US Department of Health and Human Services moves to Microsoft Office 365

Technology consulting firm InfoReliance is moving the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)’s e-mail application and collaboration services to Microsoft Office 365 Government.

The US$92 million agreement will see InfoReliance transition approximately 125,000 seats to the e-mail solution, which is hosted in a Government Community Cloud (GCC), over a period of five years.

HHS joins the vast majority of US cabinet-level agencies, which, in whole or in part, have moved to Microsoft cloud computing solutions. The move to a cloud-based environment will enable HHS employees to collaborate more efficiently, allowing them to successfully meet their mission to provide the building blocks that Americans need to live healthy, successful lives.

The move also supports the overall agency and federal initiatives outlined in the Digital Government Strategy to improve efficiency and reduce overall operating costs, while improving citizen-facing services.

“By moving the Department of Labor and Department of Health and Human Services to the Microsoft Government Community Cloud, and by using Azure Government, InfoReliance has been leading the way with customers to recognise the cost, capability and compliance benefits of the Microsoft cloud,” said Greg Myers, vice president of Microsoft Federal. “Together, we are helping customers extend more mission-critical workloads into a truly cloud-enabled enterprise designed specifically with federal agencies’ unique needs for security in mind.”
