RM Education moving schools and colleges to Azure

Ian Hill, Vuzion Education Business Manager, writes …

Schools and colleges want solutions that deliver immediate impact into the classroom, to improve educational outcomes and give young people access to the latest technology. However, they don’t want to spend time and money managing complex IT systems, and they also need to minimise security and privacy risks.

So, over the past 2 ½ years, we’ve been delighted to work with Vuzion partner RM Education – one of the largest education technology providers in the UK – and who are committed to supporting schools and colleges with Microsoft Azure as their platform of choice.

Azure is Microsoft’s ever-expanding set of cloud services, comprising more than 100 different components to help organisations move their IT services and infrastructure to the cloud. For partners, it offers new revenue opportunities along with new ways to deliver IT services from the cloud.

The beauty of Azure in education is that you don’t need to run on-premises servers at a high threshold. With Azure, you only pay for what you use. So, consumption of those services can be scaled back when needed, overnight, during term breaks and summer holidays. That way, schools can also cut costs.

As a specialist in the education sector – Vuzion is an authorised Microsoft Education Indirect Partner – we have been working with RM Education, to help them design, implement and roll out Azure services (such as storage, backup, and data management) to schools across the country.

‘Vuzion’s values and the way they work very much aligns with RM. Their experience, background and billing and provisioning systems add a lot of value,’ comments Steve Forbes, Senior Product Manager at RM Education.
