When you make any investment in technology you are investing in a living thing. The pace of development of technology in today’s world is such that improvements and alterations are seemingly continuously available to software, hardware and infrastructure. And with the increasing utilization of the cloud, platforms and tools can be upgraded “on the fly” by the providers without the end users having to break stride. This also enables product developers to be much more receptive to user feedback and incredibly agile when it comes to implementing features and functionality based on these suggestions.

Anyone investing in technology for their school, college or university has the added responsibility of building an environment that will shape the learning paths of hundreds or even thousands of young people. Therefore, it’s important to know not only what the current capabilities of technology are, but where it’s going in the future.
