We plan to use this forum to discuss some of the technology trends that are impacting higher education, and provide a medium through which you can ask questions and share your challenges and successes.
So that we can begin to get to know each other, we thought we’d tell you a bit about our organization and our team. SSD Technology Partners has been supporting the data input and management needs of higher education since 1995 with its proprietary software Axiom. Over the years our solutions have evolved to provide platform-independent Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) capabilities that are compatible with leading Student Information Systems. We also make it easy to create online forms for collecting and uploading data.
We understand that colleges and universities face a unique set of challenges as they attempt to attract the best and brightest students, provide a high-quality education experience, and meet data security and regulatory requirements. Axiom helps schools address these challenges with solutions that collect and validate student data and integrate disparate data sources.
Now that you know a little about us, we’d like to set the stage for our conversations here. We plan to discuss leading technology trends in the higher education space, including next-generation learning tools, online teaching and collaboration, and administrative and operational systems. We will also focus on the student experience, and how colleges and universities can provide an end-to-end technology platform for managing every aspect of student life.
If there are other topics you’d like us to address, please let us know. We are continually looking for ways to better support your needs and goals, and this blog is part of that mission. We hope that it becomes a useful resource that you will return to again and again.
