Background to the migration of Melb PC member accounts to G-Suite.

We are migrating away from Office 365 services

The club some years ago adopted Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise as the foundation for services such as email, office software, social medium and more. We did this on advice from Microsoft who were discontinuing the outlook .com service we had been using. As a recognized not-for-profit organization, Melb PC was permitted to make Office 365 cloud services available free of charge, and later, on payment, to provide access to the Office 365 ProPlus desktop suite.

More recently Microsoft has emphasised aspects of its terms and conditions that have led the Committee to conclude that there is a risk to maintaining our current level of service. Your Committee sees that as a major threat to the club.

The Committee has therefore decided to make a controlled transition away from any dependence on Microsoft services.

For more detailed information please see the all-member email of 23/4/2020 with the Subject “Important notice about Office 365 Enterprise” and/or the Office 365 group on Yammer.
