Jenzabar®, Inc., a leading provider of software, strategies and services
for higher education, shared customer perspectives on Cloud and Hosted
strategies at EDUCAUSE 2013 in Anaheim, California on October 16.
Reported as a top IT issue by EDUCAUSE, cloud computing is one of the
fastest-changing aspects of higher education technology. Jenzabar
delivered a corporate presentation titled “All Things Hosted:
Developing an Institution-Wide Cloud Strategy” where panelists fromJenzabar client colleges and universities shared their perspective
on cloud strategies as well as benefits on moving to a hosted model.
Jenzabar’s corporate presentation brought in over 150 attendees. Panel
Kenneth C. Green, Founder and Director of The Campus Computing Project,
moderated the session along with Jenzabar’s Vice President and General
Manager of Managed Services, Ben Bassett. Drawing on new data from the 2013
Campus Computing Survey, Green offered opening comments that
"although a large proportion of campus CIOs and senior IT officers
acknowledge that Cloud computing looms large in their future, to date
only a small proportion of colleges and universities have migrated to
the Cloud for many of the high-value ERP applications such as finance
and student information systems. Moreover, only a small proportion of
senior campus IT officers expect their institutions to be these
Cloud-based ERP applications by 2018."
Ben Bassett from Jenzabar noted that a small but growing number of
Jenzabar campus clients have already migrated to various Cloud-based
applications. Jenzabar addresses this top IT issue through its Cloud
