The educational sector in India is undergoing a massive transformation driven by the changing needs and necessities of the stakeholders. Growing number of campuses and student enrolments, increasing adoption to automation and digital learning platforms are some of the visible changes seen today. Technology is a key contributor to this transformation enabling better connectivity (increasing broadband penetration and near universal mobile phone access), and growing affordability (cost effective products packaged in multiple innovative ways for schools, coupled with increasing spends on education by parents). Major initiatives by the government to modernize the education ecosystem will only catalyse and expedite this rapid transformation, similar to what happened with the corporate sectors just before the turn of the century.
