It's time to rethink key processes
In the current economic downturn, traditional cost management strategies are not enough. Educational institutions must rethink key processes and consider smarter approaches to reduce operational costs in order to direct more resources to instruction and research. Investments in education must be focused on ensuring lasting transformation. Smart administration for education from IBM can help educational institutions position themselves for the future.

Financial systems with alerts. Video surveillance and security systems with rules-driven alerts. Energy management systems with sensors. Smart administration is an instrumented solution, using sensors and alerts to collect and monitor operational data directly from originating sources anywhere on campus.
The solution is also interconnected, linking functions across the educational system through the use of the interoperable assets of a service oriented architecture (SOA).
