  7. Success Stories SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY “…it was an easy decision to go with Windows 8 tablets over the Apple iPad. First, iPads wouldn’t run Pearson electronic course materials that use Adobe Flash technology, and we are heavily invested in Pearson products. And when we did a TCO analysis between the two platforms, Windows 8 on a Dell tablet was clearly more cost effective—over four years we calculated up to a $4 million savings going with Windows 8.” –David Crain, Chief Information Officer FARGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS “Windows 8 provides the ‘no compromises’ experience everyone has been looking for. It doesn’t force us to choose between a device that you can only read from and that doesn’t connect to a keyboard, or a device geared toward creating documents, presentations and other projects. It’s the best of both worlds: Teachers and students will be able to leverage existing curriculum and resources already used in the classroom.” –Bill Westrick, IT Director JACKSON-MADISON COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM “We chose Windows 8 because we need much more than a consumption-only device for online assessments to help prepare students for success.” –Chuck Jones, Chief of Technology
