Common Pain Points of Digital Education Transformation

Digitalization is not an easy thing. Lack of resources and budgets will become a barrier to realize digital education and lag in IT performance will also drive transformation in a dilemma. 

Lagging IT Performance

The educational resource platform includes student info system, professor management system, learning applications, the material center usually been compromised by the heavy workload at the peak time.​

Tight Budgets

Education funding shows a downward trend. How to find the balance between supporting students in digital education and limited budget?

Limited Resources

Staff resources should be implemented in helping students successfully learning in a digital education environment. How to save the resources on more critical missions instead of machine maintenance and upgrade?

Digitalized Complexity

Hard to manage by one or a few servers? Install software and hardware one by one to allocate the resources for students is time-consuming. Allocate resources become a barrier on the way to digitalized education transformation. 

Needs and Challenges for Digital Education Transformation

During Digital education transformation, there are some needs and challenges that will be faced. How to fulfill those needs for higher education, and how to deal with the challenges become an important elements among this period.

Modern Solutions for
Digital Education Transformation

Data is the key to education success in both teaching or researching sessions. To Store Unexpected data growth without compromise:

  • High-speed performance to follow machine learning lessons
  • Stable performance help the researcher to work efficiently even during peak time
  • Data center with high-speed data I/O, making the data center a driver for students' success

More remote learning lessons and virtualized classes are applied for building up the digital campus. How to manage digital material and courses is becoming an issue:​​

  • Increasing remote learning and make the storage be the powerful assistance to leverage the overall learning performance​​
  • Virtualized classroom delivers with AFA performance, making the lessons going smoothly without disruption​​
  • Stable solutions needed to make sure every student taking great lessons from home
  • Video streaming is the core element, high-speed solution become the key to work in school from home period

Creative assets should be well-protected for tomorrow's thought leader. However, the education fund is decreasing gradually every year. How to allocate the resources to ensure data safety and simplify the IT process on budget in order to reduce CAPEX: 

  • VDI Back On Track, VDI Implementation to manage the scattered resources more efficiently
  • Storage that requires less management and maintenance to save IT budget for the long term
  • Data backup and data protection system make campus safer
  • Storage solutions to preventing from any Ransomware attack
