Uniformed Services University Of Health Sciences (USU) Moves Email To The Cloud
Recently, the Uniformed Services University, a Federal organization with over
9,000 members restricted by the Department of Defense (DoD) security
requirements is saving approximately $85,000 annually with a secure, cloud-based
email solution. Below is an excerpt from their story.
The Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) is the Nation's federal health sciences university. With over 9000 faculty, staff, and students, the University is committed to excellence in military medicine and public health during peace and war.
As USU continued to grow and technology evolved, the University began looking at alternative options to its existing on-premise Novell email system. USU wanted to enable more effective collaboration, but still maintain the tight security controls required by the Department of Defense (DoD). Without much flexibility built into its system USU had to take multiple steps to get even the easiest collaboration tasks completed. The email system didn’t offer anything more than basic messaging and lacked storage capacity and complementary collaboration tools and so they set out to find something better.
USU set three main objectives:
- Improve communication and collaboration while adding additional storage
- Provide better integration with the existing learning management system (LMS)
- Reduce costs
