The purpose of this memo is to announce the delay of the Oracle (Corporate Time) Calendar migration to the campus-wide Connect environment. Our commitment is to deliver quality services, and at this point because of implementation challenges, we are unsure that we can provide high quality support for the Connect Calendar and the Connect Email services at the same time. As you know, we had intended to complete the Oracle Calendar migration this weekend. On Monday, December 9th, we discovered a version inconsistency between the Connect environment, the Administrative Services Exchange environment, and the Student Affairs Exchange environment which would have prevented efficient sharing of calendar information across those three environments. The soonest our partners can resolve the version issue will be February. In addition, we are still actively working with Microsoft to resolve a small number of significant Connect Email issues. Therefore, we have decided to delay the calendar migration.
The Connect Email migration has taken place and we are focusing all our attention on ensuring that it meets the needs and expectations of the campus. In the meantime, we will work with experts in Student Affairs and Administrative Services as well as Microsoft to resolve calendar version issues as rapidly as we can. We will announce a new migration date as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
