SPTechCon is back in Austin, in a new location Downtown, and Jill Hannemann and I are excited to participate for the 4th time. While the location is a change, it runs parallel to the evolution of SharePoint and Office 365 – the more things change, the more they stay the same. Our participation this year covers some of the essentials of the Modern experience within SharePoint.
The first part of our participation is a half-day tutorial on content migration into Office 365. The basic principles over the last 4 years are the same, however now content sources have severely broadened from SharePoint to network drives, personal drives and other document management systems. Organizations are truly looking to take advantage of their investment and move once into Office 365.
Here is more info on the session, 4 keys to Avoid the Slippery Slope of Content Migration.
Speaking of personal drives, I’ll be speaking about how to roll out OneDrive successfully . The title of this session has been the same for several years, but the content has drastically changed. The introduction of Microsoft 365 as a true connection between Windows 10 operating system and Office 365 productivity tools has made OneDrive synchronization of personal and team files an integral part of an organizations adoption and security strategy.
While we’re talking about adoption, I’ll be sharing my opinion of and experience with the Modern interface within Office 365. With Office 365 Turning 6 years old, is it really mature? Holding back no punches we’ll talk about how Modern has developed, where it stands today, and what the true benefits are for your employees during every day work.
In broader adoption context we’ll also be talking about on-premises SharePoint 2019 server. Yup, that’s right, 6 years later and the on-premises server is still in existence. But like its 2016 predecessor it’s ‘born from the cloud’ and even includes some of the major Modern interfaces that I explore in my previous session. So, while the move to the cloud is in full swing, there are still some organizations that desire the control and capabilities that on-premises provide. Jill and I will explore how to make those decisions and point out key features that may help your decision.
In 2019, the Modern State of SharePoint isn’t drastically different than it has been in the past. However, the differences in user interface, connectivity within Microsoft 365, and on-premises functionality may change an adoption strategy that you’ve been developing for a year.
