Education Sector Challenges





Students have moved to remote or hybrid learning, but expectations are high for accessibility and a user experience to support student success.




Managing changes affecting data governance & compliance to avoid damaged reputation or significant fines from regulatory bodies such as the ICO.




The NCSC issued an alert to universities in 2020 following heightened ransomware attacks targeting the sector. Data security is a huge challenge.




Potentially lower in-take, especially overseas students due to COVID-19 & Brexit, coupled with extra technology & health & safety investments will affect revenue in the sector.




IT & particularly cyber security skills are in demand across all sectors. Unfortunately, the commercial sector offers salaries that attract those away from the public sector.





Pressures to leverage aging legacy systems that require limited specialist skills, whilst in-house teams continue to firefight, leaves little time to innovate.




As digital transformation demands change like never before, a unified enterprise architecture that keeps pace with strategic priorities is needed.
