Cloud Computing Is Pushing the Education Landscape Forward

We've seen how much cloud computing affects various industries over the years. While businesses seem to be the ones taking the most advantage of the cloud technology, they are certainly not the only parties benefiting from capable cloud servers and the services built around them. In fact, we're starting to see other industries such as healthcare and manufacturing utilizing the cloud to gain several advantages.

In recent years, education is a field that has been increasingly benefiting from using the cloud as part of its workflows. Universities across the country are taking more of their operations to the cloud. There are different ways cloud computing is pushing the education landscape forward.

Better Research Programs

The switch to collective resources and cloud computing in education started with various research programs conducted by universities.

Microsoft on Thursday reported a strong jump in profits in the just-ended quarter but revenue fell short of expectations in the tech giant's first earnings report incorporating social network LinkedIn.
