Dallas' Challenge: Upgrade IT but Hold down High-Tech Costs
T.H.E. Journal, v31 n11 pS2 Jun 2004
Bringing the Dallas Independent School District (Dallas ISD) up to speed (as well as to a computer-to-student ratio of 3:1, up from its current respectable 4:1) requires, before additional desktops can be contemplated, a massive commitment to upgrading the network. Though HP has been a long-time partner with the Dallas ISD, the bidding for the contract was competitive. Several vendors offered some creative academic programs, but HP really hit the mark best overall. They listened to needs, tailored a solution specifically and delivered exactly what was asked for. This article briefly discusses the process that led up to the Dallas ISD choosing HP as their vendor.
