Help Me With My Plans: what could I do next and how much would it cost?
Morning my lovelies!
I've been in my current NM position now for three years and, as of a month or so ago, completed the Three Year Plan. We now have a reasonable baseline spec of computer (C2D proc), Windows 7, virtual W2k8R2 domain, upgraded core switches, fibre internet w/ Smoothwall and a VLE.
The essentials are Done. Hurrah! :bounce:
I reckon that we're good for a couple of years, now, with a solid foundation in place and no particular need to upgrade anything beyond a few rolling programmes (slowly pushing out Casio LED projectors & newer HP switches). So for a little while, I can do the Nice Things instead of just the Necessary Things.
So: what do you reckon should be on my list, and how much would it cost? (ballpark)
I'm already going to go ahead with Office 365 as it's free and I'd be daft not to, though I'm undecided on moving my email from on-site Exchange. My other current options are ClickView & a managed wireless system; how much do they come in at, give or take? We have 450 computers and already have 25 dumb 802.11n WAPs if it gives a clue.
We're a selective secondary with a hefty sixth form; anything you've seen/heard/done, tell me :)
