Australian schools dump Outlook for the biggest corporate Gmail deployment ever

by yogesh

Apparently the NSW Department for Education is deciding to do away with MS Outlook and instead adopt the Gmail account for its 1.3 million school students. SMS Management and Technology will implement the new Gmail System along with Google and Telstra, under a 3-year deal worth $9.5 million over three years, with a two year extension option. In comparison, the earlier MicroSoft deal was installed by Unisys under a contract worth $33 million over 3 years, but extended by another 3 years. It was built in 2003, but actually reached the student during 2007.
