Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – global cloud computing market in education sector 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cloud computing market in education sector: Adobe Systems, Blackboard, Cisco, and Ellucian.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Dell EMC, Instructure, Microsoft, NetApp, Oracle, Salesforce.com, SAP

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increasing adoption of e-learning. E-learning has transformed the delivery of training and lectures in various schools and universities across the globe. The growing digitization and the mushrooming of startups offering MOOCs are expected to augment the demand for e-learning. This has created the need for faculties and teachers to use online platforms for uploading assignments, journals, notes, and tests. This, in turn, increases the need for safe and secure online platforms, thus augmenting the growth of cloud computing in education. E-learning systems include various components such as client server, database server, application server, and necessary hardware connected within a network. Cloud computing ensures the connections of these devices on the network. The technology provides access to three key requirements of implementing online learning, which include services, platforms, and infrastructure.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is reduced cost of ownership. The rising use of cloud services allows educational institutes to invest reasonably in supporting and maintaining the infrastructure needed to provide good-quality education. There is an upfront cost associated with obtaining and setting equipment, including new servers, software, or hardware. Cloud computing allows schools and colleges to upgrade their existing infrastructure with the latest technologies, without increasing their capital costs. In addition, staff expenses are reduced at a much higher rate. Significant costs associated with the upkeep and operation of the existing infrastructure are handled by third-party providers, thus reducing the burden on the IT staff. In this way, cloud computing reduces the overall cost of ownership.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is data privacy and safety concerns. Data privacy and safety concerns pertaining to the adoption of cloud-based services are the key challenges to the growth of the global cloud computing market in education sector. Educational institutes use cloud-based services to store confidential information about students and teachers. Some of these cloud services are often controlled by various solution vendors that do not give complete access to the educational systems, increasing the concerns of data theft or security breach. Moreover, there are increased chances of data manipulation, misuse, or information leaks due to the deployment of cloud-based service in educational systems. Abundant data and information related to students and is stored on cloud based software, which, could be misused or leaked if the cloud is not protected from malicious viruses or intrusions.
