Yuba Community College District: College District Subscribes to Cloud-Based Services, Saves $40,000 in Annual IT Costs
Yuba Community College District (YCCD) is in northern California. A 13-person IT department at YCCD maintains the IT infrastructure that supports the learning environment at the district's five facilities. Yuba Community College District had an email solution for its staff but did not provide students with email. Then it subscribed to Microsoft Live at edu and provisioned 85,000 accounts for staff and students. It saved U.S.$40,000 annually in licensing and maintenance costs and improved IT staff productivity by 10 percent. Now students are more productive with anywhere, anytime access to email, coursework, calendars, and contacts.
