Technology is integral to education. Today’s students are digital
natives, training for careers that will almost all require some use of
tech or software. To meet modern education standards, schools have
to provide access to a wide variety of software, eTextbooks, cloud
services, and other digital resources.
Kivuto wanted a better understanding of the challenges this involves
for academic IT teams. How are digital licenses and entitlements being
managed on campuses today? What are the frustrations involved,
and what would it take to overcome them? How prepared are school
IT teams to face the rising challenges related to security, compliance,
and cloud licensing models?
To answer these questions, Kivuto partnered with University Business
to conduct a survey of nearly 200 technology leaders from universities
and colleges. Respondents were asked about the challenges and
complexities of managing and distributing academic digital resources
in a time of digital transformation.
