Asset management for education

What began with a universal reader in a one-room schoolhouse has evolved into education organisations that manage the gamut of physical and IT assets from books to buses, cafeteria trays to computers. As facilities and equipment grow more complex and interconnected, schools need asset management to be more sophisticated too.

IBM Business Analytics software for education

A complex world demands skilled and knowledgeable citizens. Yet schools still struggle to graduate students with the basics. Rising costs, shrinking funding, structural silos, little insight: all are factors. To find a smarter way, education is turning to technology to overcome these barriers and ensure students the learning they need to thrive and contribute.

Enterprise risk management for higher education

Take a proactive approach to managing risk across your organisation. Insurance claims, frequency of incidents and credit ratings are all tied to your organisation’s approach to risk management. IBM can help you uncover patterns to improve your risk management strategy.

Innovation in research

Basic and applied research, clinical studies and grant funds management all require an optimised infrastructure and a smarter approach to the processes that enable new discoveries and knowledge. Learn how getting smarter about research processes can lead to breakthroughs and economic development.

Smart administration

Improving the quality of education. Increasing access. Reducing costs. In a time when funding is declining, educational institutions must continue to focus on these key challenges. Smart administration for education can help institutions improve performance and operational outcomes in a meaningful, efficient and transparent way.
