Northwestern University and Arizona State University are both part of a trend in educational institutions, particularly colleges and universities. Higher education institutions have begun examining their email services with an eye toward saving money on licensing and maintenance. According to the Michigan Daily Wire, Arizona State University Saved $500,000 by dropping it’s locally managed email system in favor of a hosted solution. In this case the decision was made to switch to Google Apps.

Some of the advantages of making the switch that are cited in the article include:

  • The university saved money by dropping their internal email service in favor of hosted email.
  • Many hosted email services provide larger storage than universities are capable of offering with a local solution.
  • Reduced management of email by internal IT departments
