Managing high-value software in edtech
Yet, while there’s significant investment into new education and learning capabilities for students, this doesn’t always translate into additional money put aside for the networks or software needed to make that education possible.
As a result, the need for IT managers in educational institutions to do more with less has never been greater. Increased connectivity expectations from students and faculty alike, together with the ongoing battle to lower operating costs in order to help grant money go further, is putting renewed pressure on these individuals to introduce more flexibility across the board. Some of this is straightforward and can be resolved with minor upgrades to IT infrastructure and computing power, but not every issue is as easy to address, particularly for universities or colleges involved in research.
