Education


The "Learn, teach and measure" value chain encompassing students, teachers and parents is undergoing radical changes due to technology ramifications and government regulations. Rapid technological developments, ease of access to the Internet, introduction of smart phones, social networking and online repositories are opening new avenues for content delivery in the form of eLearning. This coupled with adoption cycles and increase in textbook prices is altering the dynamics of this market.

In order to meet the continued and evolving demands of our clients and capture emergent opportunities, Accely has established a Strategic Education Technology line of business.  This role and group will focus on optimizing customer technology portfolios while aligning initiatives to core business strategy.

Strategy that happens organically will fail.  To avoid this, Accely has developed a practice discipline that maps people, process and technology to the realities of the education enterprise capable of ensuring near, mid and long term goals and objectives are met through aligned and executed engagements while delivering measurable positive business impact.

In an environment that is highly variable, opportunities for; efficiency, cost of sales improvement and innovation emerge, ebb and flow with a speed unlike any other component of the business and institutional environment. These opportunities and challenges when dealt with in an ad hoc manner result in redundant spending, increased integration challenges and sometimes insurmountable exit costs that result in missed market opportunities, loss of revenue, and industry credibility.  Independent of the position in the education value chain, Accely has the ability to support the most complex challenges ranging from existing portfolio optimization, business process assessment and design, market scanning and recommendation, to technology innovation strategy and open source software utilization.

Education and traditional technology leaders are consistently called upon to establish architectural frameworks that deliver on today’s needs and are sufficiently sturdy to withstand the inevitable onslaught of future, yet unknowable requirements.  Accely supports our clients with deep industry expertise and enterprise architecture experience to understand and articulate emergent and existing business needs while aligning current and planned technology investments with these needs.
