While higher education is undergoing seismic shifts, many institutions struggle with the limitations of legacy systems and outdated technologies. To explore some of these issues, University Business has conducted a subscriber survey about how colleges and universities are using core business systems including the ERP, SIS, Finance and HR, and the challenges that legacy systems can create.

Wake Forest University’s Information Systems Multimedia Technician Preston Neill understands the short life span of cables and adapters. With Ditto wireless presentation software installed throughout campus, those unreliable connectors are one step closer to extinction.

“Our goal is to ultimately stop supplying cables and adapters, because cables go missing and adapters break,” Neill says. “The cost to replace them, plus the manpower involved, is what we’re looking to avoid by having a wireless solution. We’re already getting fewer calls with Ditto.”

Who is today’s college student?

A new student is emerging. Fewer than half of today’s students fit into the 18- to 22-year-old demographic—now they are 18 to 80. Many students work part time or full time, or have families. They are digital natives. Ninety percent of them have smartphones and half have access to tablets 24/7. Just as when they shop, bank, travel or go out to eat, they have high expectations for higher ed. Many students need online course options. Colleges and universities need to change to meet these expectations in order to thrive.
