The demands for schools to be equipped with technical devices, a modern IT infrastructure and secure software solutions are anything but new. This applies to the administration as well as the teaching itself. But when it comes to making the leap into the digital age, state and independent schools are left to their own devices at the end of the day.
The Initiative Group Freie Waldorfschule Chiemgau decided to use the luckycloud in this context. We talked to Axel Schön, managing director of the association, about the background and first experiences with our solution.
Mr Schön: Many employees are involved in the work of our association. For the administration and accounting, we were therefore looking for a solution that would allow all employees and board members secure access to the association's data and would require only a minimum of administrative effort.
Mr Schön: Without a doubt, the security of data and easy access for users is the main focus. For ours - as probably for many other schools - a low administrative effort is also of considerable importance, as there is no full-time IT specialist. Building, maintaining and maintaining our own infrastructure would not be feasible or would be far too expensive for us. Last but not least, we were looking for a cloud solution that is also scalable downwards and is suitable and cost-effective, especially at the beginning, even for a small number of users.
Mr Schön: The introduction was completely unproblematic and fast. After installing the access, all data was mirrored from the previous location into the cloud and one-time releases were set up for the users. Since then, the solution has been available without restrictions and has fulfilled all expectations to date.
Mr Schön: Yes, in the meantime the roll-out at our educational institution is also being considered. Here too, the administration and the board of directors should be able to share club data.
