Many districts are using cloud software tools for their email, learning solutions, and productivity tools. Those are great uses, but school districts have just begun to scratch the surface in terms of cloud computing and how it can be used to revolutionize their data and network security platforms. During this quick-fire edWebinar, Simone Welter, ENA Product Manager Cloud Solutions, and Alan Greenberg, Senior Analyst & Partner, Wainhouse Research, outline the various ways the cloud can be used to cut costs, mitigate the impact of detrimental cyberattacks, and streamline operations.
You will learn how to access new pre-configured open-source application stacks included as part of a hosted and managed virtual data center solution that could save your district IT time and money. You’ll also learn how to utilize the cloud to support your data center strategies. Elementary through higher ed school and district leaders, as well as technology directors and leaders, will benefit from attending this session. There will be time to get your questions answered after the presentation.
