TPC has also expanded to provide advice to University teams embarking on Enterprise cloud-based projects with a unique program to prepare teams to work with their chosen SAAS or cloud-based implanted. Risk factors are identified and addressed and all potential budget risks are identified and strategies developed to prevent budget overruns. This avoids the all too common problem of issues arising during the course of the project where tensions rise between the implementation team and the university leading to delays and increased costs.
