Microsoft to Host State’s Email, Calendars in Office 365 Cloud; Michael Donlan Comments

MicrosoftLogoTexas will migrate more than 100,000 state employees to email, web conferencing and calendar sharing in the Microsoft Office 365 cloud computing environment as the state aims to modernize its information technology.

Microsoft worked with the state’s Department of Information Resources to help Texas comply with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and Criminal Justice Information Systems requirements, the company said Feb. 15.

Several agencies require that information access be subject to privacy and security regulation.

“The familiarity of Office backed by deep investments in cloud security, privacy and compliance play an important role in how Microsoft is enabling city, state and federal agencies to move to the cloud,” said Michael Donlan, vice president for Microsoft’s state and local government business.

Cities, counties and other jurisdictions in the state can use Office 365 as well.
