After making it to the finals of the Microsoft Australia Education Partner of the Year, more good news for OBS, who have just been awarded the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) Information Technology Project of the Year Award in Victoria for their project management of the implementation of Microsoft Exchange 2010 for the 78,000 staff at the Victoria education department.
Here’s the news from OBS:
An innovative, large scale email solution, based on Microsoft Exchange 2010 has won the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) Information Technology Project of the Year Award.
The solution, developed for the Victorian Government's Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) is the largest Australian State or Federal government sector implementation of Microsoft Exchange 2010 and the second largest Exchange 2010 project delivered in the southern hemisphere in the past 12 months.
This project impacted over 78,000 Victorian teachers, principals and Departmental staff. "eduMail" (as the system is known internally) is a critical business system within the Department and seamless integration was required to ensure minimal disruption to the delivery of teaching to Victorian students across the state.
OBS have been working in the education market for quite some time, and have worked on many SharePoint projects, including the DEECD Fuse project, which made it to Number 2 in the Top Ten education SharePoint websites in Australia.
Their case studies include Brisbane Catholic Education and the University of South Australia.
