UNCG awarded for excellence in cloud solutions

UNCG is one of the recipients of E&I Cooperative Services’ inaugural Cloud Leadership Awards. Twenty four winners were selected from nearly 100 nominees to celebrate their excellence in cloud solutions on campuses across the country. UNCG was one of four universities chosen by industry expert judges as a winner in the Cloud Storage category of the awards.

The award “shows that we are leaders within the higher education industry when it comes to cloud storage,” says UNCG’s Assistant Vice Chancellor for Enterprise Infrastructure Jeff Whitworth (in photo, accepting award on behalf of the university). “We are part of setting the direction and the pace, and other universities are following our lead in this area. This award is a great accomplishment for all the staff involved in supporting cloud storage services and recognition of the hard work across the university to migrate to Box and Google Drive.”

Sponsored by Adobe, Cisco, Microsoft Azure and CDW-G, the Cloud Leadership Awards celebrate achievement in cloud solutions in universities nationwide. They award innovation in technology and raise awareness of the value and efficiency of cloud solutions. Winning campuses are recognized as leaders among higher education institutions who demonstrate vision, creative solutions and commitment to cloud technologies.
