Transforming Higher Ed with Cloud Technology: Smoothing the Transition to the Cloud

Since the ’90s, cloud computing has evolved and made its way into organizations and industries of all types, including higher education.

The subject has become so important in higher ed, that EDUCAUSE has a Working Group dedicated to the topic, and even a conference track this year on “Innovating in IT Infrastructure and Cloud-based IT Environments.”

In this EdTech Times series, Transforming Higher Ed with Cloud Technology, we speak with higher ed tech leaders who have successfully transformed their institutions to the cloud, companies providing cloud-based solutions for schools and research, and consulting organizations helping institutional leaders navigate this evolution effectively.

In this first episode, we speak with technologists from Huron who specialize in cloud transformation for higher ed.

This episode is brought to you by Huron.

Huron is a global professional services firm with an extensive history in higher education. For nearly two decades, Huron has provided consulting services for over 500 educational institutions, including all 100 of the top research universities in the United States.

This year at EDUCAUSE, you can learn more about what Huron does by attending the panel, Reshaping the Future: A Guide for Preparing Your Cloud Migration, or by visiting booth 1552. And of course, you can always visit
