Staff and faculty email moving to Office 365
Posted 2015 January 28
Wednesday January 28, 2015 Senior Communications Officer Craig Leroux recently spoke with Bo Wandschneider, Associate Vice-Principal (Information Technology Services) and Chief Information Officer, about the benefits and security of Office 365.
Bo Wandschneider, Associate Vice-Principal (Information Technology Services) and Chief Information Officer Craig Leroux: What is Office 365 and why is Queen's moving to that platform?
Bo Wandschneider: Office 365 is Microsoft's cloud-based collaborative suite that includes email and calendaring, secure file storage and sharing, and other collaborative functionality all synced across desktop and mobile devices. It provides more features, greater storage capacity and a higher level of security than we can provide on-premise.
Undergraduate and graduate students are already using Office 365 and are very pleased with the service. We are now in the process of migrating staff and faculty email and calendar accounts and expect the process to be complete in February.
