Institutional Challenges• Islands of information, content and applications• Education systems are not like business systems – makes development and maintenance expensive• Poor sharing inside and outside the institution• Difficult to find the right content, data, and people
Food For Thought• Staff Perspective:- • How many systems do I need to login to in order to do my job? • Where do I find the information I require?• Student Perspective:- • How do I remember all the usernames and passwords? • What can I access easily via a browser and smartphone?
