2 Global Education Industry Agenda New Economic Environment and Education Stimulus Investments for Long Term Economic Sustainability The Education Continuum – A more integrated approach Smarter Classroom

3 Global Education Industry The global economy is in a different kind of downturn Traditional responses will not suffice Long and Difficult Unprecedented constraints on access to capital Decreasing consumer spending and property values leading to reduced revenues and operational funds Disruptions in supply chains reducing the number of viable vendors Increasing demand for public services as private sector alternatives become unaffordable Transformative Industries will be restructured New regulatory regimes requiring greater reporting and accountability Activist government will be engaged in local decision making Infrastructure investments to support transformation Typical cost management will NOT be enough Education institutions must rethink key processes to both improve student performance, as well as reduce costs – we need smarter approaches

4 Global Education Industry Succeeding in the New Economic Environment: Why Invest in Education? Education is recognized as a Critical Element to Economic Recovery … Economists have long recognized that the skills of the workforce are an important source of economic growth… policies that lead to broad investments in education and training can help reduce inequality while expanding economic opportunity. (Bernanke, 2007). Economic Stimulus Packages around the globe have targeted investments in Education : United States: $100B in learning, technology and school modernization European Union: $300B includes investments in education and retraining France: $33B in public sector including higher education Sweden: $1B in economic stimulus measures for the labor market and education Israel: $5.4B investments include education China: $586B, 2-year stimulus package. 4.4B to improve school buildings and add teaching facilities in central and western China. Australia: $1.1B investment in education source: IBM MI Data on Economic Stimulus 12/15/08

9 Global Education Industry 9 GMV 2H08: Education Traditionally, close to 50% of Technology Investments in Education have been directed to PCs Source: IBM MI Global Data 2H08 PCs are the most underutilized and the most difficult to manage IT assets in an institution. High systems management costs Low resource utilization Software compliance risks Supporting heterogeneous devices and operating system 47% 45%

10 Global Education Industry 10 IBMs Smarter Planet: A response to four critical questions Smart Work Smart Work Green & Beyond New Intelligence How can we work smarter supported by flexible and dynamic processes attuned to how students want and need to learn? How can we take advantage of performance data and the wealth of open materials to directly support student achievement? Does technology improve student outcomes? How do we create more flexible learning processes Our resources are limited I Need Insight I Need to Work Smart I Need Efficiency Dynamic Infrastructure How do we create an infrastructure that drives down cost, is intelligent and secure, and is dynamic to the learning needs of the institution? My infrastructure is inflexible and costly I need to respond quickly How do we drive greater efficiencies, deliver broader access to more students, and by take action now on energy, the environment, and sustainability? 10
