SICL partners with leading connectivity provider Exa to address network and application needs in education.

In schools and colleges today, network performance and/or application incidents can have an adverse impact on hundreds of pupils, students and staff.  It's vital tha education can rely upon efficient IT services whilst maximising value. Following recent changes to the Learning Network, many schools and colleges are re-evaluating their IT strategy and considering options for application and connectivity services in particular.

In association with the leading education Connectivity Provider, Exa, SICL is holding workshops presenting new hosted services, including Microsoft Office 365 and the benefits of this in conjunction with improved connectivity.

This year Exa celebrates its tenth anniversary and in that time it has grown to become the market leader of internet service provision for the education sector, providing services to over 10% of educational organisations in the UK.

From datacentre to desktop SICL provides project and support services tailored to individual customer requirement delivering technical excellence with exceptional customer service.

During the workshops Exa will demonstrate the importance of connectivity, identify common network issues and offer advice on how to overcome challenges with connectivity.

Subscription-based software such as Office 365 makes the application delivery highly scalable. Upgrades are automated and much of the support burden is taken away. Furthermore, the thorny issue of licence compliance goes away completely.
