The institutional data management experience
Universities manage an incredible volume of physical and digital documents and data that typically relates to the business and student learning. From administration (including personal information), business/compliance documents, and scholarships and grant information through to examination materials, textbooks, and course or event-related learning materials, images and recordings, the diversity and depth of data alone proses extraordinary risks.
Securing and monitoring documentation and data generated within the education sector is also time-consuming, significantly impacting on worker productivity. It is, however, a vital process.
In addition, universities are moving from a paper-based environment to a digital one. Although welcome, the conversion to a compliant records management system or university-supported business system adds to workloads and time spent on document processing and management activities.
