  • SharePoint Server

    Description Campus User License Type Operating System Price

    SharePoint Server is a software platform for collaboration and web publishing that combines a number of capabilities under a single server. These capabilities include portal, content management system, business intelligence, search, wikis, blogs, and application development. It enables users to perform a number of common tasks, such as publishing a web site or intranet, searching for content, managing content, or creating applications, but without having to install a separate server for each function.

    Here at the University of Minnesota, with few exceptions, we are utilizing the Google infrastructure solutions.

  • WinZip

    Description Campus User License Type Operating System Price

    WinZip software "compresses" large files into smaller files for transfer over a network or for storage.

    Because modern Windows and Mac operating systems now have integrated zipping capability, most people no longer require special software to un/zip. Usage of the WinZip software previously offered through OIT has dwindled considerably, so the maintenance contract will not be renewed. We are providing some information on useful alternatives to WinZip under the Ordering & Details section of this page.
