    @russdev - Ha. Yes I do.BRING ON THE PAAAAAIIN.

    @FishCustard - I'm quite confident I know more about progresso than anyone in the country that doesn't work for advanced, so I know the risks but also how to mitigate most of them. It's all about calculated risk and the value of the benefits of moving.

    @vikpaw - as above, probably yes but I'm not sure whether I would If I didn't have the experience I do have, maybe I would,it's difficult to think about it like that. The software is coming along nicely now and the implementation process is changing, the bad press that it's had is a result of things which are either rectified, can be worked around,or will be rectified by the time it's live at my place.

    @michael2k6 - knowing what you know, then, when do you think the migration will be worth serious consideration again? My MIS server is on old hardware and I live in constant fear of its collapse, but I don't want to go through the pain of rebuilding Facility if Progresso is 6 months down the line anyway. I'm balancing between two complete unknowns atm.

    @sonofsanta, I went to a small conference today held by Advanced to find out some more about the transition,what they've learnt from the issues seen previously,and what they're doing to address it. I'm impressed by the honesty and the attitude they have taken, and I'm hoping that the school I've just moved to will be live by September. So we'll see! Something to consider,is the recommended moving period will take up some of your time - by which I mean, your hardware doesn't just have to last until you decide to move but has to cover the migration period too of course. Have you done everything you can to optimise the environment it lives in? We're kind of hijacking the thread though so if you want to chat about it some more start one and mention me in it or PM me

    Mike

    Hi All,

    Very recently I made the switch from Sound and Lighting technician in a community college, to an ICT Technician in an independant college. Figured I should get myself on a forum as I'm sure I'll be asking for help here and there!

    Its good to be able to discuss topics with like minded individuals in similar job roles so I look forward to the forth-coming threads.

    I'm not very expereienced in this field, I've passed the 801 & 802 A+ exams (and am currently studying for N+ too), however that's about it. Its a very recent change for me so please be gentle!

    Let the posting commence!

    Cheers all,

    nab.

    Hi All.

    After browsing EduGeek for the Odd bit of problem solving / product info decided I should sign up and be more active.

    Myself and my small team look after a couple of dozen schools locally, providing all manner of IT Support and hardware procurement. (The other side of the business is the AV side and we have our own Interactive products)

    Hoping to be an active part of the community and even look at some forum sponsorship

    Cheers

    Jamie
