Implementing Scale for Core Commodity Services through the Cloud and Collaboration

Wednesday, October 01 | 9:00AM–9:50AM | Meeting Room W209A/B
Session Type: Professional Development

Innovation in research, scholarship, and teaching and learning is a goal that most institutions of higher education strive to achieve. However, realignment of budgets and, in some cases, declining funding challenge IT leaders to be increasingly efficient and more creative in conserving or consolidating capital, operating, and personnel expenses. In this session, we will explore the confluence of benefits to be achieved from the massive scale of cloud computing and collaborations for sharing across the full range of the academic enterprise including infrastructure, software application development, identity and access management, research computing, help desk support, security monitoring and response, and business continuity.
