Headshot of Ivy Anderson

I’m a self-described photo-essayist, and my blog combines short essays with eye-catching photography.

I work with clients in higher education, and more broadly, in the public sector, helping them optimize the impact of technology in their organizations. I help define strategy and governance models, evaluate and justify large technology investments and, ultimately, achieve efficiencies and increased effectiveness through improved technology management.

With more than 25 years of consulting, I specialize in IT capability assessments, government ERP activity, business case development, sourcing effectiveness, vendor analysis, and strategic planning.

I’ve always been excited about how technology is changing our world. I love advising education and other public sector clients on how to become excellent stewards of the dollars they’re entrusted to spend and to be more effective in their use and deployment of IT. Because they know I’m truly invested in their success, they appreciate my advice, objectivity, and technologically savvy.

I’m affiliated with The Peace School Chicago, an alumnae of the Leadership Greater Chicago fellowship program, and a former board member for Girl Scouts of Chicago. I received my B.S.M.E. from Kettering University and my M.B.A. from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

I’m a seasoned martial arts practitioner, currently pursuing my third-degree black belt in the traditional Korean martial art of Tae Kwon Do. I’m also an avid photographer and blogger.
