Cloud computing is an engine of digital transformation. It has reshaped strategic thinking on technology and resiliency in the modern enterprise. Cloud technologies are increasingly at the heart of the institutional response to the unprecedented disruptions triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Industry analyses show that cloud technologies will be among the core capabilities that enable institutions to thrive in the post-pandemic economic recovery. The 2021 Graduate Seminar themed series will delve into the cloud phenomenon and its implications for diverse work sectors and domains.
As part of the Graduate Seminar series we are offering a webinar to the iSchool community on November 18 3:00-5:00PM EST to kick-off! We will hear from leadership at the SU Library on management and technology during the pandemic. Then, EY to speak on cloud strategy and resiliency during COVID.

Open to faculty, staff, students, and alumni from the School of Information Studies (iSchool).
