Erate Webinars

Author: Event Admin

Date of Event: October 29, 2015
Where: Web / Online
Time: 10:45AM (Pacific) / 1:45PM (Eastern)

School network infrastructure is critical to successful college and career readiness initiatives, and many schools do not have the network capacity and density to support personalized learning and on-line assessment needs.  Well designed and implemented wireless solutions reduce complexity, risk and cost.  Most importantly, teachers and students can focus on learning. 

As a premier professional services integrator, TIG can provide complete networking and wireless assessments and network designs including wireless as a service (WaaS) solutions that allow schools to take an OPEX approach to wireless procurement, deployment, and management.

TIG has the expertise, resources, and commitment to help you implement an education data network addressing today and tomorrow’s teaching and learning requirements.
The Schools and Libraries Universal Service Program (E-Rate) managed by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) can be an excellent resource to offset the cost of upgrading your network infrastructure by up to 85%.  Significant program changes beginning in 2015 provide schools and libraries with internal connection funding:
-         An incremental $1 Billion is allocated for Category 2 internal connections.
-         Schools’ 5 year Category 2 budget is $150 per student times the district’s discount rate.  Libraries are $2.30 per sq. ft. ($30 per student times the discount rate for Wireless as Service over 5 years)
-         All properly submitted 2015 471’s are being funded.
Please join TIG for an overview of E Rate changes and TIG Wireless Solutions including Wireless as a Service.

Web Scale Infrastructure Challenges and Solutions

Author: Event Admin

Date of Event: October 28, 2015
Where: Independent Colleges of Indiana, 30 S Meridian St #800, Indianapolis, IN 46204
Time: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

Will you be at EDUCAUSE? Join us for a cocktail hour and discover infrastructure solutions! Facing tighter budgets and limited resources, Higher Education CIOs face a complexity of storage management, separate computing, and performance optimization for old, archaic applications that continue to be barriers to gaining the full benefits of virtualization.

TIG will review hyperconverged infrastructure solutions that integrate computing and storage resources into a single appliance. The result addresses how this unique architecture delivers cost savings and predictable scalability for all types of virtual workloads through a patented scale-out architecture that:

  • Simplifies IT management and reduces cost
  • Lowers cost to start with a modular design
  • Runs on the hypervisor of your choice fitting your budget and preference

Meet with TIG’s Brian Vislusky, Director of Virtualization, and find out how hyperconverged infrastructure may be the solution to your educational IT needs!

EDUCAUSE Breakfast - Data Analytics

Author: Event Admin

Date of Event: October 28, 2015
Where: Independent Colleges of Indiana, 30 S Meridian St #800, Indianapolis, IN 46204
Time: 7:00 am - 8:00 am (Eastern Time)

Are you attending EDUCAUSE? Join us for breakfast and embrace the power of predictive analytics! Universities are turning to new data sources to identify those students who need a nudge toward success. The promise of predictive analytics in higher education continues to entice—for good reason. It can change student and University outcomes.

In this discussion, we will look at why most institutions are struggling to leverage new and traditional data points they gather about students, let alone the other data sources needed to ensure actionable insights around student attraction, progression, and retention. Secondly, it’s almost impossible to buy an effective packaged solution off the shelf when a data mix that works at one school may not be relevant at another. We’ll discuss what options are available. Finally, the creepiness factor—just how intrusive can schools be in tracking the actions of their students and how do we protect student level data?

Come meet our Director of Business Analytics, Hillary Delabar, over breakfast and learn how powerful predictive analytics can benefit your educational institution!
