UC Berkeley Item

To: Tech Task Force Participants:

Given that our District is considering a new electronic/mail system, I thought the following article/information might be useful.

The information is from the UC Berkeley website, and announces the University's selection of Google Apps for use as their primary email/calendar solution. What is especially interesting is the link to their assessment matrix used in determining their final selection and the FAQ that summarizes many common questions. I thought this information might be helpful in guiding our process/decision.

Campus Selects Google as New Email and Calendar Solution

BREAKING NEWS! After several months of detailed evaluation as part of the OE Productivity Suite project, and following on the recent CalMail outage, the campus has completed the selection process for a new campus calendar and email platform. We are pleased to announce that today we have signed a contract to provide our community with the full Google Apps for Education Suite. This solution will enable the campus to migrate all students, faculty, and staff to the new service during 2012. We will have more details available during January so check back to this site regularly for the latest information.

De Anza Web Report

Bradley created a web report using Google analytics. It tells us some key things, such as how many people connect to our De Anza site, what kind of device they use (computer, tablet, phone) and what kind of search words are used most often. Letha felt that this information would make an ideal presentation for the TTF.  Marty Kahn
