HC3 Case Study

Educational Institution

Introduction

This case study of a educational institution is based on an October 2018 survey of HC3 customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled organization asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“Prior to our conversion to Scale’s HC3 platform, I had a system admin that spent the vast majority of his time managing our old platform. Back-ups were spotty, reliability was questionable, and performance was a joke.
