Upcoming webinar features practical solutions for providing technologies
One school district reveals its success in effective and safe tech management
Until recently, a K12 environment was primarily concerned with providing services to administrative staff. Now districts are providing services to teachers, students and in many cases parents but don’t really have the tools to scale their operations while maintaining adequate security. In this webinar, we will look at some of the practical issues K12 districts face today that center around account management and resource access and will talk to Spring ISD to learn more about their approach to these issues. Spring ISD is located in the Houston Metropolitan Area and has approximately 40,000 students and 5,300 staff.
Join James Watson, director of technology services at Spring Independent School District, and James Litton, chairman and CEO of Identity Automation, as they discuss:
- How directly integrating data from the HR/SIS systems can greatly reduce IT burden and enhance IT services to the district
- How implementing self-service tools increases security and user perception of IT services
- How implementing Identity driven storage solutions can significantly impact the classroom (Digital Lockers)
- How to add/leverage cloud based services without giving up control
- How to leverage Workflow to (a) manage non-standard accounts, (b) implement privileged user management
Sponsored by Identity Automation, the webinar will take place Tuesday, May 1 at 2:00 p.m. EST (11:00 a.m. PST). The presentation is expected to last one hour, and registration is free.
