The Sheldon B. Lumar School of Business at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee is part of a trend embracing cloud networking as an effective and efficient system of the future, reports a recent article from govtech.com.
The school's Center for Technology Innovation is migrating its enterprise resource planning software system, which contains a diverse set of educational management information across an organization including finance, manufacturing, sales, and customer service (to name a few), to the cloud. The Sheldon B. Lumar School of Business believes the switch to cloud networking will increase efficiency and, in the long-run, decrease costs. Though crashes on cloud networks have caused problems before, the business school has implemented a backup procedure it believes will alleviate these concerns. Director of The Center for Technology Innovation at UW-Milwaukee, Dave Haseman, believes that many business schools will find themselves migrating to the cloud in the near future.
What do you think? Will cloud networking make the leap to higher education?
