The pilot phase of the Azure project started on 15.09.2020. The virtual kick-off event on 15 and 16.09.2020 was planned and carried out jointly by the IT Center and Microsoft.

Until September 2021 the handling of selected pilot customers will be tested. The findings and experiences will be collected and evaluated. The pilot phase is accompanied by the IT Center, the data protection officer of the RWTH and the staff councils.

The goal of the pilot phase is to implement and continuously improve the integration into the processes of the university. In addition, the exact use cases are to be better known and a corresponding service agreement is to be made with the staff councils. Specifically, the integration refers, for example, to billing and invoicing, connection to identity management and the ordering process itself.
