Institutions are under greater pressure than ever to improve performance and compete on the world stage, while reducing costs and increasing efficiency. Cloud computing can help institutions drive down costs and drive up performance.
What you can do
Cloud computing allows data, software and computing power to be stored and accessed from a shared, remote server. It provides an institution with greater resources and IT capability than it could develop in-house, to the benefit of research, teaching and learning.
Before adopting cloud computing, you’ll need to familiarise yourself with:
- Safeguards to operate legally and protect information and privacy
- Cloud computing models
- Institutional strategy
- Costs and savings.
