Google Connect Migration

Migration to Google Connect — Winter 2018 project

Project Overview

SIS&T will be migrating email and other services to Google's G-Suite for Education, known on campus as Google Connect, in winter 2018. This move introduces a new collection of cloud computing productivity and collaboration software from Google, including popular web applications such as Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Hangouts, Sheets, and more, which are suitable for any device. More details will be coming in the near future.

Why Migrate to Google Connect?

Adopting and implementing Google Connect positions SIS&T and its partners in alignment with other campus IT organizations' direction to consolidate systems, streamline costs, increase collaboration, and enhance security.
