Implementing and Using Office 365 in the Real World


"The Cloud” is becoming the de facto standard for delivery of information systems. Of all the cloud system providers, Microsoft’s Office 365 is on everyone’s list, and often at the top of the list. Office 365 leverages decades of familiarity with the Office suite of applications, and Microsoft’s ECM system – SharePoint. However, moving to Office 365, is not always as simple as an organisation imagines. Using Office 365 has many advantages but also some disadvantages. This presentation describes the key issues to consider, and pitfalls to be aware of, when implementing and using Office 365.
