The examination and planning of the technical implementation and provision already began when the contract was signed last year. The first milestone was then the change in the previous MS Office use on private devices, which took place in February 2022.
The new licensing model now provides for person-related licences instead of the previous device-related licences. This has implications for the use of Microsoft products for work and study on official and private devices (computers/laptops/tablets), which will be explained in more detail here. In future, the prerequisite for using Microsoft products at work will be registration as a user in the new Microsoft "service package" at the University of Erfurt.
The most important thing in advance is that the changeover will take place automatically via the University Computer and Media Center (URMZ), users will not have to do anything else. The services provided up to now will also be retained. We will answer further questions in our FAQ.
