When the University of Stirling started working with Phoenix in 2019, we built out a five-year digital transformation roadmap to support the university in modernising its data centres and transitioning from a traditional on-premise model to a much more flexible and agile approach, ready for the future.
The university recognised that its traditional data centres were no longer the best economic or environmental solutions, and with our support, took the decision to migrate its systems to Microsoft Azure.
“Trying to make that right decision based on what the University of Stirling needs was key, and I think Phoenix helped us deal with that and make those decisions much quicker.” James Blair, Director of Development and Operations, University of Stirling
As a renowned research organisation, known for its quality of teaching and learning, the University of Stirling wanted to do something completely different to any other organisation. It needed to be able to adapt and move as quickly as technology can to enhance its students’ access to education.
“It’s not just about how students learn, it’s about the world experience that were trying to give them – that the technology is enabling. That cultural interaction that gives them an understanding of what it might be like to engage or work in different locations around the world.” Dr. David Telford, Executive Director of Information Services, University of Stirling
