Research is the lifeblood of large institutions. It drives breakthroughs on global issues, garners acclaim, attracts funding and launches careers.
However, today’s research initiatives are becoming more complex and costly – and are being examined through the lens of faculty performance and student achievement, increasing the need for more accountability.
To satisfy the public’s scrutiny of escalating tuition costs, institutions must now quickly deliver real world, evidence-based outcomes of research with more transparency.
But the disruption doesn’t end there. With beacons, wearables and other Internet of Things (IoT) devices able to capture information previously inaccessible, the sheer scale of research projects and the exhaustive amount of data they generate has exploded.
To store an unparalleled avalanche of structured and unstructured data, today’s information repositories must be highly secure, scalable and cost-effective. The technology stack’s design has important consequences on how research analysis and collaboration are performed as well, making cloud-based technology for data storage and retrieval an attractive option.
The cloud can empower research at your university by:
- Storing vast quantities of data from sensors, metering devices, and other sources
- Scaling up and down as projects generate fluctuating amounts of data
- Defending against breaches in security and system outages
- Generating a collaborative structure to enable breakthrough research across the globe
