ECNO 標誌

「安大略」的教育運算網路(ECNO)是一種組織,它會針對安大略的 72 K-12 school 面板(2000000學生)共同尋找並執行有效的 IT 解決方案。The Educational Computing Network of Ontario (ECNO) is an organization that collaboratively finds and executes effective IT solutions for Ontario’s 72 K-12 school boards (2 million students). ECNO 是負責掌握最新的運算技術,因為它們與省下的教育目標相關。ECNO is tasked with keeping up on the latest computing technologies as they relate to the education goals of province of Ontario. 他們讓 IT 基礎結構的建議,並與會員的學校面板分享最佳作法。They make IT infrastructure recommendations to and share best practices with the member school boards.

學校面板是自發的,可以自由地實作為其本身的 IT 策略,以達到最大效果。The school boards are autonomous and are free to implement their own IT strategies for what works best for them. 例如,一個學校面板使用 Configuration Manager 專門用來散發應用程式,而另一個則只用于機器映射處理和少量的應用程式。For example, one school board uses Configuration Manager exclusively to distribute applications, while another uses it only for machine imaging and a small percentage of apps.

在 ECNO 的範圍內,共用技術服務專案小組會評估、測試和封裝450協力廠商應用程式的應用程式類別目錄,以滿足 K –12個學生和員工的需求。Under the umbrella of ECNO, the Shared Technology Services Project Team evaluates, tests, and packages an app catalog of 450 third party apps for the spectrum of needs for K–12 students as well as staff.

到目前為止,ECNO STS 小組已透過 MSIX 封裝工具,以及 MSIX 工具箱中包含的大量轉換工具,轉換了大部分的應用程式。To date, the ECNO STS Team has converted most of their apps via the MSIX Packaging Tool and the Bulk Conversion tool included in the MSIX Toolbox.

ECNO 目前在合作夥伴中心有大約170個應用程式,其中十個學校面板連結到其 LOB 帳戶。ECNO currently has around 170 apps in Partner Center, with ten school boards linked to their LOB account. 兩個目前允許以「自助」方式存取其存放區中的應用程式。Two are currently allowing access on a ‘self-service’ basis to our apps in their store. 第三個已 Configuration Manager 連結至其存放區,且想要以這種方式新增對我們應用程式的存取權。The third has Configuration Manager linked to their store already and is looking to add access to our apps that way. 還有六個更多想要透過 Intune 進入軟體管理/指派,並已要求一些範例應用程式來使用。Six more are looking to move into software management/assignment via Intune and has requested some sample apps to work with. 另外,另一個學校面板會完成專案,將其 Ipad 以 MDM 工具的形式移至 Intune,然後將 Windows 裝置移至 Intune (他們會在這裡使用 MSIX 和存放區作為其軟體發佈模型)。And another school board is finishing a project to move their iPads into Intune as an MDM tool and then will be moving Windows devices into Intune (where they are looking at using MSIX and the store as their software distribution model). 當面板移至採用 Intune/Configuration Manager 時,他們預期會有更多的主機板開始切換。They expect more boards to start switching over as they move to adopt Intune/Configuration Manager.

「這是一項推播,可讓我們在 COVID-19 期間,將軟體提供給無法在學校網路上使用的使用者。AppV 封裝已 boon 到我們多年,而下一次反復使用 MSIX 時,可讓我們為我們的員工和學生提供他們所需的軟體,並使用現代化且順暢的傳遞系統,從世界各地的網際網路連線。」"It’s a push in the right direction for us to deliver software to our users that are not able to be on a school network at this time during COVID-19. AppV packages have been a boon to us for years and this next iteration using MSIX will allow us to service our staff and students with the software they require using a delivery system that is modern and seamless from any internet connection in the world." -Jason David Flannery,Systems 工程師,Simcoe 縣地區學校委員會-Jason David Flannery, Systems Engineer, Simcoe County District School Board

使用 autopilot 將裝置註冊到 Windows Intune 之後,就可以輕鬆設定並輕鬆部署。It’s easy to configure and easy to deploy once we enrolled devices into Windows Intune using autopilot.

ECNO 利用 MSIX 取得哪些優點?What benefits ECNO is getting by leveraging MSIX?

  • MSIX 提供了從我們的 App-v 程式順暢地轉換的軟體部署的領導者。As a leader in software deployment for the school boards in Ontario, MSIX has provided a seamless transition from our App-V processes.
  • 可讓我們的學校面板保持最新的新式軟體部署工具和端點管理。Allows our school boards to keep current in modern software deployment tools and end-point management.
  • 針對我們的專案小組,it 的生產力更高,為學校面板提供了更輕鬆的部署和支援。For our project team it has increased productivity, provided easier deployment and support for our school boards.

「身為我們的 IT 小組致力於變得更敏捷,特別是在我們的距離學習之後,我們會依賴雲端等等。 我們的組織下一次的邏輯進化是雲端管理。我們希望以學校為基礎的 IT 人員專注于成功實現技術,而不是部署和疑難排解。我們在努力部署裝置和應用程式時,會與 ECNO 的 STS 小組密切合作,將我們在教室中使用的應用程式整合到雲端管理的方法中。」"As our IT team strives to become more agile, especially now with distance learning upon us, we are relying on the cloud more and more. The next logical evolution for our organization is cloud management. We want our school based IT staff to focus more on the successful implementation of technology, less on deployment and troubleshooting. As we work towards zero touch deployment of our devices and apps we will be working closely with ECNO's STS team to integrate the apps we all use in the classroom into our cloud managed approach." -小紅 Heuchert,資訊管理員,Peterborough 維多利亞 Northumberland Clarington 天主教學區 School 面板-Sean Heuchert, Manager of Information, Peterborough Victoria Northumberland Clarington Catholic District School Board
