During this episode of the Tech takes podcast, we chat with Jason Oliver, Director of IT, and Claire Gryce, Deputy Director of IT, both of the University of Sussex.
Jason and Claire explore the relationship and challenges that exist between research communities and the provision of IT services centrally. They also delve into the importance of developing a culture around digital transformation. We then move into discussing how digital was key for collaboration during the pandemic and how necessary digital skills are.
Together they conclude by discussing staff retention and recruitment, as well as the impact and challenges that exist around cyber security.
