TechLink Community: Cloud Journeys and Software Frameworks

Wed 26 May 2021

  • 14:15: Some Light in the Cloud - Azure at Cambridge Enterprise

Dr. Paul Seabright (Deputy Director) and Matt Whiting (CTO) of Cambridge Enterprise <> will share some of the ups and downs of their transition from on-premise to the cloud, which has been more rapid and radical than many of our institutions. As the University's knowledge transfer organisation, Cambridge Enterprise uses commercial avenues to develop the outputs of University research into successful products and services that benefit society. Their lessons and caveats may help others consider the practicalities when implementing a 'cloud first' strategy.

  • 15:00: Software Sleuthing - National Frameworks & Software Licence Resellers Agreement (SLRA)

The new SLRA, available via SUPC <> and other University purchasing consortia <>, provides multiple pre-negotiated agreements (lots) for software and services, working with a range of suppliers to help save institutions time and money. Academia, key supplier for lots such as with Adobe and VMware licensing <>, will provide an overview and practical introduction how to make use of the new SLRA.

Target audience

University and affiliated IT staff.
