+ - Why that huge Canadian school district went with Office 365 over Google->

Submitted by mattydread23
mattydread23 (2793761) writes "Whenever you read one of those "x goes Google" or "y chooses Office 365" stories, you should be a little skeptical — the full story is often deeper and more interesting. In this case, the Peel School District already had an enterprise agreement for Office for 15,000 teachers. It got the 150,000 student Office licenses for free. But the district's CIO Mark Keating explains he could've gotten Google for free as well: "We would get Google Apps for free as well for education, so it's a level playing field. Companies want people to use these products at an early age...We thought Office 365 was a richer offering now because it has an Office suite as well as a new feed, chat, blogging, and more...It's all about the social aspects of Office 365" he told CITEworld."
