In June, we published a white paper entitled Education for a Smarter Planet – The Future of Learning. This thought leadership document has resonated well with our education clients and has provided the basis for executive level discussions about the value IBM can provide in transforming education systems around the world. These discussions have been timely as our clients have looked to invest in education with economic stimulus funds.
To continue the dialog with your customers, we have just released a Redguide, a business-oriented Redbook, called Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning CIO Report on Enabling Technologies. It provides an in-depth investigation into three enabling technologies that are transforming education and provides actionable guidance to aid CIO strategic and investment planning efforts. Specifically it discusses the value and role of consumer IT, open technologies, and cloud computing in the future of education. In addition, this guide provides real-world examples of the how these technologies work.
This guide includes the following topics:
— Executive overview
— Exploring the technologies that enable the educational continuum
— Consumer IT
— Open platforms
— Cloud computing
— Creating Education for a Smarter Planet
— A roadmap for enabling a future vision
