A cloud-based solution for your college
As further education providers look for ways to save money and make the best use of their resources, one of the biggest decisions that senior leaders may be weighing up is whether to move to the cloud. The role of cloud technology and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) as an IT delivery platform is now accepted by many college CIOs, IT directors and MIS department heads looking for an evolving step-change, and who recognise the advantages of flexibility and scalability.
Secure, accessible and cost-effective solutions
The potential benefits of a cloud solution are substantial. With FE providers under pressure to plan their budget effectively, being able to cut the cost of maintaining on-premises IT systems is significant. But like all infrastructure changes, they need to be understood and planned before making the leap.
Supporting your journey to the cloud
The first step when moving your institution to the cloud is to understand how to get there with minimal disruption, and that’s where UNIT-e can help with support and guidance at every stage of your journey. As part of a fully-managed service, your database will be securely hosted and all upgrades and backups will be carried-out by us to ensure that your system works at optimum efficiency. Furthermore, as an appointed Crown Commercial Service G-Cloud 9 supplier, colleges and training providers can purchase the IT products and services from Capita simply and securely.
Five reasons to move to a hosted solution
Security - ensures reliability and continuity of service removing the risk of on-premise maintenance, keeping data held by your organisation safe
Scalability - offers economies of scale allowing you to meet peak demands with IT infrastructure that can grow with your institution
Efficiency - eliminates the need to maintain on-site servers, saving time and money associated with managing complex IT systems
Mobility - gives students the freedom to work from anywhere, anytime, reducing geographic boundaries and improving the student experience
Accessibility - gives staff full remote access from pretty much any device, making it easier to share information in real time
