Battelle for Kids Maintains its Focus on Moving Education Forward by Leveraging Expedient's Advanced Solutions
"Since we began partnering with Expedient, Battle for Kids has reduced our overall cost in technology infrastructure, increased our speed, reliability and capability to support our clients, and ensured that our infrastructure is stable and effective."- Oscar Paredes, Managing Director of Technology, Battelle for Kids
Battelle for Kids (BFK) is a national not-for-profit organization focused on developing innovative services and solutions that empower teachers, leaders and school systems to advance educational equity and opportunity for all students. BFK collaborates with state departments of education, urban, suburban and rural schools, and other education-focused organizations in more than 30 states to move education forward.
Battelle for Kids was seeking a hosting partner it could trust to allow its internal team to stay focused on its organizational mission and developing technology solutions that accelerate efforts of school districts and state departments of education to improve educational equity and opportunity for all students.
To deliver its software solutions to educators, Battelle for Kids must have a reliable IT infrastructure that can handle the variable demand of the educational system. The organization wanted to move from purchasing its own hardware through capital expenditures to paying for managed services through operational expenses.
Battelle for Kids found the solution it was looking for with Expedient’s hybrid cloud offering, a combination of public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and physical colocation.
