Strategies for Moving to the Cloud
As higher education continues to feel pressure to reduce costs and improve efficiency, campus IT environments are rapidly changing and the speed of cloud adoption is increasing. More schools are utilizing cloud technology to modernize systems, cut costs and analyze data to gain insights about more cost effective ways to run the institution. But, it is crucial that such an important decision is made strategically, and that cloud systems are adequately assessed to ensure they will meet the needs of the institution.
