Scope Users: Faculty, staff, students and affiliates Functions: Email, calendar and chat No preconceptions as we plan….
Possible different solutions For different user populations (e.g. students and faculty/staff) By function (email, calendar, chat) By interaction (PC, mobile, etc.)
Requirements and assessment framework may include…. – Evaluation of web user interface – Compatibility with UIs commonly used by our users (e.g. iCal, Outlook, Thunderbird) – Won’t actually assess the clients – Focus on standards that allow a wide variety of clients to operate effectively
Stakeholders Academic Departments, business-administrative focused users Administrative Council Administrative Process Redesign Project Administrative Units Alternative consumers of the calendar information Campus IT Policy Forum Information Technology Committee Instruction Madison Technology Advisory Committee R25 and EMS users

Higher Ed Overview Recent survey of 31 research universities – 11 have moved to the “cloud” for student email, most Google but several MS Live – 15 are planning to/moving students to the cloud – Most evaluating a move to the cloud or a hosted solution (e.g. hosted Exchange)
What are your colleagues at other institutions doing?
What we’ve heard More storage Better integration across calendaring systems – Few people use just one – Few people interact with people who use the same one Better integration between components Better user interfaces Possibility to retain email services after graduation
What we’ve heard Auto-populate calendar with class events Auto-contact persistence Auto-save email drafts Pre-populate groups (class lists, etc.)
What’s important to you? Who do you need to work with? What does a campus service need to work with – Other ECC services? – Other services? What works well with current services (WiscMail, WiscCal, WiscChat)? What doesn’t work well? Features you like from other providers? Things you don’t like from other providers?
