Cloud First

Cloud computing

ISC's Cloud First Program positions Penn for the future of IT systems and services by pursuing a “Cloud First” strategy to accelerate the speed of delivery and to drive more value through technology to the Penn community. Cloud computing enables ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable resources (networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.

Program Goals

  • Position Penn to thrive in the dramatically changing technological landscape – new learning and education delivery models, research models, security and business on demand.
  • Provide new and innovative ways to deliver IT in support of Penn’s mission, while leveraging industry solutions, in a way that provides scalability, agility, efficiency, staff development, and risk management.
