Amazon Web Services (AWS) is on a mission to accelerate higher education's digital transformation.
AWS works with institutions around the world including Arizona State University, the University of Oxford, and Ventura County Community College to modernize all aspects of their mission delivery. Our customers rely on AWS to support the continuity of teaching and learning, connect the campus community to systems and tools, and store institutional knowledge and data. They use AWS to make data-driven decisions to save money and resources, enable researchers to accelerate time to science, and power their educational technology systems.
AWS helps higher education institutions around the world improve security, save costs, analyze data, and provide equitable access to teaching and learning resources.
AWS allows you to spin up and suspend quickly at a low cost. Our IT team does a fantastic job of keeping us operating at a very high level and running on AWS gives us even much more flexibility.

Modernize and secure the academy
AWS helps provide increased agility, data security, and compliance, as well as implementing disaster recovery and helping lower costs.
Becoming more agile is important and modernizing your enterprise resource planning (ERP) and student information system (SIS) is how many institutions get started. You can learn more about Oracle PeopleSoft and Ellucian Banner modernization today. Additionally, unexpected events can have longstanding business and reputational impact, particularly for institutions that house complex systems. To help make sure your systems are secure and redundant, AWS offers tools to build disaster recovery and business continuity protocols, so that you can protect your institution without incurring the expense of another physical site.
