Next Generation Services

CENTRALISATION

AIT have a vision to provide a central IT infrastructure that can be used to deliver a unified service to schools. Centralising staffing, procurement, budget planning and IT direction result in a more coherent flow and dramatically reduces costs.

NO NEED FOR THIRD PARTIES

AIT have a vison that minimizes the involvement of third parties to ensure services and resources are managed by the in-house team, thus enabling a more efficient and reliable overall service. AIT envisage a complete centralised solution, meaning every Primary/Secondary would be consolidated into one.

DISASTER RECOVERY PLAN

We will provide Active Directory integration and remove the need for any physical servers to be on site. AIT also offer the facility to integrate into our AD, offering server space and management from our central team. This, in turn, can aid your disaster recovery plan, as AIT can hold a current live backup of the schools infrastructure within our DataCentre. This should give you a twofold effect: the IT support team administering one large network rather than separate configurations and, furthermore, physical resources can be spread across all Academies, maximising investment.

SERVICE LEVEL AVAILABILITY

AIT offers the use of our infrastructure and, in doing so, this reduces the overall investment required by the individual schools. Taking full advantage of a DataCentre infrastructure you should be aiming for 100% service level availability, with a true disaster recovery plan and policy.

2020 CONCEPT

OUR VISION

AIT have a vision of complete connectivity from the home to the school. We are currently offering both broadband and Wi-Fi solutions to end users, enabling parents to offer completely safe and filtered (as well as unfiltered) internet access at home.

This also facilitates the use of a true (BYOD) system that encourages both access to school resources from home and a more integrated view of what Academies are doing for the residents.

Currently several of our current schools are offering this service to both teachers and students. AIT also have a trial in progress offering free broadband to users in a severely disadvantaged area. This has been proven to be, not only, a fantastic community builder but has also helped to empower users that would not have otherwise had access to the internet.

AIT envisage a complete unified solution, centralised; telephony (VOIP), CCTV, door access control, file systems, IM and Wi-Fi. Facilitating cross collaboration and unity across all schools. In doing so, this will meet all of the requirements of a collaborative workforce, combined with AIT’s current infrastructure, there would be very low investment to facilitate the centralisation process. Dramatically lowering the overall running costs to the School whilst giving extensive facilities.
