The Statewide E-Mail Consolidation is a component of the of the IT Transformation Project. The new model will leverage the benefits of a single statewide email system, migrating most Executive Branch e-mail users, when significant cost saving opportunity presents itself, from legacy systems to an enterprise NYSeMail Service hosted by a private-public cloud arrangement and developing a single statewide user directory.
By consolidating all State agencies' email systems into a single system, the State will gain operational efficiencies that are anticipated to result in significant savings and will position the State for unified communications beyond email, which will further lower information technology costs.
In 2010, ITS began migrating state agencies to the state's NYSeMail platform operated by ITS. ITS will continue to work with the Executive Chamber and Division of Budget on the statewide consolidated email system.
