Cloud computing technologies hold great promise for colleges and universities – they can improve student engagement, advance research, streamline operations and eliminate barriers to access, delivery and collaboration.

The question is, how to get started with cloud? Most educational institutions can’t ignore their significant IT investments and simply “rip and replace” with new software systems. One way to start is by migrating the key applications that power both front and back office environments, such as Oracle PeopleSoft or Banner by Ellucian.

Join us for a webinar May 30 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET as we explore how colleges and universities are using a “lift and shift” incremental approach to modernize their systems and take advantage of the agile and innovative properties of the cloud.

We’ll also discuss:
• Lift and Shift in practice: How the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine is migrating Banner by Ellucian to the Oracle Public Cloud.
• How cloud enables both large and small institutions to augment and elevate existing services while thoughtfully addressing new cloud-based opportunities.
• Why Oracle’s Autonomous Database Cloud can help IT leaders prevent human error, reduce costs and mitigate cybersecurity issues.
