dc.description.abstractSIGMA Gestión Universitaria is a nonprofit consortium established in 1996 by a group of 8 top level Spanish Public Universities to provide technological solutions to their needs for managing academics, learning, research and organization processes. SIGMA represents 20% of the students in the Spanish university system. The consortium’s objective has evolved towards the continuous technological modernization of university management through the development of IT solutions aimed at automating the administrative processes and, as a result, guaranteeing their effectiveness. So in 1996 the 8 universities that created SIGMA were trying to sum their efforts in a unique SIS & CRIS solution core. The project let develop fully functionality software with their entire specific casuistic and in terms of costs were affordable for all of them. Nowadays as the price of storage and bandwidth continues to drop fast, Cloud-Based services are becoming more and more attractive and are affordable to small and medium-sized businesses which are seeking to reduce licensing costs, avoid recruiting IT staff and focus fully on their core responsibility–growing the business. The concept of the cloud is a simple one: a service provider processes, manages or stores customer data in a remote data center either as a substitute for, or as a supplement to, customers’ on-premises infrastructure.en_US
