School in a Box, is a way of achieving the following:
The phrase we’re thinking of here is IT as a Service. Think about your other services – gas, electricity, water. You don’t generate your own electricity; you don’t have a private gasworks. What you have are boxes in a cupboard with numbers to phone if the supply goes down.
In the coming years, the delivery of IT will evolve to adopt a similar more utility orientated delivery model, and that’s what we aim for with IT as a service. IT provision on a consumption basis that can be tailored to meet the exact needs of your business, or in your case, your school.
And, of course, what makes it possible is the internet and the opportunities for hosted services delivered over the web. Or to phrase differently, “cloud” based services.
