Tech Talk: Moving Data and Email, Colleague Update

March 6, 2015

Office 365 Migration
CWI's email migration is almost complete with over 1000 accounts having been migrated!  All staff accounts have been successfully migrated.  All faculty account migrations will be completed this weekend.

Data Center Move
The plans for moving all of our data center services are moving along quickly.  We are on schedule to move all of the equipment starting the afternoon of March 21.  Once we begin the move all central services such as Colleague, Blackboard, MyCWI, File shares, and VPN will be unavailable for approximately 24 hours.  IT will be working through the night disconnecting, moving and installing about 30 devices that make up the core network and servers.

Colleague User Interface Update
This Sunday, March 8, IT will be implementing the Colleague User Interface 4.5 update. Monday morning users will see an updated look to the user interface but it will maintain the same functionality.
