Introducing the OneDrive Perspectives Series

Introducing the OneDrive Perspectives Series

By Alistair Pugin | May 30, 2017

What can you accomplish in 20 minutes? You could run three miles; you could drive from Washington, D.C. to... well, the other side of the city; you could take a power nap (but not at your desk); or you could join one of our OneDrive Perspectives webinars and greatly improve your organization's success with OneDrive!

If you've been a OneDrive user, then you'll know how Microsoft has finally matured its OneDrive offering into a de facto document management and syncing tool for SharePoint. Even if you're new to OneDrive, this is big news. Though Microsoft has greatly expanded OneDrive's functionality and made it easier for all users, it can still be cumbersome to plan, deploy, and grow your information architecture on OneDrive—especially when creating file shares on a local server is so easy.

At Metalogix, we’ve seen many migration projects fail or incur serious delays due to incorrect planning, understanding, and deployment of OneDrive.  The unfortunate side effect of this is that a poor migration can have direct implications on how users work with and adopt content management on SharePoint. 

The good news? With some fairly simple best practices, you can massively improve not just the short-term effectiveness of your migration, but more importantly, the long-term success of your OneDrive strategy.

A New Webinar Series Led by Microsoft MVPs

Metalogix has partnered with industry experts from around the world to bring you a new webinar series that covers user adoption, infrastructure management, information architecture, and governance on OneDrive. Our "OneDrive Perspectives" series is designed to share their experiences and present valuable insights from their respective disciplines.  And, running in at just 20 minutes for each webinar, what have you got to lose?

Invest a total of 80 minutes with us over the next four weeks and join us as we dive into understanding OneDrive and discuss how to align your organization’s needs with industry best practices. Trust us, you won't regret spending these minutes away from Facebook and Instagram.

Our OneDrive Perspectives series will tackle the following topics:
