Steps on the Cloud Migration Journey Webcast
On-Demand: Event Posted June 4, 2020
The sudden change to remote working and learning has created tremendous challenges over the past months. First hand, we have all experienced what it means to be in a completely online world. Performance, reliability, scalability--how do you provide all that to your entire organization on 3 days’ notice? The Cloud is a good solution. It alleviates the pressure on you to constantly maintain an expensive infrastructure, is known for its reliability, and can quickly scale up to meet the needs of all of your students, faculty, and staff.
