A school decides it wants to provide a common and consistent â€œofficeâ€ solution (a software package that includes word processing, spreadsheets, presentation capabilities, and drawing capabilities) to all students and teachers in the school. The school has approximately 1,000 students, 50 teachers, five administrators, five secretaries, and 10 food/maintenance workers. The school also wants to provide a solution that allows students to do their homework on any device they own, with the ability to log in from anywhere anytime and get to the work they last worked on where they left off.
Right now the school has at least four different versions of office software, the library has PCs, the classrooms have Macs, some of the kids have tablets of varying varieties, and the office staff members all have different laptops. The IT group has a heck of a time ensuring all machines are up to date, patched correctly, and have the correct software installed. Everyone is provided a USB drive to save their work to.
You have been tasked with outlining a â€œcloud computingâ€ strategy that will provide a common and consistent solution to the above scenario. Be sure your outline includes:
- What cloud-based services or deployment models would you recommend? And why?
- What common office software would you recommend? And why?
- Does your solution ensure log-in capabilities from anywhere anytime on any platform? Be sure to address how.
