Academic institutions have always found ways to push boundaries. Today, the ability to rapidly adopt new learning, teaching, and business models have department heads conferring with campus CIOs to more aggressively pursue IT and business transformation initiatives that improve offerings while also reducing costs. Although once sufficient, siloed IT systems are no longer suitable to address new learner demographics and demands nor to thwart increasingly advanced cyber threats. The rise in non-traditional over traditional student enrollment and online learning as an integral part of the educational landscape requires IT teams at academic institutions to adopt more modern, integrated approaches that enable limitless learning. Key to success is
simultaneously reducing IT complexity across student learning, faculty teaching, advanced research, and collaborative work environments, as well as protecting student privacy, financial data and transactions, health services data, and the myriad of other sources of sensitive information in higher education.
