Journey to the Cloud

A path to greater local value

Over 25% of the University’s core information systems and departmental applications are now in the cloud, or more accurately Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). This means that instead of purchasing a copy of the software, installing it on University-owned server, in a University-owned data centre, we often purchase an annual subscription to an online, web-based service that is running on servers somewhere else. This shift to the cloud can be recognized in our personal use of computers and devices, too (e.g. storing of photos, watching movies online).
