This IDC Government Insights study analyzes how Western European education institutions are evolving in their use of industry-specific solutions to support teaching and administrative business processes. The objective of the research was to evaluate the levels of adoption and the types of industry-specific investments that education institutions are making to offer CIOs across the industry guidance in their application portfolio decisions.

"Although the vast majority of education IT executives plan to spend money across all industry-specific solutions, their plans are not all the same. Some of the education IT executives that responded to our survey are planning to simply maintain existing solutions; others are considering upgrades or enhancements; others are planning to replace obsolete solutions; and eventually some will have the requirement to buy net new solutions. Depending on their investment focus, they should execute on different application management priorities," said Massimiliano Claps, research director, IDC Government Insights.
