Case Study: Rock Island-Milan School District

Rock Island-Milan is a school district that oversees 14 different schools in Illinois. They had been using Active Directory® hardware for a while, but when it became time to upgrade, Rock Island decided to look for new innovations in the directory space. They knew that they needed a solution that could manage Macs, integrate with G Suite and Office 365, and strengthen the control they had over their multiple networks. Not an easy checklist to fill in.

Rock Island-Milan’s Case Study

“The more we looked into JumpCloud, it fit the bill for everything we needed all in one nice package.”

Rock Island likely could have justified upgrading their Active Directory instance if they only had to worry about the outdated hardware and the expensive licensing. But since their environment included G Suite and Macs, there were a lot of variables that Active Directory just couldn’t handle easily.

Rock Island also wanted to take better control of their WiFi networks. Students were gaining access to the faculty WiFi network and using up the bandwidth. Again, Active Directory didn’t offer a solution.

Fortunately, while searching for directory solutions, Rock Island-Milan came across JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service® platform. Now, they have been able to address many of their challenges and have saved money in the process.
