Education and Research

Esteem has worked with education establishments since 1985. Throughout this time we have developed an in-depth understanding of the sector and the positive impact that technology has on achieving key education and research targets.

Our longevity in education means that we understand the technology issues and pressures experienced in the sector. We have experience of how to manage and embed IT infrastructures into existing environments or create new systems and solutions that support bespoke needs.

Our education IT solutions focus on:

Improving the student experience

Esteem understands that students rely on effective, available and mobile learning technology.

Reducing infrastructure costs and improving efficiency

Get more out of your infrastructure investments through improved utilisation rates, lower cost of ownership, reduced energy consumption and greater sustainability.

Enabling effective research

Our High Performance Computing solutions help establishments to stay ahead in research through faster data processing, handling increasing volumes of data and integrating the latest technologies.

High Performance Computing (HPC)

We deliver custom-made High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters to drive and meet research aims and objectives. Esteem was recently awarded the HPC framework for the University of Leeds. The framework spans a four year period.

Our advantage is being able to work with a number of different vendors to help you find the most appropriate solution for your organisation. We hold some of the highest accreditations with the following vendors:


Esteem is a partner on the SSSNA Framework with DellEMC. This framework enables universities to reduce their buying cycle and increase the speed of deploying IT projects.

Esteem also has been awarded a place on the Technology Products government framework. The framework enables education providers, amongst other public sector institutions, to procure IT hardware through a simplified buying cycle. Esteem has also been successful on the Technology Services government agreement, winning a place on 9 out of 11 lots of the framework.

Esteem is also an approved G-Cloud supplier within the Specialist Cloud Service category of the government G-Cloud framework. We design and build private, public and hybrid cloud platforms on behalf of public sector organisations.
