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. This is particularly true with the growing necessity to transition from on-campus learning to online learning. These rapid changes also raise uncertainty surrounding overall student data security. 

WWT offers a range of security-related services designed to safeguard student and institutional data. We address a breadth of related needs, including security tools assessment, security architectures, identity access management, risk and compliance, and executive-level visualizations.

Digital & Business Transformation 

Students increasingly expect their academic institution to offer cutting-edge capabilities and resources. WWT helps education institutions deliver by enhancing the student and campus experience by leveraging innovative use cases pulled from our experience with the next-generation workforce, the internet of things (IoT), business analytics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).

Distance Learning 

Thoughtful, informed IT solutions can have a dramatic impact on educational organizations, helping them optimize resources, conserve costs and drive student success. WWT has a long track record of helping institutions provide the tools and infrastructure to help students thrive. Every environment is different, so our custom solutions address everything from remote learning and collaboration, to data analytics and insights, to network and physical security.
