Take the first step toward better IT

Let’s Talk

Facing pressure to innovate, campus IT leaders must first navigate a growing list of improvement priorities and routine, yet time-consuming, operational tasks. But many lack the key personnel or expertise they need to do this, making it difficult to set aside time needed for meaningful innovation.

Create the space you need to innovate

Apogee, a Boldyn Networks Company, provides immediate help to campus IT leaders struggling with staff or expertise challenges. Apogee Professional Services offer:

  • Networking and IT assessments to help define and prioritize for repair critical gaps in infrastructure, processes, or tools 
  • Executive Advisory Services for IT strategy development, planning, budgeting, and short-term guidance of in-house resources to achieve operational steady state
  • Project-based engagements to resolve specific operational or systems issues
  • Staff augmentation to immediately address gaps in in-house expertise or staffing

Following more than two decades of exclusive service to higher education, Apogee collaborates with your IT team to unlock time for in-house staff, reset strategic priorities, and chart a new path to organizational growth and innovation.

“At the end of the day, when you’re working in an institution of higher education, you want to get those students walking across the stage with a degree, becoming alumni, becoming productive members of their communities. We want to deliver the technology that can support that mission. It’s listening to them to see what part of the puzzle higher ed is missing. Sometimes it’s operational talent. Sometimes it’s strategy. And sometimes it’s a mixture of the two.”
