Advancity CEO Cem Atacık suggested that due to the pandemic, educational institutions will have to develop their digital campuses.
“The educational world was one of the first ecosystems affected by the coronavirus pandemic, which soon affected the whole world. During this period, many educational institutions switched to the distance learning system and moved the courses and exams to the online environment,” Atacık noted.
This attached greater importance to new generation technologies such as digital transformation and cloud infrastructure, he added.
“We have made the content easily applicable in universities. In order to keep up with this rapid change and ensure continuous learning, Advancity has moved its virtual classroom software to NGN Cloud and reached a cloud infrastructure with the desired performance,” Atacık explained.
By keeping the virtual classroom software in the NGN Cloud infrastructure, he said they reached 50,000 users at the same time and enabled over 2 million students to receive an education.
Beyazıt Öztürk, director of NGN Data Center and Cloud Solutions, drew attention to the flexible and pay-as-you-use infrastructure that cloud technology offers to educational institutions.
“Educational institutions will focus on the content. (The institutions) will not deal with technological infrastructure or increase in capacity. We have responded to the changing video content and the video calls need. We gained significant experience during the pandemic period,” Öztürk noted.
