Key Findings of EDUCAUSE/NACUBO Cloud Computing Workshop

June 15, 2010

In February 2010, chief information officers, chief business officers, and industry leaders gathered in Tempe, Arizona, for a two-day EDUCAUSE/NACUBO Cloud Computing Workshop to explore what shape a higher education cloud might take and to identify opportunities and models for partnerships. 

One important option is the development of collaborative service offerings among colleges and universities. However, substantial challenges raise a number of near-term concerns including: risk, security, and governance issues; uncertainty about return on investment and service provider certification; and questions regarding which business and academic activities are best suited for the cloud. A white paper entitled Shaping the Higher Education Cloud captures key findings from the workshop, including recommendations for cloud action.
