Key Findings

As EdTech spend reaches unprecedented levels, organizations are gearing up for an accelerated adoption of on-campus technology. This is driving many Higher Ed institutions to find ways to improve IT maturity and streamline internal processes to manage the influx of demand. 

With key findings from the Pulse Study, we get a clearer understanding of top challenges facing Higher Ed IT. And while resource constraints top the list in terms of organizational challenges, the solution for many is a commitment to improved processes and technology.
