offer shared IT, both nationally and internationally, to establish procurement strategies. This presentation will share the current environmental scan of these organizations and how the Alberta education sector can benefit from this global collaboration. It will also look at the benefits of bringing other user groups into the program, including the shared experiences they could offer.
