Join us for Thursday's BSPUG meeting as we host an informative session on Microsoft Cloud Technologies
In this session, Adam Levithan and Jill Hannemann of Portal Solutions
Featured Topic: The State of the Union: Microsoft's Push to the cloud, how do we think about SharePoint (Understanding SharePoint Online)
The “New” Office 365 and SharePoint Online has launched and Microsoft is out on the campaign trail to encourage organizations to look at the cloud as a viable solution.
Whether you’re a business owner, IT professional or consultant this movement is at odds with how SharePoint has grown over the last 10 years (yes I’m including 2003).
We’ll take a look at value SharePoint online may provide, the new paradigms of development and maintenance, and the possible benefits to your organization.
The talk will finish with a few real life examples for you to bring your boss, client or co-workers.
- Advantages of cloud based implementations
- Value-add of SharePoint Online
- Best practices of migrating to a cloud based implementation
