Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac now available to Faculty and Staff. Lab rollout to start tonight.

Faculty can now upgrade their Microsoft installations to the latest release, version 2016.  This will not be a forced upgrade at this time and is in the control of the Faculty member to decide when to move forward.

When your ready to move forward, you will find the individual applications ( Outlook, Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and OneNote ) listed in the Managed Software Center application under the “Software” tab.  The software requires your computer to be on Mac OS X Yosemite 10.x or later and will not show up if you are not on this OS version. read more

CIAS Software Catalog is up

Hello CIAS Students, Faculty and Staff

CIAS Tech is currently populating our new Software Catalog for the CIAS community.  We are hopeful that having this catalog will allow our users to be informed where our lab computing environment currently stands.  As always, we make every effort to stay current with the vendors’ releases, but due to our complex environment, updates ( especially major releases ) can take sometime to roll out.

Please take a look and let us know if you have any feedback.  Submit Feedback read more
