When The University of Tampa (UT) decided to undertake a technological transformation for its students, faculty, and staff, a cloud first strategy was a key approach. Moving in this direction offers enhanced security, high availability, and a more modern user experience. Additionally, the vision was to replace highly customized shadow systems and paper-driven processes with a configurable, scalable, and cloud-based solution. This strategic move paid off when UT went 100% remote overnight, went live with their new SIS, and registered students for Fall 2020 --all without missing a beat.
