Salford Software would like to invite you to an event for colleges and Universities at the Microsoft office, Reading on the 19th January.
The purpose of this event is to share the experiences of Hopwood Hall College with like minded academic organisations.
Hopwood Hall College, in Manchester, had a clear vision to be a leader through technology. Through the use of Microsoft technologies the College are now providing their students and users with an enhanced learning environment.
Derek O'Toole and Simon Evans from Hopwood Hall College will discuss their vision and challenges.  Experts from both Microsoft and Salford Software will also be attending this event. 
The agenda includes presentations from:

  • Richard Green, Microsoft Live@edu UK Business Manager, who will present the roadmap and updates on Microsoft Live@edu and Cloud.
  • Matt Dunkin, Principal Architect at Salford Software will discuss the benefits of using technologies like Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager and introduce you to solutions including The Hub and Student Centre
  • Matt McSpirit, Technology and Virtualisation Advisor from Microsoft, will introduce Building Your Private Cloud.

Whilst student numbers are on the increase, so is the requirement for improved services.  Solutions like The Hub allow students to work collaboratively and promotes efficient online working.  As a trusted advisor, Salford Software can help you to understand how to overcome some of the challenges that are currently being experienced across the FE sector.  Salford Software plan to demonstrate how, by maximising the benefits of your existing Microsoft skill sets and taking advantage of the low cost licensing available to education, your organisation can improve the way that services are managed and delivered. 

This event is open to those from FE and HE organisations.  If you like to know how to provide cutting edge services whilst maintaining efficiency and ensuring compliance please register your place online here.
