Digital transformation has contributed to the change in the human desire for instant gratification. Meaningful, productive changes in technology have helped to create a unified “here and now” experience that is especially prevalent among the younger generation. Gone are the days when students had to look for Noticeboards around their university campus for postings about university news or wait until they got into the class to know their grades. Today university administrators make it their aim to provide a platform for students that’s revolutionizing learning, student experience and University’s IT ecosystem; for the students using multiple devices this means delivering integrated, mobile-enabled, service management tools that both improves the student experience and provides useful data for IT to ensure compliance and further integration of learning management system, course management system or library management systems.
