The education sector, like most, experienced unrivalled change and transformation during recent years, as the industry was forced to innovate in order to support their consumer.

Recognising the perceived barriers faced, and considering the varying perspectives about change strategy and business model innovation has been a key focus for technology leaders across the sector.
