WWT brings the tools and expertise to help educational institutions focus on student success in the classroom and beyond. From strengthening academic networks and delivering high-quality, personalized experiences, to expanding access to university resources regardless of location, all while maintaining the highest levels of security and compliance. Our deep bench of education technology experts combined with our best-of-breed solution partnerships provide educators and institutions with solutions ranging from secure and collaborative remote learning to human capital innovation using enormous volumes of contextually rich data to achieve greater student outcomes on campus and beyond.

Security Transformation

Security Transformation

As the technical and digital maturity of the population continues to grow, the pressures and expectations for academic institutions to modernize their infrastructure are only increasing, particularly with the growing necessity to transition from on campus to online. With these rapid changes also comes growing uncertainty surrounding overall student security. WWT offers a range of security-related services designed to help ensure student and institutional data protection. We address a breadth of related needs, including security tools assessment, security architectures, identity access management, risk and compliance, and executive-level visualizations.

Digital and Business Transformation

Students increasingly expect their academic institution to offer cutting-edge capabilities and resources. WWT helps education deliver on that expectation, enhancing the student and campus experience by leveraging the most critical of innovative use cases including next-generation workforce, Internet of Things (IoT), business analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
