SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, 3rd December 2018 – CAUDIT and Ovum have announced an agreement to collaborate on strategic initiatives of common significance. Supporting IT leadership within the higher education and research sector through sharing global and local data and insights will bring substantial benefits to both organisations and universities across Australia and New Zealand.
“We’re excited about the opportunities this agreement presents to assist universities and research organisations in ANZ as they seek to transform ICT services for education and research in this digitallydisrupted era. Ovum’s data, market intelligence and reports on leading-edge practices will provide CAUDIT’s members with global strategic insights,” said Carsten Boeckmann, Ovum Regional Director for APAC. “Particularly, we believe that our Principal Analyst Partnering service stands out for its value in assisting IT leaders to address their university’s strategic challenges”, added Boeckmann.
Following the signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at CAUDIT’s Spring Members Meeting in Melbourne on October 18, Ovum will provide access to current research reports and an initial exchange of IT benchmarking and project priority data will be made, enabling both organizations to better advise CAUDIT member organisations on how best to align their professional capabilities, services and systems to meet present and future challenges.
“This new partnership with Ovum promises to be a valuable engagement with CAUDIT’s members through the reciprocal sharing of global and local data, insights and regular briefings. As demonstrated at our 2018 Autumn and Spring Members Meetings, Ovum can build on CAUDIT’s existing data and provide additional thought leadership targeted at our member’s priorities. This is only the tip of the iceberg of what is achievable under this partnership through the provision of webinars and special ‘concierge service’ for members,” said Anne Kealley, CEO CAUDIT.
The agreement also makes provision for CAUDIT members to engage with Ovum’s ongoing support packages which have been designed to meet the requirements of the Higher Education sector.
