Office365 Project Update

Some have asked, what’s the news with all that talk of migrating Evergreen email to cloud Microsoft Office365?  Here’s the deal. Computing and Communication (C2) staff worked very closely with Microsoft over the course of spring quarter and into early summer with the intent to go live with the new services before fall. Unfortunately, in the testing phase we discovered some flaws with some of the underlying technologies that we rely on to automate and manage these processes, The result is that we are re-evaluating a new timeline based on the need to upgrade these core legacy systems. Our focus has turned to re-architecting these systems which we refer to in the collective as Identity and Access Management (IAM). This will be the most pressing C2 project over the next few months and once this is completed we can turn back to Office365 and providing all those services to students, faculty and staff.
