Cloud Computing has now become the next stage of internet’s evolution providing solutions from computing power to computing infrastructure, applications, business processes to education. The “cloud” in cloud computing is a set of hardware, network, storage, services which served over the internet from shared data centers using enormous economies of scale. To get a system which is secure, easily managed and cost-efficient we can use Cloud Computing, where instead of purchasing a huge lot of computers, we can now outsource computing from the remote cloud and pay as we use the service. As quoted by Steve Moore IT Director of Centur .Moving to the Cloud is completely cost-neutral due to the savings that has been incurred and there is perfectly no demarcation between users accessing data stored on a local server and users accessing data stored in Cloud infrastructure. My main objective of the paper is to present a case study of an institutions grappled by severe IT issues which were hampering its efficiency .Here I want to find the challenges, benefits and change E-Learning will provide to the learners so they can become the digital citizens. The data collected is by primary and secondary method. I have tried to find the challenges in the path, the benefits after adopting Cloud Technology ,security issues and the changes it brought by providing a solution to the present which is future-ready.
