According to a recent report, funding for public two- and four-year colleges in the USA is nearly $10 billion below pre-recession levels. In this environment, higher education institutions are facing some tough challenges, including:
To meet these challenges, many universities are looking at more cost-effective technologies such as the cloud. By moving to cloud and automating manual processes across finance and HR, campuses can free up funds for more important investments into research and recruitment. In addition, the cloud can provide the dashboards, reports and analytics demanded by today’s college presidents, boards of directors, faculty, and campus administration teams.
