Higher Education presents a unique and constantly changing challenge for IT departments. The administration of facility-owned assets such as enrollment and personal student information that used to be IT's sole responsibility is now only a small part of the picture. As technology replaces traditional textbooks, keeping classroom and lab devices up-to-date with deployments and updates becomes a daunting challenge, even for the most progressive of IT administrators. Most students are now bringing their own computers and devices to campus. Troubleshooting minor issues, routine maintenance and loading new software and updates is now a service that universities are offering to students, free of charge. All this leads to "A Perfect Storm" for IT administrators who are already dealing with tight budgets and reduced staff.
