The logic behind the change

Big picture

Many of the benefits of the project will be invisible to most users. Still, this significant work lays a strong foundation for our department's future.

A simplified, stronger IT environment means a better experience for our staff and students.

The short-term benefits for users

The new approach also gives you access to leading-edge and cloud-based services and technologies. You'll enjoy features which you may not have been able to use previously.

It will be easy to remember your single username - your email address. If the department manages your device, the number of times you have to log on to use your applications will reduce. For some, this could mean five or six separate logons reduced to just one. Although this will not be the case if you have a personal device, you will still benefit. You will only need to enter a single username - your DoE email address.
