What I'm trying to do is come up with an ICT strategy for the next 4-5 years, which will inevitably include upgrading both Windows and Office. I'm also interested in looking at how these desicions impact may plans for this years and next years ICT budget.
Will I need to put other projects on the back burner - such a virtualisation or SAN - to pay for this? Do I spend money now on new Vista/Office licences knowing that in 18months time it's could be all change? Is there a sensible way of flattening out the cost of this change over? Do we stage it and have multiple versions for a while? How do I manage the change of UI for teachers? We are (hopefully) getting rid of Winsuite this summer which is going to cause enough shocks! Do I implement a straight change to Win7/latest office - total UI change day 1 - or do one first then the other?
Half of the programs the teachers want to run here won't even run on windows - how on earth are you going to run them on Linux?
Also - with no Active Directory and thus no way of centrally controlling workstations users and software - how on earth are you going to manage the network??
