Tilmon, I would be happy to share what I learn with you.  Can you reach out to me again in a couple weeks, and I suspect that by then I will have accumulated a number of opinions?  Thanks.  Greg.

 

We are also looking at that migration. Please include me as well. Thanks.

We are currently on live@edu and have to plan a migration to 365 for some time next fall. live@edu is being discontinued

 

We are starting our migration now with the intention of completing by fall 2013. I would be happy to discuss the experience.

 

 

Cheers,

We are currently a live@edu customer and are migrating to Office 365 in June. We have a formal project underway and we are working with a 3rd party consulting company that is assisting us. We would be happy to talk to anyone who is interested in hearing where we are at in the process.

 

It is also safe to tell everyone that moving from a localized messaging environment to Microsoft’s cloud-based solution has been pain free and very gratifying.  Over the two years we’ve been using live@edu we’ve had two outages (very brief) and we’ve freed up system administrators time that is better served than spent working on a commodity technology service.

 

We moved both students and faculty/staff email to the service.

 

Thanks,

Hi Greg,

Furman University has been using Office365 for over a year. All students moved to Office365 last March, and we used a phased approach for faculty and staff (started January 2012 and finished moving everyone to Office365 in September.) While we didn't move from Exchange, we did move from another system that was hosted on campus.

Let us know how we can help.

Best,

Fred

A pretty good BAA is available under the Net+ contract Internet 2 negotiated with Microsoft. With the BAA in place Office 365 is HIPPA compliant. Charlie McMahon Vice President of Information Technology Chief Technology Officer Tulane University 504-988-8555 (O) 504-256-6688 (C)
Thank you Stephen. Cheers.-grish >>> Stephen G Landry 2/23/2013 9:52 AM >>> Dave, Yes, that's a valid point. You do need to have some on premises Microsoft services, such as Active Directory and Forefront Identity Management, to make stand up Office 365 for your users. Since we're a Microsoft Exchange shop, we already have most of what we need to manage Office 365. We're not thinking of this as standing up a free email service, rather we're thinking of this as moving our existing Microsoft Exchange infrastructure to the cloud. I agree the barrier to entry is probably steeper for campuses that don't have Microsoft Exchange on premises, but the barrier is much lower if you already have the necessary Microsoft infrastructure in place. Hope this helps. Steve Stephen G.

By way of background information for this discussion, below and attached are data from the 2012 Campus Computing Survey (in aggregate and by sector) for the percentages of institutions that have migrate student and faculty email to third-party providers (primarily Google and Microsoft), and also to cloud-based "office" applications.

The survey data clearly reveal an institutional willingness to migrate student email while, at present, also to retain the institutional hosting of faculty and administrative email accounts.  Additionally, as of fall 2012, less than a fifth of campuses participating in the annual Campus Computing Survey reported migrating to hosted "office" applications provided by either Google or Microsoft (range: 25.6 pct for private universities to 14.8 pct for public four-year colleges).



My thanks to all who participated in the 2012 survey.

Subject: Re: Office365 for Education
All - There are 7 universities involved in the service validation for O365 as an Internet2 NET+ contract -- and as Charlie has indicated, the O365 Amendment that has been negotiated (which builds on the earlier amendment negotiated by the Common Solutions Group) includes the BAA and provides for most if not all of our community's compliance needs. For those that are interested, we now have in place a NET+ Microsoft Azure offering that is based on an amendment that has near identical language regarding compliance (HIPAA/BAA) and allows for the purchase of Azure compute and storage using an "irrevocable right of use" (IRU) model (may allow for treatment of such purchases as "capital assets"). We are a few weeks away from having the broader agreements for O365 finalized to where we can announce the NET+ O365 offering as ready for early adoption/general availability. I should note that we are working with Microsoft and the participating universities to enhance support, develop a more streamlined migration process, establish a "community of practice" site where universities and Microsoft technical resources can share best practices (and concerns), and to work out how integration with InCommon can be accomplished. If you would like to get further information, please write netplus@internet2.edu or reach out to me or Andrew Keating (andrew@internet2.edu).

Perhaps it's just me, but Microsoft seems to change their game every couple of years and causes unnecessary burden on IT, and more importantly their users.  So I will ask you this, you spent all the time and effort to move to live@edu, but "surprise"they are now discontinuing that service after marketing it as the best thing since sliced bread.  Now you are forced to move to Office 365 (or another system) and must spend  all those IT resources yet again after only a couple of years ... what happens when Microsoft Marketers change things again in a couple of years and force you to once again migrate your users to yet another system?

Google with it's own issues fortunately doesn't play this game.

My only point is that while Microsoft and Google have "Free" EDU offerings for email, calendering, docs and such, there seems to be a much higher administrative cost to Microsoft's offering, which appears to be a recurring cost as Microsoft changes their mind rather than a one time cost like with Google.

Just something to think about....

Grish, When campuses are talking about Office 365 they're referring to the commercial offering that's free to higher education, not the free consumer service. A group of pretty security-aware colleges and universities have negotiated a fairly comprehensive license for this service, which Microsoft seems to offer to all higher education clients. I'm not sure if that license is available on the Web, but the short version is that the campuses own the data and control the access, so it's about as safe and secure as a campus' on-premises hosted email would be. The commercial rate for the same service would be fairly pricey, and beyond what most colleges could afford. There are additional add-ins available like archiving and eDiscovery that are not included in the free offering but are available to higher education customers cost a few dollars per month per mailbox. Hope this helps! Steve Stephen G.

A pretty good BAA is available under the Net+ contract Internet 2 negotiated with Microsoft. With the BAA in place Office 365 is HIPPA compliant. Charlie McMahon Vice President of Information Technology Chief Technology Officer Tulane University 504-988-8555 (O) 504-256-6688 (C)
Thank you Stephen. Cheers.-grish >>> Stephen G Landry 2/23/2013 9:52 AM >>> Dave, Yes, that's a valid point. You do need to have some on premises Microsoft services, such as Active Directory and Forefront Identity Management, to make stand up Office 365 for your users. Since we're a Microsoft Exchange shop, we already have most of what we need to manage Office 365. We're not thinking of this as standing up a free email service, rather we're thinking of this as moving our existing Microsoft Exchange infrastructure to the cloud. I agree the barrier to entry is probably steeper for campuses that don't have Microsoft Exchange on premises, but the barrier is much lower if you already have the necessary Microsoft infrastructure in place. Hope this helps. Steve Stephen G.

By way of background information for this discussion, below and attached are data from the 2012 Campus Computing Survey (in aggregate and by sector) for the percentages of institutions that have migrate student and faculty email to third-party providers (primarily Google and Microsoft), and also to cloud-based "office" applications.

The survey data clearly reveal an institutional willingness to migrate student email while, at present, also to retain the institutional hosting of faculty and administrative email accounts.  Additionally, as of fall 2012, less than a fifth of campuses participating in the annual Campus Computing Survey reported migrating to hosted "office" applications provided by either Google or Microsoft (range: 25.6 pct for private universities to 14.8 pct for public four-year colleges).



My thanks to all who participated in the 2012 survey.

Subject: Re: Office365 for Education
At Ithaca College, we are beginning to plan for migrating to O365 having just completed a migration to Live@edu over the holiday break.  So, we'll stay closely tuned to this dialog, and would also appreciate an opportunity to follow your specific progress, Jeff.

Mike Cunningham mentioned earlier in the thread that he is planning a Live@edu to O365 migration for "some time next fall".  My understanding is that Microsoft expects Live@edu users to have made the leap to O365 by September, which would be early in the fall.  What's your understanding of that expectation?  We are a little migration weary here and have lots of other things on our plate.

All - There are 7 universities involved in the service validation for O365 as an Internet2 NET+ contract -- and as Charlie has indicated, the O365 Amendment that has been negotiated (which builds on the earlier amendment negotiated by the Common Solutions Group) includes the BAA and provides for most if not all of our community's compliance needs. For those that are interested, we now have in place a NET+ Microsoft Azure offering that is based on an amendment that has near identical language regarding compliance (HIPAA/BAA) and allows for the purchase of Azure compute and storage using an "irrevocable right of use" (IRU) model (may allow for treatment of such purchases as "capital assets"). We are a few weeks away from having the broader agreements for O365 finalized to where we can announce the NET+ O365 offering as ready for early adoption/general availability. I should note that we are working with Microsoft and the participating universities to enhance support, develop a more streamlined migration process, establish a "community of practice" site where universities and Microsoft technical resources can share best practices (and concerns), and to work out how integration with InCommon can be accomplished.

Message from mike.cunningham@pct.edu

We have not been told exactly when our migration is going to happen. I think the process is that Microsoft contacts you and tells you when you have to move and you can then move on your time schedule or they will just move you on the date they told you, you are moving. There is an option to ask for an extension of 60 days (I think). We have not yet received our notification from Microsoft but we are hoping that will be late summer and then ask for the extension to place us into fall after students have returned. From a support perspective the worst time would be late spring when finals are coming up or over the summer when no one is on campus. 2-3 weeks after returning for the fall would be our desired upgrade window. So I guess I should have said we are hoping to plan it for Fall and will try to get Microsoft to agree.  I would think a lot of current live@edu users would prefer it that way.
