Avoiding Technology Ping-Pong: Finding the Right Place on the Ed Tech Continuum

When it comes to selecting technology, higher education leaders often face a choice between acquiring a single solution that spans across multiple functional areas – many of which we classify in our Tech Landscape as college-wide/enterprise-wide IT backbone solutions – or selecting solutions that address a single functional area.
