Update on Office 365 Upgrade (B)


**This item is informational.  Approximate presentation time 10 minutes.**



In January 2018, the Information Technology department embarked on a project to upgrade the City of Gainesville to Microsoft’s Office 365 Government Community Compliance (GCC) Services with OneDrive. The CIO’s vision was to provide a reliable and available digital workspace in which City of Gainesville employees could work collaboratively from anywhere at any time. Microsoft Office 365 provides the City with the basic productivity applications necessary to get work done in the modern enterprise. This environment allows for efficiency in daily work and a reduction in hardware costs in the technology environment.


Additional collaborative offerings like Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Groups and SharePoint Online are available to the business units. Other products will be offered as they become available in the GCC environment. 


Fiscal Note

This upgrade was funded in the Information Technology Operations and Maintenance budget.
