Higher education for future leaders, whatever their focus, business or technology, must deepen its understanding of these trends by examining existing and emerging segments, associated key market players and IT investment priorities.
To do that, universities and other providers of learning must also change. Learning itself, together with auxiliary processes, should leverage the new possibilities driven by technological change for the benefit of students and staff. A wide range of solutions, from AI-powered antiplagiarism software to AR/VR in-class devices, is available on the market, necessitating a decision in terms of what to use and how to integrate individual solutions to fit comprehensive learning enhancement strategies.
As a leading provider of market intelligence and advisory services for the information technology and telecommunications markets, IDC has developed:
- Dedicated offerings to support students and academics, helping them to gain insight into the fast-evolving IT industry
- A specialised education-focused practice, helping providers of education to make sense of all the options available to enhance their offerings and improve their operational efficiency with the help of digital transformation solutions
IDC has developed a robust methodology to help providers of higher education to orient themselves in the trending topics of digital transformation. With IDC's help, providers of higher education can assess their maturity in terms of the overall smart campus and take advantage of IDC's taxonomy, which splits transformational efforts into well-defined project types.
