Microsoft @ UCISA 2016 – 16th-18th March

This week, Microsoft will be in Manchester at the annual UCISA Higher Education conference as both an exhibitor and sponsor. Come to our stand to learn more about Microsoft in Education, whether it be trying out a number of devices - both from our OEM partners and Microsoft the Surface range - or speaking to our team about anytime anywhere learning, achieved through Office 365 and the Microsoft Cloud.

With Higher Education institutions having to increasingly consider the operational and economical aspects of providing an education at scale, serious thought must be given to the digital infrastructure and way that vast quantities of data produced are stored, managed and utilised.

Our team members on the Microsoft stand will be happy to talk to you about bringing your institution to the cloud, and can share many examples of how other universities have successfully transformed the way they operate through Microsoft Azure.

Speaking at UCISA 2016 will also be Michael Stephenson (a Microsoft Azure and Integration MVP and a freelance cloud and integration specialist & trainer), who will be talking about how Northumbria University has embraced the cloud and it has become a key business as usual service which is pivotal to delivering the IT aspects of their Vision 2025 strategy. In this session we will look at some examples of how the cloud has been used within a bi-modal IT delivery model to super charge the delivery of agile projects.

Office 365 in Education

Create dynamic learning experiences in and outside of the classroom with Office 365 Education. Best of all, you may be eligible to download Office 365 Education for free!

This simply means that you can access all of your Office apps, including OneNote, Word, PowerPoint and all of the great apps you heard about at BETT, for no cost on up to 5 devices. And all of these applications work cross-platform, so there's no excuse not to download it now!

Surface Discounts

Launching last year, the Surface 3 has been hugely well received in education, providing the combined functionality of a tablet and a laptop, along with superior inking capabilities, in a portable yet powerful device that is affordable for academic institutions.

Between now and the 31st of March, Microsoft will be offering extra discounts into the channel for Education of up to 30% on Surface 3 Education bundles*. Additionally, all Surface 3 Education bundle orders from February 1st will ship with the new Surface Pro 4 pen. Please contact your preferred Surface reseller for a quote, or if you'd like to discuss a potential project, email Tim from the Surface Education team:

*Final price will come from the authorised reseller. The offer applies to Surface 3 Education bundle skus only. Surface Pro 4, Surface Book and non-bundle skus are not included in this promotion


We look forward to welcoming you to the Microsoft stand this week, as well as helping you decide on and take the next steps in your digital strategy.
