Get educated on HP's 'Business of Education'

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.
