Cloud Professional Services

Begin a new era of efficiency and innovation in the cloud

Campus IT leaders must do more with less in the face of declining enrollment, uncertain revenue, and pressure to improve the student experience. The cloud opens up new opportunities for achieving strategic goals but limited cloud expertise and little time to devote to cloud strategy are common obstacles.

Ease your journey to the cloud

Apogee Cloud Professional Services help campus IT teams create new avenues for modernization, efficiency, cost-savings, and innovation. Apogee experts guide and collaborate with your in-house team to overcome the common barriers to cloud adoption.

From understanding cloud readiness or migrating and modernizing business-critical applications, to assessing backup, recovery and storage capabilities, and configuring virtual desktops, Apogee project-based engagements help you make the most of all the cloud has to offer.

With nearly a quarter century of higher education experience behind us and as an AWS Select Partner, Apogee helps you close gaps in in-house cloud expertise, accelerate your digital transformation journey, and put you on the road to institutional success.

“It seemed logical to me to make the move to AWS and adopt a system that was much easier to manage—one that didn’t require an investment in hardware every five years. Our team has the confidence and ability to innovate rapidly in a way that was not feasible when we were on premises. We’re excited to discover what else is possible with the cloud.”
