Centralized Active Directory and Exchange Services Consolidation Continues

IET continues to collaborate with the Office of Administration (OOA) to consolidate their existing decentralized Microsoft Exchange servers into a centralized calendaring and email service provided through the campus Data Center (see windows.ucdavis.edu). This partnership provided a perfect opportunity for IET and OOA to join and supplement each other's resources and expertise for the benefit of both units as well as other campus units that have expressed interest in following suit. A total of approximately 1,400 staff members, representing eight departments, are involved in this transition. It is anticipated that most OOA departments will have migrated by the end of April 2006. In the next few months, IET will be migrating to the centralized Exchange services hosted by the Data Center.
