Why Waukesha County Technical College made the move to the cloud. 

For most institutions, keeping pace with complex, rapidly-evolving technology is a challenge. As the level of expertise required increases, so do labor costs. And taking advantage of innovation requires continuous hardware and software upgrades. 

For Waukesha County Technical College, outsourcing its core technology infrastructure to the cloud ultimately became the most cost-efficient option. 

“With the plethora of applications integrating together creating complex ecosystems—and when you look at the cost and resources it takes to upgrade and maintain them all—it no longer makes sense for us to do it ourselves,” says Chief Information Officer Rodney Nobles.  

By hosting its Ellucian Banner® ERP in the Ellucian cloud, the college projects $1.5 million in savings over the next three years. 

If you want enhanced security for critical infrastructure and systems, in-depth disaster recovery, to not have to worry about everything, and to sleep well at night—I think cloud application hosting would be the option for you.
