Nine Weeks left for Remaining Users to Move into Google Apps
Given our positive experience so far, we expect all remaining users will have transitioned into Google Apps by the end of the fiscal year.
Active Directory Project Moving Forward
In February we moved 200 workstations to Active Directory. On average it takes approximately one hour per computer to make the transition. Some computers requiring software updates take longer.
ITSS and CLA Staff to Present at EDUCAUSE
ITSS and College of Liberal Arts (CLA) will be sharing experiences in change management and the concurrent rollout of Google Apps and Active Directory at UMD in an upcoming EDUCAUSE presentation.
