Claudia, That all sounds pretty amazing. Did you have an in-house app development team before working with Microsoft tools? If so, has the institution done any research into productivity or cost changes due to the switch? Your story sounds like another that I bet many others in the group would ...

I think it would be great to hear more about this process. Would you be willing, at some point, to talk about this to the group at large?

I see your point. It is certainly a good one. I'm open to changing it according to group consensus. I think I was looking at how the term "Microsoft 365" is perceived by users rather than what it actually is.
