Analyst firms like IDC, Forrester and Gartner are all in agreement that organisations of every ilk are being disrupted by the forces of digital technology: mobile, cloud, social and data analytics. Education, of course is not exempt, and according to Gartner vice president and distinguished analyst, Jan-Martin Lowendahl, traditional educational business models are being fundamentally challenged by digitalisation. “Social and economic pressures are forcing senior education leaders to rethink business models and consider a range of new technologies to bring down the cost of administering education institutions and scale the business,” Lowendahl says. “An increasing number of technical innovations and technology trends are emerging from within the industry, but most will emerge outside the industry, driven by major forces such as digital business and the consumerisation and industrialisation of IT.”
