Office 365


The transition involves four changes.  The first is the change to the UMB Active Directory from the local SON.  Second, is to unify network and UMID accounts to use the UMID as the single username.  Next, is the deployment of a desktop computer with Windows 10 and Microsoft Office 2016.  Finally, the addition of Office 365 to include OneDrive, 5 downloads of MS Office, full online email client, etc. for full time faculty and staff.
