May 4, 2016 benchmarked the launch of SharePoint Server 2016 - the first Microsoft on premise offering to be reengineered and “born from the cloud.” I spent the day at Microsoft’s Times Square building attending a partner expo hosted by harmon.ie . After listening to the webcasts, I participated in a roundtable panel with other SharePoint experts to discuss what it all meant to SharePoint developers, end users and CIOs.

Are you using SharePoint 2010? Attendees from our Microsoft Office 365 & SharePoint 2016 Roadshow along with unofficial webinars polls found that an overwhelming majority of attendees are using SharePoint 2010. Of course, many of these attendees asked us, “How do I move from SharePoint 2010 to 2016?” While the migration process of skipping a version of SharePoint has always been the same, most of the answers given are either wrong or not completely correct. It’s confusing for many.

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.

For many employees, the pressure to get their job done outweighs any risks they recognize with accessing or sharing sensitive data.

That may be why, according to Risky Business: How Company Insiders Put High Value Information at Risk, a recent survey by the Ponemon Institute, employees are responsible for more data leaks than lost or stolen devices, system glitches, external attackers or malicious insiders.

Welcome to Week 2 of SharePoint Backup and Recovery Boot Camp!

As I said in Week 1, something is going to go wrong. It always does. At Backup and Recovery Boot Camp, we treat recovery as a “When” and not an “If”.

A few years ago, when I first started with Metalogix, there was a growing concern that SharePoint 2013 might be SharePoint’s last big rodeo. With increasing cloud functionality and massive growth in Office 365, I predicted to our CTO that SharePoint would become the infrastructure of Office 365 and lose its brand.

This week, he reminded me of that conversation. He was right, SharePoint wasn’t dead.

This is Part 3 of our migration readiness series. In Part 1: Architecture, we wrote about architecture and making your content as lightweight as possible before making the big move.
