University of Central Florida: University Gains Communications Flexibility for the Future With New Messaging System
The University of Central Florida (UCF), the second-largest university in the United States, needed to retire its aging messaging system. UCF moved to Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 to take advantage of greater reliability and capabilities, such as support for Microsoft Outlook 2010 for multiple mobile devices and a full-featured web client, which would increase productivity for faculty and staff. UCF designed its migration to occur over a single weekend, during which it migrated 10,000+ faculty and staff mailboxes to Exchange Server 2010. Due to careful planning and communication, the migration went smoothly, and employees were quick to adapt to Exchange Server 2010 and work effectively right away.
