FREMONT, CA: Automation has made its way into the educational sector, just as it has in other businesses. Educational organisations, particularly schools, have been using ERP software to close the gap between teaching and learning. This new-age technology is projected to become the new standard for schools in the future. According to Mordor Intelligence, the global Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) market for schools will be worth USD 8.05 billion in 2020. It is expected to reach USD 18.82 billion by 2026, with a 16.2 per cent compound annual growth rate. As per the report, the Asia Pacific area, particularly India, is the fastest-growing market. It says that schools are eager to get on board with ERP and that this trend is likely to continue in the future. 

 Currently, this cutting-edge technology is helping to provide smooth school management by eliminating job redundancy and developing a centralised database system. Schools can use ERP software to operate with a data-driven strategy and manage operations remotely while keeping things running smoothly. Students benefit from this approach, but parents also have the opportunity to become more involved in their children's school lives. They are kept up to date on their child's academic development. Learning modules, educational material, assessment of a child's progress, report card generation and analysis, good communication between schools and parents, and GPS tracking of school transportation have all been effectively automated.

Gone are blackboards. However, education has become more engaging and interactive as institutes, and ed-tech platforms could experiment with digital content. They can provide holistic learning experiences by combining academic knowledge with hands-on learning. In this way, education is becoming a more enjoyable experience.

The idea of education has evolved into a concept that can be applied anywhere and anytime. Students can now learn at their own pace and at their leisure. Technology has made all of this possible. The use of technology has aided in bridging the gap between parents and teachers. Newer technologies have played a significant role in facilitating remote and hybrid learning. They are reshaping the Indian educational scene and will continue to do so in the future. The educational sector will progress and thrive in the coming years with technological advancements in this expansion.
