Kansas State Makes Gains by Moving Most Visible Workloads to AWS Cloud & Relying on Managed Services

In the spring of 2019, K-State established a strategic plan called One IT to address the challenges that surface in an ever-shifting IT environment. A goal of the strategic plan was to modernize the University’s technology infrastructure. As part of its cloud first strategy, K-State decided to move forward with an ERP migration to AWS after determining that AWS offered significant performance and availability advantages compared to traditional data center options.
