Indiana University has received a 2012 Campus Technology Innovators Award for the development of IUanyWARE, a cloud-based service that provides students, faculty and staff with on-demand access to hundreds of software applications. The Innovators Award recognizes universities that deploy extraordinary technology solutions to meet campus challenges.
With IUanyWARE, IU enables its 100,000 students — and all faculty and staff — to access critical software on any personal device, including PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones. IUanyWARE runs on Citrix’s virtual technology from IU’s primary Data Center in Bloomington, using Indiana’s I-Light network to reach all campuses. This means students will no longer need to install every kind of software required for coursework.
This Campus Technology Innovators Award is the latest of four national IT awards for Indiana University in 2012.
