Blackboard's Big Week: IBM Partnership and Higher One Acquisition

It announced a partnership with IBM, in which Big Blue will manage Blackboard’s 28 global data centers and cloud infrastructure. What the press release didn’t say is that the “cloud” in question is Amazon’s Web Services. Blackboard will also have access to IBM Watson’s cognitive computing technology. Blackboard has entered an agreement to acquire Higher One , a
payments technology provider for higher education. The acquisition will allow for integration of CASHNet with Blackboard Transact, which provides "cashless campus" technology.
