Divided across two campuses and strategically located at either end of the island, The Canadian International School (CIS) provides elementary to high school education for almost 3,000 students in Singapore.
Typical of any modern educational institution, technology plays a major role in the management and administration of the school, as well as in student learning. All students and teachers use Apple computers or, the in younger grades, iPads, and everyone relies on Google Drive for collaboration.
CIS’ IT Department divides its responsibilities into three broad areas: IT support for more than 3,000 devices; network and servers; and applications that help the school function, such as student enrolment, student management and parent/teacher portal.
The performance of enterprise applications will have a direct impact on business activities and outcomes. The quality of the delivery of applications will depend on how smoothly the underlying data infrastructure operates. Common issues include:

• Many IT infrastructure and operations teams are stretched to the breaking point.
• Predictive analytics and machine learning can be applied to great effect.
