Education IT Poised for Growth — THE Journal

August 18, 2010

Education IT Poised for Growth — THE Journal.

So where are education institutions putting their tighter resources? According to Gartner’s Sood, “Education organizations are making some tangible investments on two fronts: areas of IT to reduce long-term management costs and broadband/mobility services.”

He listed five areas toward which IT departments in education are shifting their focus, cited here nearly verbatim from an e-mail communication:

  • IT cost optimization;
  • Consolidation/rationalization;
  • Cloud-based services, particularly SaaS;
  • Broadband and wireless services; and
  • Content management.
