SharePoint is at the Crossroads – Which Way Will You Go?



SharePoint in the cloud or on premises? Or both? Come to SPTechCon Boston 2014 and learn about the differences between Office 365, cloud-hosted SharePoint, on-premises SharePoint, and hybrid solutions and build your company’s SharePoint Roadmap!
 
 For developers,



 the future means a new app model  and new app paradigms. For IT pros and SharePoint admins, it’s trying to retain control over an installation that’s now in the cloud. For  information workers and their managers, it’s about learning how to  work ‘social.’  But it’s not for everyone.

Where do you need to be?
 
The answer is simple: SPTechCon Boston. With a collection of the top SharePoint MVPs and expert speakers, more than 80 classes and tutorials to choose from and panels focused on the changes in SharePoint, SPTechCon will teach you how to master the present and plan for the future.

YES!

Office 365 is Microsoft's new home for SharePoint, bringing the collaborative work environment into the cloud. It joins Yammer, Lync and OneDrive for business — along with the more familiar Office applications — to create a seamless work environment for businesses. Microsoft’s primary message is that Office 365 lowers costs for infrastructure and the people who maintain it. You won't have to create server farms for your SharePoint/Office 365 installations, and Microsoft ensures "five nines" uptime. Because the solution is cloud-based, users can access their workspace from any device, at any time of day. Microsoft can deliver updates more quickly, and has said improvements to Office 365 will outpace those delivered in the 2015 SharePoint Server release.

Maybe Not!

For some, though, Office 365 is not the answer. Many companies face regulations that require their data be stored in specific locations, or want to retain control over software updates. Maybe you want to decide when updates should be rolled out, and who should get them. By installing the updates yourself you can make sure that nothing breaks. Or you want to continue to use the customizations you've created for your on-premises implementations that are not compatible with Office 365. And finally, you may not be willing to put your critical business data into the cloud, where its protection for the most part is out of your hands.

With SharePoint Server 2013 hybrid, you can integrate productivity services in SharePoint Online with on-premises SharePoint Server 2013 and possibly get the best of both worlds. For enterprises that want to gradually move their existing on-premises SharePoint Server 2013 services to the cloud, SharePoint Server 2013 hybrid provides a staged migration path by extending high-impact SharePoint Server 2013 workloads to SharePoint Online. The hybrid model enables identity management and trusted communications between SharePoint Online and SharePoint Server 2013 and integrated functionality between services and features such as Search, and Microsoft Business Connectivity Services. But installing and using the hybrid model isn’t easy.
