With the recent launch of Microsoft Teams, you now have more apps than ever to improve team collaboration. So, which one do you choose?

The great thing about Office 365 is all of the apps that are available to be productive. The bad thing about Office 365 is that just as you get using one, a new app arrives. On top of these choices, you also have other collaboration apps like Slack.

Microsoft verfügt seit 2013 - seit es Office 365 gibt - über ein sogenanntes "FastTrack"-Team. Das Team hat sich von der reinen Unterstützung bei der Bereitstellung von Office 365 zum praktischen Einsatzassistenten entwickelt, ausgerichtet, was die Kundezufriedenheit um 64 % gesteigert und die für den Umzug auf Office 365 benötigte Zeit um 33 % gesenkt hat. Die Dienste des Teams beinhalteten i. d. R. den Einsatz von Exchange, OneDrive for Business und Skype. Seit September 2016 verfügt FastTrack außerdem über einen begrenztes Angebot, SharePoint 2013 für Office 365 bereitzustellen.

If you didn't know, Microsoft has had a FastTrack team since 2013 when Office 365 came into existence. This team has grown from being dedicated to deployment guidance and readiness, to hands-on remote deployment assistance in 2014, increasing customer satisfaction by 64% and reducing the onboarding time into Office 365 by 33%. The services typically covered the Exchange, OneDrive for Business and Skype deployment migrations, but as of September 2016 FastTrack has a limited time offer to provide SharePoint 2013 to Office 365.

Just a few years ago, Satya Nadella was given the role of CEO and announced his Mobile First, Cloud First initiative for Microsoft. For Microsoft watchers, it was a big statement from a new CEO of a massive software company. Some may have scoffed a little at the statement.

One of the first limitations that SharePoint administrators encounter is that of content database size. Content databases can start at a reasonable size, but over time get larger and more bloated as new content is added – impacting performance and responsiveness.

In preparation for the Collab365 Summer Games I sat down with four SharePoint MVPs who have been 'SharePointing' for over a decade. We took a trip down memory lane, looking back to our very first moments, and discussed few areas we discovered through trial and error. While a lot has changed and improved in SharePoint, we imagined a scenario where we could talk to our starting SharePoint or Office 365 self to share these secrets for all those who continually work with these technologies or are just getting started.

With Microsoft’s generous offers of making Office 365 more available to students, many IT administrators expect easier management responsibilities with user licenses and their data. Yet after implementing Office 365 within an educational environment, IT pros need to rethink the way they manage student or faculty data. This is especially important if you’re migrating data and documents from a non-Microsoft system to OneDrive for Business.
