Saving Money, Improving Efficiency with a Service-Based IT Approach

Technology changes at such a rapid pace that schools often struggle to keep up with the needs of their students and faculty.  But a complete solution in the form of Platform-as-a-Service, which frees campus IT departments from the burden of hosting, updating, and supporting systems themselves, can help.
