Today a key measurement of success for a primary/secondary schools is based on test results, graduation rates and college bound students' ratios. To achieve acceptable marks in these areas schools must become proficient in what HP calls the 'Business of Education'.
We have found that many primary/secondary schools are still running on a combination of legacy and new applications that are hosted on disparate proprietary networks which often cause: interoperability, visibility and security challenges. Network chaos like this makes it challenging to support contemporary learning environments such as media-rich interactive courses, distance learning, one-to-one computing, as well as essential services such as administrative services and emergency notification systems.
The HP Business of Education is a cost conscience strategy that enables an institution to balance the need to offer a mobile, 24x7x365 accessible network that supports real-time, collaborative learning and back office applications, while providing the 21st century tools their student need to adapt, function and excel in the next step of their life's journey. Below are two steps of the strategy that HP has assisted institutions in accomplishing:
A high-performance network is critical to enabling media-rich collaboration, real-time assessments that can help in developing individualized lesson plans.
