Real World SharePoint in the Cloud

A session at SharePoint Saturday Austin

Saturday 2nd March, 2013

10:40am to 11:40am (CST)

The Cloud; It’s a hot topic. SharePoint; Another hot topic. Bring the two together and you have a subject bordering on meltdown!

For Microsoft, the Cloud is an “all in” big bet that is the future direction of products like SharePoint, we’re being told to head into the Cloud as it’s the future.

For many organizations, heading to the Cloud is an alarming idea; How? Why? When? How much? What’s the Risk? Are all questions that organizations are looking to answer.

From Office 365 to hosted SharePoint and through to dedicated, self-managed Private Clouds, there is likely to be a Cloud solution to meet every organizational need, but steering through the minefield of choice can be a tricky task.

In this session we will discuss the real world options available to organizations considering using SharePoint in the Cloud and walk through some case studies of Cloud solutions in use and why SharePoint in the Cloud was the right choice for these usage scenarios.

From this session, you can expect to gain a better understanding of options available to you as well as a firmer idea of whether the Cloud will be right for you and your organization at this time.
