Combine Office 365 components to make it work for you

Aug 19, 2015 9:30:00 AM

Office 365 brings a continually increasing toolset of productivity tools that, although they are supposed to work together, often have to be combined using unique strategies to truly make Office 365 shine within an organization. For Office 365 to be a success, Office 365 must be a productivity tool that can be used to add value to existing business requirements and processes while ideally not changing the way end users work. Some disruption is inevitable, but realistically an organization can only change so much with any given tool. With so many possibilities and limited time, I find it helps to investigate how Microsoft utilizes Office 365 internally to see what I can glean.

Around the corner: SharePoint 2016

Aug 12, 2015 11:42:42 AM

When SharePoint 2016 becomes available to the public in Q1 2016, there will be five versions in use by organizations around the world. That’s a lot of collaboration! When I think about all the questions I have been asked about SharePoint over the years, I realize that many of them are the same. They’re primarily about how to USE a functional piece of the system, how to create a workflow, or how to maximize a specific efficiency within an organization. Seldom am I asked a generic question, such as how or when to upgrade from one version to the next.
