UW-Madison transition to Microsoft Office 365 approved to restart

University of Wisconsin-Madison officials announced in a Thursday statement the restart of the Microsoft Office 365 email and calendar project, expecting the changes to increase efficiency and cut down costs on campus.

Officials put the project on hold for independent evaluation, specifically to reassess project leadership, the use of non-standard Microsoft migration, email address set-up and calendar data migration.

After deliberation, officials hired new, independent consultant Mark Treiber as project leader. The Division of Information Technology, campus developers and Microsoft consultants addressed additional issues with the program.

The officials will keep some aspects of the original plan, including Microsoft-approved use of UW-Madison migration tools, a firstname.lastname@wisc.edu address and directory synchronization.

University officials said in the statement they expect to convert to the new system early this summer after DoIT confirms the preferred conversion dates.
