Positive Changes in IT Consumption

Capitalizing on Convergence

Mobility, cloud, and big data are each transforming education IT. Imagine what they can do when combined. That's the power of convergence, and it's changing the public sector landscape for the better.

Convergence brings together applications, systems, and processes to help meet current needs while preparing for future innovation. It's at the heart of the Internet of Everything (IoE), which connects people, processes, data, and things in new and innovative ways.

Public sector agencies recognize the IoE revenue opportunity, estimated at $4.6 trillion. The IoE can offer significant benefits, such as:

  • Economic growth
  • Reduced operational costs
  • Improved employee, staff, citizen, and student connectivity
  • Connected militarized defense
  • Enhanced citizen experience
  • Better student outcomes and safer learning environments

To capitalize on these benefits, government organizations need to build a technology roadmap that begins with converging their IT Infrastructures. Cisco can help you build that roadmap, and implement each step along the way.
