Improving agility and reducing cyber security risk by migrating to the cloud, at Abertay University

By Methods12 January 20222 min read

CoreAzure┬á has delivered an exciting cloud migration programme at Abertay University, that will see the majority of IT services transition to the Microsoft cloud platform – Azure.

The programme builds upon their existing use of cloud capabilities including Azure Lab Services, which are now being used to support the delivery of teaching and learning in areas such as cyber security.

The successful transition to cloud business case focused on modernising their IT infrastructure by improving resilience, scalability, security posture, and taking advantage of innovative digital technologies in the future.

Quote from Frazer Greig, Head of IT and Corporate Services at Abertay University:

“From the outset CoreAzure used their considerable experience of successfully transitioning universities to the cloud to demonstrate how the use of the Microsoft cloud platform could positively impact our IT services. Improving agility, reducing cyber security risk and our carbon footprint by decreasing our campus data centre capacity significantly are key objectives of the programme. At the end of the project, we will have a modern, secure IT infrastructure capable of delivering a wide range of innovative digital services to our students and staff.”
