What are the UITS SharePoint and SharePoint Online services?

Note:
The SharePoint My Site service will be retired by the end of 2016. As of April 2016, requests for new My Site accounts are no longer accepted. For details, see About the SharePoint My Site retirement.

At Indiana University, the UITS SharePoint and SharePoint Online services are centralized, university-wide Microsoft Office SharePoint Server environments. UITS SharePoint is a legacy solution that is being phased out in favor of SharePoint Online. Both services provide sites for team collaboration and content management. My Sites, a feature of the legacy UITS SharePoint environment, are not offered in SharePoint Online.

The platform includes the following features and capabilities:

  • Collaboration and online content management
  • Document repositories to store, track changes in, and expire documents based on defined policies
  • Tight integration with Microsoft Office applications
  • Centralized search that is secure and context-aware, and permits granular control
  • Online document management providing easy collaboration and a centralized search
  • Social computing tools that allow communities to work together using wikis, blogs, and RSS feeds
Important:
My Sites and group sites are appropriate for use with personal files, and for work involving institutional data classified as Public or University-internal. My Sites and group sites are not appropriate for storing or sharing institutional data classified as Restricted or Critical, including data containing HIPAA-regulated PHI. Once an electronic document set becomes an institutional record, a migration path into the OnBase repository is required.
