Education Sector Challenges

 

 

REMOTE LEARNING

 

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

 

COMPLIANCE

 

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

 

CYBER THREATS

 

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

 

REDUCED BUDGETS

 

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.

 

HIGH STAFF TURNOVER

 

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.

 

 

SKILLS SHORTAGE

 

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

 

INTEGRATION & COMPLEXITY

 

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