Higher education

The Challenge:

A 7×24 operation with large files that need to be shared and notated by students and teachers. Online content must be on-demand and viewable by all devices and editable. Educational regulations as well as Program IP requirements mean that personal security compliance is high priority.

Client:
Continuing Education group of large college in North America

Workforce:
4000 staff spread across about 30 faculties and administration

Sharing content in education doesn’t need big cloud expenses or new servers

Today’s educational institutions have to collaborate and share data. Online content interaction is critical for enriched learning. Colleges and Universities need on-demand file sharing to support online course delivery systems. Research projects need global file sharing and collaboration to be effective with full flexibility of devices. The problem is that EFSS has compliance and security issues and private clouds need new hardware and increased IT support – driving up capital and operating budgets.
