Cisco Webex Service to Retire this Fall
Zoom Available Now
This spring, more than 7,000 remote staff, faculty, and students began using Zoom for teaching, collaboration and personal interactions across HMS. To leverage this momentum and optimize support for this service, HMS will be retiring the Cisco Webex tool suite at the end of our contract this fall.
To support this transition, HMS IT will no longer be issuing new accounts for Webex software products, and recommend that individuals and teams make the following adjustments as soon as possible.
