The Defense Information Systems Agency is set to terminate an enterprise collaboration tool on the Department of Defense’s Non-classified Internet Protocol Network starting Sept. 1, in line with DOD’s move to Microsoft Office 365 cloud infrastructure.

DISA said Wednesday it will implement a phased approach for the Defense Collaboration Services program decommissioning process and that the DCS program office will limit performance and patching functions until deactivation.

The program’s instant messaging and web conferencing applications will continue to run on the department’s Secure Internet Protocol Router Network through fiscal year 2023.

According to a fact sheet, common access cards secure the DCS system across the Pentagon’s unclassified and classified networks.
