The Top 20 Most Innovative Midmarket CIOs


Mark Kondrak, CIO, Hamline University

Industry: Education

Challenge: Hamline's student and faculty communities were on disparate platforms for email and calendars, which created a lack of a uniformity, coordination, efficiency and collaboration.

Innovation: Kondrak and his team moved the entire community onto a single and integrated cloud-based collaboration platform, starting with, but not limited to, email and enterprise calendaring services via a massive Google deployment.

ROI: The university has saved money removing the maintenance costs of legacy enterprise calendar systems and is no longer constrained by its system, which has liberated its community and fostered universitywide collaboration.

Solution provider/vendor partners: Google, Agosto, Concensus Technologies, Spanning
