Top 10 Trends from the 2018 HEDW Survey

As part of the yearly conference cycle, the Research Chair members ( Hank Childers-Univ of Arizona, Aaron Walz – Purdue University) issue a survey to the HEDW members to gather thoughts from the trenches on functional areas and technology trends, with the intent of sharing these results out to the HEDW members. This year’s filtration process of responses has yielded great insights from categories such as Organization & Culture, Technology, People ( skills & market), Higher Education Issues and Opportunities, and Data governance.
