New online collaboration tool replacing DCO

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Over the next two months, the Defense Information Systems Agency is migrating to the new enterprise collaboration tool, Defense Collaboration Services. DCS is the replacement for Defense Connect Online, which will be discontinued June 24, 2015. DCS is already being used by DISA and is now available for use across the Department of Defense.

DCS is available on both NIPRNet and SIPRNet and is capable of recording sessions, session playback, desktop sharing, white boarding, text chat, and voting/polling. Users can register using their common access card or Public Key Infrastructure token at https://conference.apps.mil (or "smil.mil" on SIPRNet). No usernames or passwords are required and those without a CAC can still access meetings as guests.

All users should start evaluating DCS capabilities now to limit operational impacts and ensure a smooth transition. Online training is available through DISA every Tuesday and Thursday at 7 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. MST at https://www.dcs.apps.mil/ or SIPRNet: https://www.dcs.apps.smil.mil/.

Besides training, users should also consider downloading recorded DCO sessions as DCO hosted data will be removed June 24 and not available thereafter.

For information regarding DCS call the DISA help desk at (614) 692-0032, DSN 850-0032 or e-mail disa.dscc.eis.mbx.dcs-support@mail.mil.
