Demystifying Cloud Computing for Higher Education

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Abstract

This ECAR research bulletin is the first in a series of bulletins devoted to cloud computing in higher education. It summarizes insights and a framework for thinking about cloud computing, and it touches on potential emergent roles for public and private clouds. The findings draw from spring 2009 interviews with industry and university information technology (IT) leaders, a review of current literature, and a synthesis of recent research from the EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR).
