How universities are paving the way for IT trends
LONDON, 5 November 2012 - Data Integration, the network and system integrator owned by Xchanging (LSE: XCH), today announced publication of a new whitepaper which examines the reasons why universities have taken the technology lead, how these trends are being mirrored in the corporate environment and how corporates can benefit from their experiences. It is available online here.
The whitepaper highlights how the changes in working practices, ubiquitous connectivity, the proliferation of 'smart' mobile devices and the evolution of our online world are causing huge and fundamental effects to the network and security landscape we see today and predict for tomorrow. Despite being perceived as lagging behind in technology adoption, universities have become an invaluable test-bed for emerging technologies and have already addressed many challenges that corporates are now facing.
Adrian Taylor, Chief Technology Officer at Data Integration commented, "A real challenge for IT managers is dealing with the threat of opening up their corporate networks to the plethora of mobile devices and providing flexible user access. This is a well-trodden path and over the last decade we've helped many leading UK universities deploy advanced IT strategies. Corporates will indeed benefit from hearing how universities have achieved this."
