End-user analytics to help universities improve student learning experience
March 3, 2015 – Farnborough, United Kingdom – Nexthink®, the unique provider of End-user IT Analytics, today announced a partnership with Software2, a specialist in improving the student experience with software distribution and delivery for the education sector. The partnership integrates Nexthink’s end-user IT analytics with Software2’s range of solutions.
By adding Nexthink’s end-user analytics to its existing offerings, Software2 will enable universities to have a better understanding of how students are interacting with software and how applications are being utilized. The partnership will provide the industry’s most compelling IT offering for universities. End-user analytics will enable universities to improve service delivery, reduce license expenditure, strengthen IT security, as well as manage change more successfully across the university campus.
“Software2’s experience combined with Nexthink’s unique value proposition make an ideal partnership to take advantage of the opportunity that IT Operations Analytics (ITOA) presents for universities,” said Nathan Wyld, Channel Director Europe at Nexthink. “The education sector faces specific challenges in application virtualization and desktop provision, and we believe that our partnership can deliver real and measureable value to universities and improve the student experience.”
Tony Austwick, Software2 co-founder and virtualization guru says “Providing analytics and dashboards to a CIO or desktop manager at a university that is actually meaningful is a real challenge. Universities are under pressure to reduce costs and simplifying and understanding core data enables decisions to be made with more confidence. Nexthink will help us to improve the way in which universities manage and control applications and associated costs. It is key that universities compete for and retain students more effectively and providing better analytics will enable Software2 to more effectively support universities and community colleges.”
