In the educational world, in order to address the goals and needs of administrators, educators and students, IT pros must have effective education systems management in place. In these uncertain economic times, colleges and K-12 school districts are looking to control costs wherever possible. Decision makers are examining all expenditures to see where to cut costs and install greater efficiencies.
Sometimes people just don’t understand the expertise, time and patience required in managing the IT infrastructure for an educational organization! Students, teachers and administrators are constantly deploying increasingly sophisticated devices – from notebooks to tablets to smart phones and beyond. On top of that, systems are often spread over a geographic area and users have varying levels of computing needs and experience. Education systems management IT professionals can get frustrated trying to perform a balancing act of providing for the needs of users, managing a complex IT infrastructure and staying within budget.
IT infrastructure is getting more complex as technologies such as virtualization and cloud computing continue to enhance education networks. These education management solutions can help facilitate greater collaboration and learning, but require more attention from administrators than traditional architecture. Unfortunately, many education IT professionals rely on a ‘siloed’ management strategy, deploying multiple point products that manage each network or layer separately.
The solution for these issues is strategic investment in education systems management technologies that can boost efficiency, save money and make IT an integral part of a district or university’s processes and objectives.
Managing IT infrastructure doesn’t have to be thankless, and it doesn’t have to be difficult or overly time consuming. By automating key IT tasks, administrators can reduce costs, decrease downtime, improve value and strategically align IT objectives with organizational goals. IT automation allows you to manage your IT assets more efficiently, helping you to improve productivity… elevating your reputation within your educational organization.
Would you like to efficiently manage hundreds of systems through one interface, eliminate the daily strain from your IT service delivery, automate your daily IT tasks, manage devices in multiple locations, increase the security of your IT environment and minimize the challenges of maintaining compliance?
