A study into feasible and desirable shared IT services for universities and colleges in Scotland, supported by a road map and business cases for implementation.
All 19 Scottish HEIs participated in an extensive online survey assessing appetite and detailing interests from infrastructure to software applications and shared knowledge services. Scotland’s Colleges partnered in the process, with over 20 further education providers making contributions. Five workshops and over 20 stakeholder interviews validated the final set of options for the Road Map.
Based on this evidence, the report proposed a phased Road Map that includes seven priority opportunities (some for early wins and others with a focus on longer term gains) that would yield significant benefits, including both cashable savings and strategic synergies.
