Inoapps Higher Education Cloud

Providing the systems and people processes for transforming Higher Education

"We already have an ambitious programme of transformation underway, and moving to the cloud will help to underpin and support our future ways of working in Finance, HR and across all of our schools and departments. Key to its success will be ensuring we’re not only delivering an improved system and joined up processes, but also making sure our staff across the University understand what it means for them.”
Gavin Ian McLachlan, Vice Principal and CIO, University of Edinburgh

A successful Higher Education solution is about more than just well-built, functionally capable software. It also needs to be well adopted and accepted by students and staff. With a proven track record in Higher Education, Inoapps understands the challenges of standardizing processes across schools and faculties with vastly different and evolving priorities and requirements.

Truly collaborative partnerships are the key to success, and we are here to work with you to help improve your staff and student experience so they can better concentrate on the business of education and research.

Preparing for your cloud transition project

Solid planning helps remove implementation risks and significantly improves user adoption. 

Inoapps can support you at this critical point in your project with:

  • Technical Readiness Assessments. To review your existing deployments and environments and provide a solid technical starting point for the project.
  • Business Readiness Assessments. To assess the project’s impact on the university and system users, and establish what can be changed now to minimize impact later in the process.
  • Data quality review. To establish where you have inconsistent, disconnected or poor quality data.
  • Roadmap preparation. To develop a roadmap that outlines the stages and timelines for your transition to the cloud, whether that’s over the next 12 months or 12 years.
  • Project and Program Governance Design. Leveraging our extensive implementation experience to help design a governance structure that suits your culture while achieving the needs of the transformation program.
