Type of content: WHITE PAPER
Microsoft first introduced a cloud offering focused on business customers with the Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) in 2009, which consisted of Exchange 2007, SharePoint 2007, Office Communicator 2007 and Live Meeting 2007. In June 2011, Microsoft released the next iteration of its cloud offering for customers: Microsoft Office 365. Office 365 has upgraded these products to Exchange 2010, SharePoint 2010, Office Web Apps, and Lync 2010. Microsoft also announced plans to add Windows Intune and CRM Online. This is a compelling set of cloud-based applications, compared with industry competitors such as Google.
This white paper discusses technical strategies for leveraging this new service within your organization. The goal of this white paper is to clarify strategies for incorporating Office 365 in your enterprise IT portfolio and address the technical considerations for migrating to Office 365. When considering an activation of SharePoint Online as part of your SharePoint strategy, the main architectural decisions which need to be made should focus on the following areas:
- Creation of a cohesive end user experience
- Information Architecture
- On-boarding and Off-boarding of data
- System Requirements
- Architectural Approaches
