Many educational institutions and organizations currently use legacy software application systems that are in dire need of being updated. When dealing with personally identifiable information (PII) for students and parents, admissions processes, reporting, and payment processing, it is critical that secure and modern systems are utilized to ensure the safety and continuity of educational work continues. Additionally, many programs funded by educational organizations provide support to underserved or underfunded communities (e.g., State Department of Education programs focused on providing nutrition or child care to those in need).
The technological strain on educational organizations – from the local to state level – was amplified in 2020 with the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in increased challenges in access to childcare, wi-fi for virtual learning, and online learning platforms as a result of school closures.
