Office 365’s tipping points

Jan 21, 2015 10:47:59 AM

In his book “The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference,” Malcolm Gladwell defines a tipping point as "the moment of critical mass, the threshold, the boiling point.” We are always approaching tipping points or looking at them in the rear-view mirror with technology. The art of it is to see the tipping points coming before everyone else and react mindfully so that your organization can succeed.

Five years ago, if I had told you that many enterprise-class organizations would move their e-mail into the thing we now call “the cloud,” what would your reaction have been? I know for a fact that it would have been something between laughing openly and telling me that it would never happen for a long list of reasons, possibly including data sovereignty, intellectual capital protection, organizational culture, etc. I know this would have been the case because I had a lot of conversations with my clients and others back then that went that way.

Metalogix releases the only data guard integrated SharePoint tool to securely synchronize content between domains at different security levels

Jan 20, 2015 10:20:49 AM

Metalogix, provider of the industry’s most recognized and trusted management tools for mission-critical collaboration platforms, including SharePoint, Exchange and Office 365, announced today the release of Replicator Cross Domain Edition for the secure, automated transfer of live SharePoint content between government agency networks at high and low security levels.

Replicator Cross Domain Edition, developed with the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), is the only data guard integrated tool capable of automatic, bi-directional transfer of live content between SharePoint farms on separate networks at different security levels. For example, the tool synchronizes content between secret (SIPRNet) and sensitive but unclassified (NIPRNet) domains. Replicator Cross Domain Edition works with the data guard to eliminate the need for using removable media to transfer SharePoint content between networks at government agencies.

Strategies for SharePoint

Jan 14, 2015 10:12:25 AM

In the past I have written many articles about the strategy side of SharePoint; I am a huge proponent of ensuring that organizations set a strategy that aligns to a road map that can be supported by your organization. While I evangelize and speak to that fact, I also understand that this is largely seen as the yellow brick road to something unrealistic or intangible for many organizations. In a conference session, the people thinking the latter are those that look at me with a simple smile or a shake of their head, wondering if their organizations can ever agree to a direction or path, or a paradigm change from one version to the next.
