There are plenty of other education case studies from Australia on the worldwide Microsoft.com case studies website. Here’s an interesting batch:
- Catholic Education Office Paramatta uses SharePoint 2010 to run a new knowledge management system to serve their 78 schools and 6,500 staff. What’s interesting about their approach is that they have implemented it as a collaboration system, including both a wiki and a workflow system. As Leon Bro, the Principal Consultant at the Artis Group, put it “It is everything to everyone. It is a document management platform and a business intelligence tool. It is a presentation layer and a data source. It’s an information management tool and full enterprise architecture in a box. It’s everything you need it to be.”
