Safe Technology for Schools

Safe Technology for Schools

A hot topic ever present among educators is ensuring their students are prepared for life and the working world upon graduation, especially in the area of technology. Unfortunately, this is often easier said than done. High price tags, complex content management systems, and security problems can all get in the way of a school fulfilling this goal. 

Luckily, with the right partnerships, this aim can become a reality. Utilizing Windows 10 in S Mode, school districts across the country can manage content access for all its devices through a single program and implement the ideal level of security – all while training students on the number one platform used by businesses throughout the world.

Microsoft in Schools

With the extra security provided by Windows 10 in S mode, we get that right balance between safeguarding devices and encouraging communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.

Azure Database Migration

Azure Database Migration

The ability to innovate is what separates long-term successful businesses from the pack. However, a business can have all the game-changing innovative ideas in the world, but it won’t do them any good unless they are actually implemented. 

SitePro gained a competitive advantage by combining onsite sensors and data collection with online data processing and management using Microsoft Azure. As a result, they were able to provide faster and more effective service to their customers, which in turn strengthened the offerings of their customers. It’s a win for everyone.

“We realized we were leaving too many good ideas on the side,” Aaron Phillips, President and CEO, SitePro. 

SitePro, a software platform that supports oil and gas facilities, knew that to power the kind of data collection and usage they imagined, they were going to need to switch from an onsite infrastructure to a scalable cloud service. They found the solution they were looking for in Microsoft Azure

Now, they alone can provide data services that usually require multiple companies to perform, and they are passing on those benefits in cost savings and efficiencies to their customers.
