What is EdOps?

In today’s fast-paced business landscape, operational and technological practices like DevOps, FinOps, SysOps, and SecOps have emerged as essential drivers of success. These methodologies and organizational models enable organizations to become more agile, competitive, data-driven, and secure. While these practices hold immense value across various industries, the Education and Edtech sector possesses unique requirements that demand a specialized approach.

In response, we’ve coined the term EdOps, the practice that combines modern Ops best practices with a new dimension specifically tailored to the needs of Education. Collaboration, interoperability, handling vast amounts of non-technical data, scalability, operational efficiency, seasonability, and accommodating multi-stakeholders are just a few of the key considerations in the education industry.

The History of EdOps

Why the education sector needs EdOps

Traditional Ops models may not take into account and address the unique needs of the education industry. Those include not only visibility and optimization of cloud/technology cost structures but also the unit cost visibility and cost optimization for Cloud/Tech.

EDT&Partners is a consulting firm in the business of education with services for Product and Technology, case study is Learnosity, Santillana, Exams for Zoom, eFlow, Universidad Complutense

For example, do universities understand complex pricing models and know the cost per student of a tool or service? Do the different applications, software and tools at an educational institution work seamlessly together? Is there effective communication, information sharing and collaboration between departments to enhance the overall learning experience?

Similarly, the success and nourishment of businesses in the education sector, especially those that rely on technology, highly depend on the philosophy employed within an organization. A strong culture, matched by strong values and processes leads to the creation of strong teams, and thus success and continuity to the business. On the other hand, a weak culture and processes is a fast lane to failure.

EdOps is a philosophy, a set of frameworks, best practices, and recommendations, coined by EDT, that aims to improve the value of the business of education.

The key components and benefits of EdOps

FinOps is the practice of optimizing cloud financial management through collaboration, accountability, and cost transparency. FinOps practices include:

Benefit: Significantly reduce unnecessary expenses.

  • Compute Cost Optimization

Optimizing computing costs by exploring smarter purchase options, including choosing the right instance types. Instance types are pre-configured virtual machine packages with distinct characteristics such as memory, storage and price. Optimize costs by switching and choosing the right instance type as your needs evolve and change.

Benefit: Maximize cost-efficiency without compromising performance.
