    We had Hurricane Maria on the 20th of December.
    Puerto Rico got hit by a hurricane,
    and it was a natural disaster.
    Puerto Rico didn't have telecommunication,
    didn't have water, and didn't have electricity.
    But we had two generators, and we had a water tank.
    We also had analog lines of telephone
    that we were able to communicate with the people in the states.
    We are in the cloud, the Ellucian cloud.
    For us, that was very important, because if we
    had the system on premise, it would be a different story.
    We were up in two days, and we were
    able to run the payroll for the employees.
    That was very important for our president,
    because people were having tough times.
    And we were open in 17 days, and that was a record,
    because all the other universities
    took two months, three months.
    Some of them didn't even open.
    We thought about the disaster when we moved to the cloud.
    If another university reached out to me
    and asked me what to do in case of emergency,
    I will let them know that to be in the cloud,
    to consider being in the cloud, that
    is very important, because your system won't be interrupted
    by anything.
