SCEIP: Analysis Study for Deploying Cloud Services in Educational Institutions of Pakistan
For underdeveloped countries like Pakistan, education is very important to be at par with the developed countries. Education plays a vital role in the development and prosperity of the country. Cloud computing has been an essential part of education during the last few years. We have conducted a cost benefit analysis on cloud deployment in government institutions. Our focus is to evaluate the costs and benefits of moving educational institutions data to cloud. We intend to investigate the cost required to implement cloud based structure in an institution and what benefits it will bring to it. We will be considering some specific universities for each sector: public and private. We have compared the cost of traditional system being followed in institutions and SAAS system which will be helpful for educational sector. We conducted a survey to investigate barriers involved in implementing cloud facilities in public institutions. The comparison shows the benefits of implementing SAAS model in institutions.
