Through IntraActive Connect the Danish municipality of Horsens has minimized their need of Office 365 subscriptions thus reducing the amount of educational staff who had a subscription to both the administrative and educational Office 365 tenant. And they've done so without compromizing security.
IntraActive Connect for Schools and their Local Governments
Educational staff in schools and local administrative staff can now collaborate across Office 365 tenants
Many local authorities face the issue of having separate IT systems from their contacts at the local schools. This creates a need for the administrative and educational staff to easily collaborate and share information through emails, calendar, intranet and collaboration portals.
IntraActive Connect bridges the two worlds
IntraActive Connect is the product that breaks down this barrier. IntraActive Connect enables you to collaborate across 2 or more Office 365 tenants, thereby giving the user experience of collaborating on the same platform.
IntraActive Connect makes it possible for educational and administrative staff to easily collaborate on a joint intranet and share each others calendars.
The Danish municipality of Vejle has used IntraActive Connect to move educational staff to the same Office 365 tenant as their students in order to improve collaboration between teachers and students. At the same time the staff has kept their access to the intranet on the administrative Office 365 tenant.
Use case for IntraActive Connect
Jane is an administrative employee in the local city hall who needs to collaborate with Peter, a teacher at one of the local schools.
IntraActive Connect connects the administrative and educational staff without compromising security.
Jane and Peter can collaborate in the administrative collaboration sites and Jane can easily book meetings with Peter in Outlook where she can see his availability, just like Peter can look up Jane in his Outlook. However, Jane has not been given access to the collaboration site that Peter and his fellow teachers use to plan next years schedules.
