Alberta educators are under pressure to improve their IT capabilities, on reduced budgets.
ShareIT is an Alberta IT procurement service. It leverages shared experiences, knowledge and economies of scope and scale to provide Cybera’s education-sector members with IT hardware and services — all at a lower cost.
ShareIT's Guiding Principles:
- Make services available that would normally be out of reach to smaller organizations
- Reduce service management duplication across organizations
- Create economies of scale
- Increase Alberta educators' negotiation power by pooling purchase needs
- Utilize existing capacity within the education system
- Operate on an opt-in, opt-out model, on a per-service basis
ShareIT is governed by a collective of post-secondary institutions in the province. Its model allows any post-secondary institution within Alberta to join and become a consumer and/or provider of the shared IT service(s). Alberta K-12 institutions are also welcome to join and become a consumer of any existing service agreement.
- Cybera facilitates the service delivery lifecycle of ShareIT, which includes managing, opportunity identification, building requirements, service design, acquisition, and operations.
