AWS re:Invent 2014 | (EDU202) Enterprise Cloud Adoption Strategies in Higher Education
We have reached a tipping point in enterprise cloud adoption in higher education institutions. Many large research universities have now taken on various cloud projects, touching almost every aspect of their enterprise. One excellent example of this is Harvard University. Over the course of the past 18 months, Harvard University IT (HUIT) has been investigating, developing, and implementing an enterprise-scale cloud adoption program. This session presents HUIT’s efforts to date, including approaches to vision, strategy, culture, education, staffing, and technology. The session also includes examples from other major universities. You’ll receive practical advice about how to begin the adoption journey, and you’ll learn about frameworks that can help you make decisions in the context of your own institutional environment.
