This IDC Perspective highlights the growing role of cloud in enabling the future of higher education. Leaders will need to revisit their cloud strategies to ensure they are prepared for hybrid multicloud deployments and have a cloud strategy that fits the needs of different workloads. With cloud providers becoming key strategic technology partners, picking the right ones that offer cloud services that address the nuances and specific needs of education sector will be pivotal. "Looking beyond the pandemic, a cloud-enabled hybrid experience infrastructure is an operational and strategic imperative for institutions to remain competitive in a world that is changing at a breakneck pace. Higher education leaders must develop and execute cloud migration strategies that are not defined by budgetary or cost-cutting priorities, but by digital resiliency, student well-being and success, hybrid-first experiences, and lifelong learning," said Rimal Likhari, research manager, European Education Digital Transformation Strategies.
