Cloud solution with Azure: Björn Svensson interviewed by Microsoft

The Department of Informatics uses Microsoft Azure as a cloud solution for students attending the Bachelor’s Programme in Design of Information Systems. It allows us to have complete BYOD-solutions in our computer rooms, which attracts students to campus while also saving energy and money.

Informatic’s director of studies, Björn Svensson, was interviewed by Microsoft for an article in “Din digitala skola” (Your digital school), where he explains how we are using Microsoft Azure in our bachelor’s programme. Azure is a cloud platform that is used to create and access web applications via Microsoft’s servers.

– Once we decided to use Microsoft’s cloud service Azure, we didn’t need computers anymore. In Azure we can visualize the machines we need to complete assignments. We work with “bring your own device”, which means students bring their own computers to the computer rooms, hook their computers up to two screens and connect to the machine they have established in Azure, Björn Svensson explains in the article.

Björn Svensson regularly communicates with Microsoft, who now offers all Informatics bachelor’s students the opportunity to earn a certificate in “Azure fundamentals” – entirely free of charge.
