Key challenges for the education industry

Administrative costs and loads are rising. Institutions must acquire, process and store more data than ever before, and solve the associated infrastructure and data security questions. At the same time, stakeholders increasingly demand ease of use, integration and accessibility. Education entities must reconcile these requirements:

Data handling

From manual document verification to data entry and retrieval across systems, data handling is expensive, time-consuming and inefficient.

Staff & student identity

Verification of staff and student identity is fragmented, with manual record-checking and management costing hours of administrative work.

Infrastructure control

IoT allows entities to better manage their electricity, water and appliances, and to track and alert students. But fragmented campus utilities do not offer transparency, rapid data access, or fraud cover.

Data security

Educational institutions hold data on staff, students and other stakeholders. Much of this data is at risk and is an attractive target for bad actors.

User expectations

Stakeholders drive their feature and function expectations from consumer options, while education entities face additional compliance and security requirements.

Administration

Increasingly complex organizational structures, partnerships and larger data lakes require more and more time-consuming, costly administration work.
