Upgrades for about 11,000 Hill computers began Oct. 8 and will continue through Nov. 9. Computers running the Standard Desktop Configuration 5.3 will be upgraded to SDC 5.5.

In addition, Microsoft Office 2013 will be upgraded to Office 2016.

SDC 5.5 offers new enhancements to address emerging cybersecurity threats.
