Too Many Tools, Too Many Vendors: The Higher Education Service Delivery Dilemma
Today’s Higher Education IT teams face a diverse range of institution-critical tasks, such as addressing high-level service assurance demands and troubleshooting requests associated with supporting a tech-savvy population of students and educators as they apply to schools, register for classes, distribute agendas, and submit completed assignments.
IT must also provide real-time performance management of network, application, and cloud services - in wired and wireless environments - to ensure student access to higher education and SaaS Cloud Computing applications (e.g. Learning Management Systems (LMS) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) services), as well as coordinating delivery of multi-vendor voice, video, and messaging applications in Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C) environments. Adding to the challenge, IT is under enormous pressure to safeguard the information infrastructure from potential cyber-attacks.
The Single-Vendor Service Assurance Approach: A Higher Education Imperative
Higher Education IT departments must manage diverse IT staffing profiles, as well as safeguard medical research, student payment and privacy information, while also supporting future go-to-market technology initiatives. To achieve these mission-critical goals, IT needs a “one-vendor,” technology-agnostic approach. This means implementing a comprehensive service assurance solution that can help to:
- Maximize IT staff efficiency across all service assurance activities, ranging from real-time monitoring and predictive analysis, to troubleshooting and capacity planning
- Increase departmental cross-collaboration in IT service assurance activities
- Reduce the sprawl of silo-specific IT tools to monitor network, application, voice, video, and messaging performance
