Inside SIMS and its development - an interview with the Team

by TheScarfedOne on 28th April 2013 at 07:13 PM
So, back at the end of January, I got the opportunity to sit down with a number of the key people behind SIMS, namely Jon Wood, Graham Cooper, Ben Jones and Phil Neal.


Above - Phil Neal (MD); Graham Cooper (Head of Product Strategy)

This follows my article on SLG; and the hints at what was to become the Spring 2013 SIMS.net release.

It was refreshing to get to speak so candidly with the

HyperV Clusters

by TheScarfedOne on 17th February 2013 at 08:01 PM
Some of you may have read from my previous Microsoft School Blog posts that I run a HyperV Clustered network. This consists of 3 HyperV Hosts, running Server 2008 R2 (considering when to upgrade to 2012)... with the VHD server data files located on a SAN.

This allows me to use the Failover Clustering feature to manage the resilience of the network.

This week; I came across an odd problem.

I was getting ready to do some maintenance across the system -

Capita SIMS Developments for 2013 - SIMs Learning Gateway

by TheScarfedOne on 30th January 2013 at 11:10 AM

In this post, Im going to pick up on SIMS Learning

Intranet and Extranet SSO and Usability Project - Part 2

by TheScarfedOne on 27th January 2013 at 05:07 PM
This post is a continuation of my battle to compelte a cohesive intranet; and some more ramblings about Sharepoint. Its turned into a monster of a project this one. The external single sign on (SSO) was a breeze - thanks to Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) - but this presented an issue - internal or external, you would be faced with a logon screen. Not ideal - internally we wanted a double SSO which would use your Active Directory logon session to SSO with the TMG HTTP session.

Intranet and Extranet SSO and Usability Project - Part 1

by TheScarfedOne on 20th January 2013 at 09:02 PM
Its been a long time since I last wrote about Sharepoint - the platform for our Intranet; but now with the rest of the ongoing projects nearing completion - I've been able to return to this monster of a project.

Introduction
So, lets go back to the start and show what the end goal was.

1. Intranet Portal - containing Departmental, Staff and Student Areas. Department areas would have staff and student storage as well as news, events, discussions, blogs and all
