  • Main message: you should have a strategy and you should have a policy.
    If you don’t think you have them, you do, you just have a sucky strategy and a dicey policy.
  • Transactions figure from 2011!
    Second-largest Moodle installation in the world.
    We are big, but we care.
    We have Big Data.
  • Speed, scale, quality of response
