Effective data management is the critical aspect of any organization and the ability to access and the ability to communicate are the key factors that decide the efficiency in data management. Accessibility and communication have been the age old issues till technology invasion in all fields had revolutionized everything.
For instance, consider the banking system of the olden days wherein there was no accessibility and one had to stand and wait in the lengthy queues to proceed with the financial transactions. It was the same case with railway ticketing as well, one had no accessibility to it and there was no communication platform that could fill the void. But, with the advent of technology, everything is now changed and the banking transactions and railway ticketing can be accessed from anywhere across the globe with internet and web interface being the medium for communication. This is how technology impacted the world and not leaving the educational field, technology had its manifestation in that realm too.
Before talking about data management in schools, it is very important for one to know what data in school pertains to. The data in the school includes information about students, attendance, grades, transport, fees, homework, accounts etc. The traditional method of data management did not guarantee the easy flow of data and it often ended up in inaccuracy. The manual process, however, provided no accessibility to the data and the process was entirely dependent on the end user operating the process. Student information, attendance, marks and accounts were not accessible by the school staff excluding the authorized person. If any information required, it was solely dependent on the authorized person and in a case of his absence or system failure, it was a complete chaos.
After technology took its place in the field of education, school management software came into the limelight ensuring easy flow of data. The data can now be accessed by any person i.e., teaching/non-teaching faculty and one do not need to be a tech-savvy to operate the school management software. The life cycle of the student, starting with the enquiry and ending with the TC, technology handles the entire process and school management software being the pilot source.
The school can communicate to all its stakeholders in a single context and the stakeholders can access data whichever they want, which was not possible earlier. Student information or attendance or grades can be accessed from a website or mobile applications and fee payment is the easiest thing one could think of. Online fee payment is the current trend that has enhanced many parents to pay the fee from the point of their comfort and flexibility. The accessibility is not restricted to the place, person or time constraints. Making the process more feasible, the accessibility and communication can be done through offline either.
