SUPPORTING THE 21ST CENTURY CAMPUS using BI, SOA and 24*7 Managed Services - Higher Education Seminar - 25th of June in Reading Friday 6 June 2008 PDF Print Executive and Senior Management IT teams already know that the UK is now operating in an increasingly competitive environment. Dramatic growth in UK student numbers, competition for foreign students from overseas institutions and the focus on academic research all pose significant challenges, but also increase opportunities. Only the fittest will thrive and survive. Institutions can now innovate their student offerings and enhance their business processes by maximising the full of potential of their current IT investments. This new approach is leading to significant service improvements and enabling a 24*7 service culture to be created. The Higher Education Seminar is being driven by three organisations, who are experts in their respective fields and already provide services to the Higher Education sector.
