Colleges and universities are under pressure from demographic and technological changes. And in theory, digital transformation could ease some of that pressure. Technology can bridge the gap between increased student expectations and decreasing funding. It can also augment the teaching experience. Technology drives insight from student behaviors to provide a more personalized learning experience and enables deeper student engagement.
However, providing all these experiences leads to increased demand on central IT. Like in every industry, IT in higher ed needs more capacity to deliver technology solutions to the entire business than it has the resources to provide. How are major universities solving these problems?
Find out how MIT is leveraging Anypoint Platform to improve the student experience by providing mobile and web access to student data and automating previously manual processes (e.g. class registration) and building MIT built an application network to drive real-time integration across on-premises enterprise systems (Oracle, SAP), SaaS student life (Maxient) and spend management (Coupa) systems.
Increasing IT capacity at universities is increasingly important, given declining student enrollment and budget pressures. Download our Digital Transformation in Higher Education white paper to learn successful strategies to help IT deliver on the promise of digital transformation.
