To stay in sync with their students and peers, university faculty need to coordinate a steady flow of coursework and research files. But sharing large databases and files can be a time-consuming process. That’s why nearly 81% of university IT leaders plan to boost cloud spending to provide faster access to resources, improved security, and easier data management. In part three of our Collaboration in Higher Education series, we’ll look at how faster sync can help facilitate coursework, lower costs, and strengthen data security.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018 and organizations (large and small) are currently preparing for the new directive.

At universities today, people rely on a wide range of specialized apps, from learning management systems to identity management solutions to research annotation tools.

We’ll soon live in a world where machines can accurately predict which deals are most likely to close, how long they’ll take to close, and what actions to take at each step of the buyer’s journey.
Collaboration and knowledge sharing are pillars of higher education. Instead of working in silos detached from other educational spaces, universities can leverage technology to break down barriers. This creates opportunities to drive efficiency, productivity, and innovation in higher education and research. Today, we’ll show you how IT admins can leverage Dropbox Education to improve visibility, control, and security on their campuses.
The rise of new productivity tools has changed how people collaborate, but at the cost of reduced transparency and lost time. Whether you’re creating, distributing, or retrieving content, you need a unified home that brings it all together in one place. That’s why we built the new DBX Platform to be the connective tissue for teams and businesses of all sizes. It enables teams to collaborate easily with industry-standard security—even when work spans across tools, apps, devices, and operating systems. Today, we’re introducing a unified suite of APIs and tools, and announcing new integrations with Atlassian,
