New Portal Technology Creates Fresh Opportunities for School Extranet

Free registration required

Executive Summary

St Margaret's Anglican Girls School is an independent day and boarding school located near Brisbane, Australia. It has about 860 students aged between 5 and 18. The school had a secure internet portal which served as a gateway for on-site internet access and an authentication point for remote access to internal school systems, such as class scheduling, budgeting and school results. However, the existing portal was unstable, it was inaccessible to third-party vendors and IT staff required external support if they wanted to make new internal applications available. In 2008, the school's gateway failed completely. Within a matter of days, Data#3 had installed and configured Microsoft Intelligent Application Gateway 2007 as a temporary solution, restoring remote access to off-site parents, staff and students.
