Higher education institutions need to innovate and adopt a data driven approach making more effective use of both technology and data
The ability to futureproof and gain agility is a key driving factor for innovation among almost two-thirds (63%) of higher education institutions in recent research by InterSystems.
Generation Z have set the standard for quick, instant, and real-time digital experiences. With banking services, video content, and online shopping available at the click of a button, these expectations have led students to expect the same levels of convenience in all areas of their lives, including from their higher education institution.
In order to best meet these evolving expectations, higher education institutions need to innovate and adopt a data driven approach - making more effective use of both technology and data.
Having the ability to draw actionable insight from the vast amount of data available will not only to create streamlined end-to-end processes eliminating operational gaps, but can also elevate the student experience as a whole.
However, being able to access all of this data in real-time can prove challenging, with disjointed and isolated systems working independently of each other. As a result, higher education institutions are now looking for new ways to bring all this data together in one place to provide them with the insights they need.
As student expectations evolve and create the risk of institutions falling behind, implementing a new IT architecture can provide the agility that is needed to help them to take the next step in their digital transformation journeys.
By seizing the opportunity for data innovation, institutions can deliver a seamless experience and futureproof the higher education experience for the student of tomorrow.
