Expanding into Australian Higher Education market through partnership with iSTRATEGY

Education technology developer Software2 has partnered with iSTRATEGY, led by former university CIO, to deliver AppsAnywhere into the Australian higher education market.

The move represents a huge growth opportunity for the Leeds-based company, with the Australian university and college market being similar in size to the UK, where Software2 has already achieved nearly 50% market share since being founded in 2009.

Having seen high levels of demand for AppsAnywhere – our application deployment and virtualization solution – across the UK and US – including notable institutions such as Durham University, Cornell University and the University of Michigan – we’re thrilled to partner with iSTRATEGY to improve the student experience and meet the demand of colleges and universities in this region.

David Collier, Director of iSTRATEGY and former CIO at Australia's Chisholm Institute of TAFE, adds: “AppsAnywhere is brilliant in its simplicity and delivers students with an experience they expect – any application, anytime, anywhere. We look forward to bringing this great solution to the Australian education market.”

In partnership with iSTRATEGY, Software2 will be working with higher education institutions across Australia to improve how software is delivered, in a way that the 21st century student expects from their learning experience. With an existing user base of 1.5 million worldwide, AppsAnywhere is well tried and tested. Mr Conway continues: “We approach application delivery in a much different way to other solutions. By bringing together all leading delivery technologies on the market, including Cloudpaging, Citrix, VMware and Parallels, we’re capable of bringing 100% of apps to students”.
