Accenture, Inc. - Portal Trends in Higher Education

Wednesday, January 1, 2003


In this session, Accenture will present results from a study on portal usage in higher education. Approximately 47 institution executives were interviewed, and nine focus groups were conducted, representing student and faulty user groups from the United States, Italy, and Australia. The study showed that portal development is evolutionary rather than revolutionary, and that improved service delivery, not cost savings, is the primary driver behind portal development.
