Cloud Content Management

Office 365 can provide rich cloud-based solutions for many business scenarios, but getting all users and services set up involves several administrative rounds before your users are fully ready to go.

You’ll likely need to traverse Office 365 admin center user management, purchasing, and billing settings, the Exchange admin center, the SharePoint admin center profile and OneDrive settings, and more.

With the Netherlands being amongst the top countries in EMEA who have gone 'all in' with the Microsoft Office 365 cloud offering, we couldn’t have picked a better location to kick off the Metalogix Roadshow.

Mike Kan, our new head of Channels and Alliances, kicked off the Roadshow with a theme that captured the day’s goals, 'The key to successful collaboration is adoption and incremental revenue streams can be delivered when the party with technology triangulates with those who have access to market and a new business model.'

Microsoft's Office has been a staple of business and organizations since it was first created. From a historical context, Office's popularity can be traced back to its ties to Microsoft Windows.

Windows is still the world’s most used business OS and Office is still tied to it. But as businesses embrace content collaboration workflows that don't require a desktop or laptop to perform office-like tasks, Microsoft needed to change its strategy or watch as businesses considered removing Office from its daily practices.

Happy New Year to you. While 2014 was a great year for Metalogix, we recognize that our successes are nothing without our clients and partners who not only challenged us to do better but inspired us to innovate to meet their needs.

We view 2014 as a transformative year for content collaboration. SharePoint’s value increased as companies have been asked to ensure higher availability, Office 365 matured as businesses started to truly understand its benefits and the power of OneDrive/OneDrive for Business grew quickly due to increasing use and nearly unlimited storage in the cloud.

It goes without saying that moving to the Cloud is a challenging prospect for most organisations. It is never as simple as recognizing the potential value of a cloud service and then just switching it on. While there are a great number of benefits of operating in the Cloud, the approach to implementation of such technology is essential to its success.

That’s why many organizations turn to a hybrid cloud setup to start their journey. This could be for any number of underlying reasons such as:

We’re back for another round of war stories, strategy, and guidance with SharePoint Migrations! At the upcoming SPTechCon Boston conference (, Jill Hannemann, Director of Advisory Services for, and I will be presenting a half-day tutorial on the ins and outs of SharePoint migrations.

It’s hard to believe that just 18 months ago some content management vendors were using phrases like, “as much cloud as you need” when they talked about hybrid, as if the only real advantage of storing and sharing files in the heavens  was so that they could easily accessed from anywhere, at any time, via any device, without a hassle. The idea was to keep most of your content on premise where it already lives, where it’s presumably safe, and where IT is in full control.

This morning, the Uncle of SharePoint, Seth Patton, announced that SharePoint Server 2016 Release to Market (RTM) was available for download. The “Father of SharePoint” Jeff Teper admits that SharePoint is filled with geeks by releasing on-purpose on Pi Day (3/14) and setting the big reveal virtual event on May 4th for all those Star Wars fans out there.

Boot Camp Week 4: Using Backups to Restore Targeted Content When SharePoint is Down!

Welcome back to Boot Camp!

This week, we get more technical and goal oriented. Two key performance metrics, Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO), are the two main technical metrics that people use to indicate acceptable business-related performance targets for backup and recovery. In this post, we tackle in detail the first metric, RPO.
