Technology news for UMD faculty, staff and students

Google Apps Updates

At the end of April there were 16,738 UMD accounts migrated into Google Apps. We are very near the end of the process. All incoming faculty staff and student accounts are now being provisioned directly in Google Apps. Although not all Health Care Component (HCC) Accounts have migrated, they are all eligible, and that process is well under way. About 300 departmental accounts have been migrated and the last should be done by the end of May.

This summer we expect to be able to begin the process of migrating Alumni and Retiree accounts into Google Apps. This is something we had hoped to do much earlier but complications with the HCC account migration and other technical issues took precedence.

Google Analytics was activated in late April and we expect Google Groups to be activated early this summer.
