Leveling up Campus Technology: Interview with John Hrusovsky, The Ohio State University

This podcast episode is part of the series, Transforming Higher Ed with Cloud Technology.

When you back up your phone to the cloud, it might take a few minutes. Maybe an hour. But when you’re overturning the legacy technologies of an entire academic institution, with admissions departments, HR departments, financial departments, and more, it can be a much more complex process that requires sufficient time and planning.

While on-premise systems have been standard in the past, more and more universities are transitioning to enterprise cloud solutions to simplify and standardize business processes, and to pave the way for tech innovation in the future. It’s no longer a question of whether universities should transition to the cloud. It’s simply a matter of when.

So how do universities go about the cloud transformation process in the simplest, most efficient way possible—while keeping staff, faculty, and students happy?

To find out, we spoke with John Hrusovsky, Executive Project Director for the Enterprise Project at The Ohio State University. Listen in to the full podcast episode (or read below) to learn more.
