What an enterprise buyer needs to understand about Microsoft, SharePoint and Office 365
 
SharePoint is often taken as a given, but there are many areas where it comes up short. Also Microsoft’s focus has strongly turned to Office 365 and that also has many implications to current SharePoint customers. You could even argue that whether on-premise SharePoint has a future at all. In any case right now you should choose very carefully the areas for SharePoint implementations.
 
Presentation takes a critical approach to SharePoint’s future roadmap and evaluates Microsoft’s Office 365 future plans. SharePoint’s strongest areas will be reviewed, but also those areas will be highlighted where SharePoint is lacking compared to competitors. Presentation also discusses the strongest competitors right now – and what competitors Microsoft sees as most relevant right now.
 
Key takeaways:
  • Understand the weaknesses and strengths of SharePoint
  • Understand Microsoft’s business goals for SharePoint and Office 365
  • Get insights to future development of SharePoint and “safe implementation areas”
