New Partnership Provides Higher Education IT With Exciting Integration-as-a-Service For Cloud Migration And Digital Transformation Initiatives.

Lingk Inc., the leader in recipes for agile integrations, and Higher Digital, the leading digital strategic advisor to higher education institutions, today announced a new partnership to allow higher education CIOs to fully outsource their integration needs. Integration-as-a-service “IaaS” powered by Lingk includes experts in enterprise architecture, education system domain specialists and integration professionals for outsourcing integrations. IaaS also includes Lingk’s cloud-based integration platform for building and maintaining all integrations. Higher Digital brings its vendor agnostic advice and expertise in enterprise architecture, strategy, delivery, and execution to the mix, helping to align stakeholders’ goals and build processes that will sustain improvements moving forward.

Higher Education institutions of all sizes struggle with understanding how to keep existing systems up to date, while increasing technology innovation and improving the digital experience for all stakeholders. This partnership combines the expertise of two companies to provide the independent digital transformation advice and services that will help lower cost and improve the overall digital health of these institutions.

Higher Education IT using IaaS powered by Lingk can quickly implement their integration strategy of bridging current on-premise systems with new cloud systems. Common projects for IaaS include migrations and integrations with CRM, SIS, LMS and Data Warehouses.

“With IaaS powered by Lingk, we are excited about our partnership with Higher Digital to provide higher education CIOs the choice to fully outsource their integration projects, freeing them to focus on their core digital transformation initiatives.” said Paul Roberge, CEO, Lingk.

”Higher Education IT departments are struggling to meet the increasing demands of data availability and seamless interoperability between the many vendors and systems that are required to run a modern institution today. Our partnership with Lingk combines two new, innovative services that lower the cost and complexity of digital transformation for each institution while freeing up valuable and limited IT resources to address more important enterprise architecture priorities,” said Wayne Bovier, CEO, HIGHER DIGITAL.
