Apps expose time and money for SIF

One of the criticisms of innovation, such as information sharing, is that it needs time and money to research and implement.  The benefits case has been made many times, but it still needs some initial investment.

Here’s Quarkside’s idea for schools who may be spending money on licences for Outlook, Word etc.  Google Apps Education Edition offers a free (and ad-free) set of customisable tools that enable teaching staff, other staff and students to work together and learn more effectively.  When the time comes for renewal, consider looking at the administration efficiency gains obtainable from Systems Interoperability Framework (SIF) products.

It’s not an instant solution, but there’s virtue in thinking ahead.
