Perth’s Edith Cowan University

Setting new standards for universities in the cloud

Industry: Professional Education
Region: Australia
Headquarters: Perth
Company size: 1,400 employees

“While we reviewed the changing landscape of our organization against future expansion plans, moving to the cloud became inevitable and we found Atos with its international coverage and expertise to be the right fit.”

Professor Arshad Omari Deputy Vice-Chancellor
Edith Cowan University

Perth’s Edith Cowan University became the first Australian university to move its entire IT infrastructure to the cloud

bluedash

Edith Cowan University (ECU) is an open and vibrant public university with around 23,000 students. It’s based in Perth, Western Australia – one of the remotest cities in the world. In a highly competitive market and with an ambitious vision for growth, ECU’s leadership team saw the huge potential of digital technologies. Today’s students naturally expect access to digital tools and content.

ECU’s Vision

With the need for a more agile, high-performing and cost-efficient digital infrastructure, ECU knew that cloud adoption was essential. The Board’s vision was bold: to move the university’s entire data center infrastructure to the cloud as early as possible.

Atos’ Solution

Between 2015 and 2020, Atos worked closely with ECU to achieve a smooth and seamless transition and transformation of ECU’s entire IT infrastructure to a new secure Managed Hybrid (multi-tenant) Cloud environment.

The challenge

bluedash

  • The university had to ensure a smooth and reliable digital environment for students and staff.
  • Access, govern and safeguard its own data (and that of its students), without giving away sovereignty to a third-party provider.

The solution

  • Brand-new, state-of-the-art cloud hub with twin data centers in Perth.
  • Atos’ Canopy Hybrid Cloud Orchestration Service is a fully managed cloud service and provided on a highly efficient and flexible pay-as-you-go consumption model.

Business benefit

bluedash

  • Instead of having to maintain its own IT, ECU benefits from a simple ‘hop-on/hop-off’ service that flexes entirely to meet demand between and across semesters.
  • ECU has access to agile, dynamic development expertise that reduces the time to market for any new digital tools and technologies.
