Zimbra in Education

By | April 14, 2008

One of the largest areas of growth for Zimbra has been the educational sector. Perhaps it’s the simple calendar and mail sharing…or maybe it’s the built-in instant messaging. Since the beginning, Zimbra has been a perfect fit for thousands of Educational Institutions around the world.

After receiving a suggestion from one of our large EDU customers, we decided to open up a “Zimbra in Education” forum.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I worked for six years as an IT Director for a school district in Arizona. I know the many challenges that our EDU IT administrators face. Things like Windows Group Permissions, and Internet Filters, and HIPPA and FERPA Compliance. Schools are like a revolving door. I remember every summer, locking out old accounts and provisioning new accounts. ugh, it was the bane of my existence…

So just how do you handle those issues? How are you integrating with authentication sources? What about login scripts? Well, we hope that by opening this new forum, our EDU crowed will share their stories (both bad and good). Take a look: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/zimbra-education/
