Michigan Medicine recently joined with its campus partners in approving a new multi-year, university-wide contract with Microsoft that provides opportunities for each member – the Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint campuses, and Michigan Medicine – to build and tailor its own comprehensive “Microsoft 365” environment, based on each partner’s unique academic, research, and/or patient care needs.
Please note that the ITS-managed Microsoft 365 service for academic campuses is not permitted for Michigan Medicine business, education, patient care, or research use. Data or accounts created in Teams, SharePoint, and OneDrive in the ITS-managed service cannot be migrated to the Michigan Medicine environment.
HITS is currently developing a roadmap that will define how individual Microsoft products and services will be implemented across Michigan Medicine over the next two to three years. Key features will likely include a greater emphasis on “cloud”-based tools such as Office 365, more integrated document sharing and storage solutions, and unified communications services.
