ScienceLogic Management Platform Fast-Tracks New Technology Adoption at California School District

Desert Sands Unified School District Modernizes IT Operations Management With ScienceLogic

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - May 30, 2012) - The Desert Sands Unified School District (DSUSD), a La Quinta, Calif.-based public school district with more than 30,000 students, faculty, and staff, selected and deployed the ScienceLogic Inc. IT operations management platform to optimize and modernize its mission-critical IT operations. By leveraging ScienceLogic for network, systems, and application management, the district now has visibility and comprehensive control across their IT assets, allowing DSUSD to confidently and quickly launch new technologies and services and align with key school initiatives.

"Our ScienceLogic platform has already paid for itself. Proactive monitoring and alerts prevented a failure in our Microsoft Exchange system and helped us to rapidly recover from a major power outage in the area," said Ruben Garza, network specialist at Desert Sands Unified School District. "ScienceLogic gives us the information and visibility we never had."

Committed to adopting technologies to maximize e-learning opportunities and expand school-wide communications, the over-taxed DSUSD IT team needed a robust management solution that would help take over some of the daily workload. They leverage ScienceLogic to simplify monitoring and management and to provide a single pane of glass view of service management SLA views across all technology assets. As a result, the DSUSD IT team can shift its focus from maintaining existing equipment to investing in forward-looking initiatives -- including support for "Bring Your Own Device," deployment of WiFi across 34 campuses, and implementation of a new VCE Vblock private cloud platform.

"The Desert Sands Unified School District doesn't view technology as nice-to-have; rather, we leverage the most powerful IT solutions to help our students achieve academic success on a daily basis," said Chuck King, manager of computer networks at Desert Sands Unified School District. "In this economic climate, it's never been more important for us to do more with less and nimbly. We found ScienceLogic at just the right time; our small team was working way too hard just to keep up with what we had already deployed. Now, we trust the ScienceLogic platform to proactively alert us to anything that needs attention in our current infrastructure, while we get on with the job of what comes next."

"The Desert Sands Unified School District's IT team needed a solution that would free up time to spend on what's most important for their e-learning initiatives," said Scott Sherwood, senior vice president of sales for ScienceLogic. "The ScienceLogic platform helped them streamline IT operations and gave them the time, confidence, and solid management base to launch new technologies quickly and efficiently."
