Azure enables companies to connect web and mobile applications to an existing IT environment. Through Azure, Rediker Software is able to create a seamless connection between its student information system, Administrator’s Plus, and the company’s web and mobile applications for parents, students and teachers. As a result, members of a school community using Rediker Software’s products can easily access up-to-date data such as student demographics, grades, attendance, schedules and discipline from the web or directly from a mobile device.
“To manage going from hundreds of thousands of users to over a million is extremely complex,” stated Rediker Software President Andrew Anderlonis. “Microsoft Azure empowers us to easily and cost effectively manage our web and mobile offerings to our quickly growing global user-base.”
Two years ago, Rediker Software only served about 20,000 administrators. But when the company expanded its software portfolio to include offerings for parents, student and teachers they began looking for a cloud solution on a global scale.
“Microsoft was a natural fit for us,” Anderlonis added. “The personal attention we receive in that relationship is key to our success and that’s something we wouldn’t have been able to accomplish with some of the other providers out there.”
Azure provides Rediker and its school communities with a cloud platform that is secure, scalable and cost-effective. Whether in the U.S. or abroad, parents, teachers and students receive a positive user experience with fast, reliable access to the information they need, anywhere – anytime.
“We are pleased that Rediker Software has chosen Microsoft Azure as its global cloud platform to enable parents, students and teachers to easily access their information wherever they are on a variety of devices,” said Nicole Herskowitz, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Microsoft Azure. “Rediker was able to take advantage of the Azure platform to quickly scale to over one million parents and students in a relatively short period of time.”
