Office 365

We’ve just finished watching Jeff Teper and co. take us through a phenomenal tour of the new features coming to Office 365—specifically SharePoint. Last year, Jeff Teper, Corporate Vice President of Office, OneDrive, & SharePoint, walked the Microsoft world through the new SharePoint experience and reignited the excitement behind SharePoint.

This year (which now seems to be a general trend for the Office business group), they did it again at the SharePoint Virtual Summit event, streamed live across the web and Twitterraties to an unprecedented number of people.

So your organization has decided to migrate to Office 365 and you’ve been tasked with not only moving content, but with making the most of your organization’s investment. Moving across collaboration platforms is nothing new, but an Office 365 migration brings additional pressures and challenges that do differ from conventional migration activities.

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.

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.

Richard Harbridge, CTO of 2toLead and Microsoft MVP, discusses the benefits of SharePoint 2016 and its effects on adoption for both IT and the business user.
