Title: Getting Started with Office 365
Synopsis: So your business is getting rid of its old e-mail provider and has asked you to investigate this Office 365 thing and you’ve been tasked to setup a tenant and get it operational quick. No worries mate, we’ve got you covered. In this session we’ll run through the basics of Office 365, what it means to you from a licensing perspective, for an end user perspective, from a service description perspective and most importantly how to provision a tenant, setup user accounts and setup your DNS entries so that you can start collaborating.
We’ll finish this session up with planning for considerations for more advanced topics around directory synchronization and federation.
