Top Business School Deploys Key e-Learning Service in Under Six Months Using Leading-Edge Collaborative Tools
INSEAD is a top MBA school with campuses in both Europe and Asia, as well as a growing presence online. It wanted to enhance the user experience for online participants and promote the school as an innovative e-learning centre. But it was held back by an old and unreliable platform. With the help of Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) and Econocom, the school deployed a solution based on Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003, Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, and Microsoft Identity Integration Server (MIIS) 2003. Within a month, INSEAD was running a full-functioning prototype. The solution, the InterAct Portal, is now live and user feedback has been extremely positive.
