The competition to attract and retain students is fierce. And, with more choices stemming from new learning models, a college must be able to offer the latest content delivery methods on any platform.

Higher education CIOs have to grapple with serving forward-looking, technology-hungry customers with outdated systems that require constant investment and maintenance and cannot always adapt to the needs of the institution and its students.

There’s a better way to deliver the technology students want and the information systems your institution needs without costly hiring or outsourcing. Low-code application development with OutSystems can provide a successful end-to-end digital transformation that addresses all the new challenges of modern education.

In 2018, Gartner reported that most student information systems in use today are built on outdated technology that is hampering innovation. Replacing these systems does not have to be expensive and disruptive to your organization and students, however.

With the OutSystems platform, you can bring your student information system into the 21st century by integrating apps into any legacy student information system or a custom built back-office solution with the click of a button.
