4 Ways to fix data management in education [SLIDESHARE]

Universities and schools support their students, teachers and communities the same way an enterprise supports its customers and employees. The only difference? IT resources in academic organizations are often far more restricted than those available to businesses. In order to protect end users from security risks, monitor budgets and provide a great user experience, IT teams in the education industry are expected to accomplish more with fewer resources at their disposal. It’s a tough assignment for anyone to bring home.

Luckily, the pros that comprise academic IT teams are resourceful. Every day, they apply tried-and-true data management strategies to their unique environments. They contain rapid unstructured data growth, prevent storage costs from skyrocketing and add visibility to stored information. As a result, their schools can better locate classroom assets and presentations, repurpose teaching materials, create detailed reports and tailor lesson plans to accelerate classes.

When schools are data-aware, educators save valuable time and energy while providing an improved student experience. Even better, IT teams secure sensitive data, quickly identify security risks and ensure their systems comply with industry guidelines, mandated in the academic industry by organizations such as the Department of Education.
