Stronger Together: The Benefits of Shared Technology Environments
Best practices in building common platforms.
- Shared technology environments enable institutions to pool resources and drive innovation.
- Standardized and modernized business practices can introduce new efficiencies.
- Common platforms deliver improved student outcomes and experiences.
Over the last decade, shared technology environments have become an increasingly attractive option for state systems of higher education seeking to drive digital transformation at their member institutions.
As more and more systems begin to explore the advantages of these common platforms, this Ovum white paper delves into three states – California, Colorado and Connecticut – where shared technology environments are being employed to achieve the key strategic objectives of higher education’s digital transformation.
While each approach is as unique as the system implementing it, all three case studies feed common themes that provide the reader greater insight into the best practices that are creating new efficiencies and enriching student experiences. At the same time, these case studies provide a candid look into the technical and cultural questions that a system must consider when embarking on a shared technology journey.
