New Signature is proud to announce a new partnership with LIM College in New York City, NY. As LIM prepares for a cloud migration, New Signature’s focus is to elevate the College’s collaboration space and guide their cloud journey with a roll-out of Microsoft’s Office 365 and an Azure identity solution. This partnership will unlock all the flexibility and connectivity that a cloud experience can offer to LIM students, faculty, and staff.
LIM College is a fashion-focused business college in midtown Manhattan offering master’s, bachelor’s, and associate degree programs. As a pioneer in experiential education, LIM fosters a unique connection between real-world experience and academic study in business principles. An LIM College education empowers students to become accomplished professionals in a highly competitive, dynamic business environment.
LIM College will be working alongside New Signature to begin taking steps toward a cloud environment, rolling out Microsoft Office 365 as a first step. Leveraging all the best Microsoft tools will help the College remain technologically relevant among students, faculty, and staff, while empowering users to achieve more from any location, with the mobility and security that the Azure and Microsoft Office 365 suite provides.
This migration will also set the stage for additional technological roll-outs. LIM College is already utilizing Microsoft on-premises technology, so this solution represents a natural elevation of their existing environment. Over time, LIM plans to implement new capabilities, such as Microsoft Teams, and will work closely with faculty and staff to integrate similar tools into classrooms and business offices.
After an extremely rigorous evaluation process, LIM College selected New Signature for their deep expertise with Office 365 and broad experience across the Office 365 and Azure cloud work streams. In addition, New Signature is a Microsoft-only consultancy that offers additional services in every stage of solution—from planning and building, through operation and optimization over time. LIM College is taking the first steps toward the cloud, but also looking ahead, with plans to implement progressive AI and machine learning technologies in their classrooms in the future.
“New Signature has been fantastic in helping us understand the capabilities of Office 365 and how we can leverage them. They are helping to ensure the College remains relevant for the future within the cloud ecosystem. Selecting the right partner was important to us, and with New Signature’s Microsoft cloud expertise, along with excellence in terms of engineering, customer experience, and project flexibility, it made for an easy and natural choice.” – Maurice Morency, Chief Technology Officer, LIM College
