In early February Microsoft hosts its Global Education Partner Summit (GEPS) in Redmond, WA. SoftwareONE, as a key Microsoft Education Partner, will be attending and we look forward to sharing with our education network what we learn via the Microsoft Education Community.
The timing of the education summit couldn’t be better as we continue to see rapid economic and social change around the globe that impacts how education can equip the next generation of students for a stronger future. The World Bank World Development Report 2018 (WDR 2018) — is the first ever report devoted entirely to education in 2018. Human capital is the key to prosperous nations and one contributing factor to this is access to a solid education base.
In partnership with Microsoft, SoftwareONE is delivering software and cloud services to 86,000 education customers around the world. We are proud to serve schools, universities and research institutes, as well as large continuing education organizations across over 80 countries.

SoftwareONE ACADEMIC has invested and built new services, platforms and solutions with one goal – we are committed to bring our customers the most advanced and modern Microsoft education product experience. To date, here are just two examples of Microsoft solutions we have developed with our partner eco-systems:
