The Metalogix SharePoint and Office 365 Roadshow kicked-off last week with a trip to Microsoft Netherlands. Going into the second year of the annual Metalogix Roadshow the decision to start in Amsterdam wasn’t because it was the first alphabetically… no no no. It was because the community in Amsterdam is really alive and organisations in the region are considered early cloud adopters. We proved that assumption when we surveyed the crowd and over 90% of the attendees were either “All in” or adopting a hybrid deployment.

As a result, the focal points of the day were on the new features of SharePoint 2016, how easily the platform integrates with Office 365 and opening up the possibilities for easy management of hybrid scenarios. Discussion topics included, “Creating a hybrid deployment,” “Managing permissions policies and productivity,' 'Best practices for migration' and, of course, there was plenty of information on the features of Office 365 and SharePoint 2016 presented by MVP Albert-Jan Schott and Microsoft Product Manager for Office 365 Hans Van Der Meer. They also took attendees through the future roadmap for Office 365.

That wasn’t all that attendees got. During our raffle, we gave away a ticket to Unity Connect in Harlem later this year, courtesy of ITUnity, won by Ruud Korbee. Additionally, Pinaki Ghatak won a brand new Surface Pro 4. Congrats to both winners.

If you’d like to attend one of our future events, we will be running roadshows throughout April, May and June in North America, Europe and Asia. So take a look at The Metalogix SharePoint 2016 & Office 365 Roadshow page to see if a roadshow is coming to your town. If so, register and learn how you too can adopt Office 365 early like the Dutch or build out a successful hybrid deployment.

Until next time,
