Analyst(s): Ross Dickinson


E-business spending makes up a small but rapidly growing portion of higher education IT spending. E-business has moved to the top of campus executives' agenda for the coming years -- though not yet to the top of spending priorities. The next five years will lay the foundation for a more profound transformation of higher education institutions in which the shift is made from adding "e" to traditional functions and business processes to reshaping those processes to take advantage of the potentials of the Internet.
