A NorthTec computer technician, who is among New Zealand’s most qualified Apple administrators, is preparing to present at her second major conference this year.
Carroll Irvine, a Client Services Technician based at the Raumanga campus, will be a speaker at the NZ Tertiary ICT Conference taking place at Victoria University in Wellington next month.
Carroll will address an audience of IT specialists from polytechnics and universities from around New Zealand, speaking about her experience of Mobile Device Management (MDM) at NorthTec.
The conference theme will investigate the impact digital innovation and change is having on the New Zealand higher education sector. Sub-themes include digital transformation and leadership; achieving relevance in learning, teaching, research and the student lifecycle; and anticipating and embracing rapid change.
In June Carroll was invited to speak at the prestigious X World conference in Sydney, which brought together an international audience of people who manage or administer Mac OS X and iOS installations.
Carroll said: “Presenting at these conferences has allowed me to share my experience implementing Mobile Device Management of iPads, Macs and Apple TVs at NorthTec. We began using MDM technology in its infancy and now have a wealth of experience to share with others who are just starting their MDM journey.
“The Wellington conference is a great opportunity to address people from throughout the NZ tertiary sector, who specialise in ICT management.
“X World is the largest Mac Administrator conference held in the Southern Hemisphere and presentations are viewed worldwide – it was an excellent opportunity to showcase NorthTec as a technology leader. I was overwhelmed by how many people have contacted me since I presented to find out more about how we’re using MDM and Apple devices at NorthTec.”
Sue Milner, ICT Manager for NorthTec, said: “Carroll is now one of the most highly qualified people in NZ in this specific area, having studied and passed her examinations to attain these credentials, which she applies at NorthTec to support our Apple technology environment. Our students and staff have benefitted hugely from the work that Carroll has done in this area.”
