Best Practices: Enabling Tomorrow's Tertiary Institutions — Digital Transformations Through Personalized Curricula, Collaborative Ecosystems, and Smart Campus Initiatives

3rd Platform technologies are bringing about higher education digitization and operations transformation. Together, these new blended environments offer seamless learning experiences and enhanced operational productivity to tertiary education users. "IDC Government Insights forecasts the overall IT investments in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) for the higher education sector will increase from US$8.7 billion in 2015 to US$10.4 billion in 2019, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2%. This illustrates a more cautious as well as maturing APEJ higher education IT spending landscape," says Shreyashi Pal, market analyst with IDC Government Insights. It is expected that such a holistic ecosystem will open up new tertiary pedagogy practices as well as operational excellence pursuits for the Asia/Pacific higher education sector in the coming years. A blended and collaborative ecosystem that enables the intelligent, instantaneous, and gainful exploitation of organizational knowledge is critical. "This is because the Asia/Pacific tertiary education sector will be increasingly focused on addressing the urgent need to increase cybersecurity priorities of digital assets, reduce IT costs, improve business-IT alignment, and leverage cutting-edge technologies for IT consolidation and streamlining of scarce ICT resources," Gerald Wang, program manager of IDC Government Insights adds. "By utilizing collaborative cross-functional ecosystems to resolve multifaceted challenges, Asia/Pacific tertiary institutions can gain greater productivity and efficiency as compared with siloed endeavors."Key transformation drivers such as the democratization and widening access to education; the internationalization of quality education through digital education initiatives; as well as the growing demand for personalization and widespread collaboration are expected to drive Asia/Pacific education IT investments in the next two to three years.
