With already tight budgets in Education, these hard economic times add an extra burden that force IT decision makers to be ever more creative to offset costs and turn IT cost centers into IT enablers for the Business of Education as well as the Teaching and Learning process.
In this podcast I cover the broader impact of Software + Services across the vast IT and economic challenges faced by both K-12 and Higher Education. In later podcasts I will drill down into more specific technologies, solutions, and scenarios; however if you have questions or requests for details in any area, please comment or email and let me know!
I recorder this podcast a few months back, before the Azure Services Platform was publically announced at PDC in October 2008. While you can register for more current and upcoming webcasts/podcasts at www.educationwebcasts.com, the message here is still very applicable. In summary I discuss the benefits of Software + Services in Education.
