What would it be like if UVM had a different system for email? A new
Webmail? A new calendar program? Our own instant messaging system, or
online collaboration tools? Or significant enhancements to the systems
already in use?
An Email and Calendar Advisory Committee been working to answer those
questions. They've evaluated vendor proposals, and have invited four
companies to campus to show us in detail how their products work. The
demonstrations are open to everyone.
February 24, Thursday -- CommuniGate Pro, 1:00 - 3:00 pm, Waterman Grace
February 25, Friday -- Microsoft Exchange, 1:00 - 3:00 pm, Hall B, Given.
March 3, Thursday -- Mirapoint, 1:00 - 3:00 pm, Waterman Grace Coolidge
TBA -- Oracle Collaboration Suite
The sessions are aimed at all of us who use email or group calendars,
and IT support personnel are especially encouraged to attend. There
will be evaluation forms for feedback about each of the products.
Anything you can do to get the word out to friends and colleagues will
be much appreciated.
