Are you looking for a highly qualified software development team?

Software Development UK is committed to helping the education sector overcome challenges that are impeding the industry. We aim to help the education sector improve their cybersecurity posture and have access to affordable IT solutions.

Despite the challenges that the education sector faces in terms of staffing and funding, cybersecurity should be a priority. Cyberattacks are becoming more frequent and more severe, and they are compromising student safety.

Educational institutions are entrusted with safeguarding their students, many of whom are minors. But a weak cybersecurity infrastructure can put them at risk. The sector needs to do everything it can to ensure its applications and systems are protected, and work to overcome any challenges.

Investing in cybersecurity is essential to protecting students and ensuring that educational institutions can fulfill their mission. The sector must work to overcome any challenges in order to keep students safe. Software Development UK and our IT partners offer comprehensive cybersecurity solutions that address these problems.

When it comes to using technology in the classroom, one of the biggest challenges teachers face is outdated or poor quality legacy equipment. Not only does using outdated equipment come with pain and frustration for students and teachers, but according to Microsoft, 70-80% of the top 10 malware risks could be avoided by using updated technology.

There are some simple steps that schools can take to ensure that their students and teachers are using the best possible equipment. By investing in quality hardware and software, and keeping up to date with updates, schools can help minimize the risk of security threats and provide a much more productive environment for both teachers and students to work in.

Software Development UK is seeking to close the digital divide by helping schools implement a robust cybersecuirty infrastructure and address challenges relating to legacy hardware and software solutions. This will help ensure that all children have the opportunity to develop the digital skills they need for the future.

{Frequently Asked Questions}

A project milestone plays an invaluable role in project planning and development as they give all team members a clear indication of how a project is developing.

An effective software project milestone should serve as a marker-point within the project’s life-cycle and growth. When milestones are met, it is clear for everyone on the team that things are progressing as they should.

If a milestone is not met, it gives management and stakeholders a clear understanding of where the challenges lie in a project and how to overcome them.

Project management milestones help keep work on-track, as they highlight key dates and events in which project development must match expectations. Some project management milestone examples could include:

■ Crucial management or stakeholders meetings
■ Key deliverable dates
■ Beginning and endpoints for each phase of a project
■ Stakeholder approval dates

While software development may ‘survive’ without milestones, it is always advised to keep everyone focused on the same goals.

Without clearly defined milestones to summarise the development of a project, it runs the risk of scope-creep, resulting in setbacks, delays, and even failure.

The number of milestones that any one project have should largely depend on size and project scope.

Smaller-scale projects often have fewer milestones than larger, more complex ones.

When working out milestones, you shouldn’t think in terms of numbers but rather in project progress and development. The most effective and motivating milestones are those which fit naturally within the project’s life-cycle.
