Education + Hyperconverged Systems

Learn how information consumption by students has changed, what the future of education holds, and how large institutions like universities benefit from hyperconvergence.

IT Is Now an Essential Success Factor in Education

More than ever before, educational institutions such as universities, colleges and online learning centers have to be run as businesses. Filmed live in Berlin, this session offers insights into how a leading UK university and its transformation to being a ‘digital campus’, and how the nature of data and information itself is changing how teachers and students are interacting. The industry leaders and technology experts here share a clear vision of the future of education: it’s power by hyperconverged systems.

From profit margins to the reliance on marketing, government regulations to the need to attract the brightest and best professionals, education is truly an industry that needs to lead the way in IT, not get left behind. All of this takes place within the Idea Economy, the IT-defined era in which was all now live and work, in which the ability to turn an idea into a new product or service has never been easier, or the competition more demanding. The nature of information consumption for students has changed drastically, argues technology expert Alec Ross. He offers actionable insights into how hyperconverged systems create more transparency, allowing greater interaction between educators and learners, whilst also creating the ability to mine value and innovation from the data produced and stored in those relationships.
