Resource: Office 365 ProPlus Deployment Guide from Microsoft

If you are planning a move to a cloud based service like Office 365 or you have already made that decision and just want to learn more about managing the service then the Office 365 ProPlus Deployment Guide from Microsoft is a terrific resource that will connect you with all of that information in one place.

It is never an easy or straight forward decision about making a move to cloud based services from on-premises equipment. The other day I mentioned one tool from Microsoft, the Azure TCO Tool, that helps you layout the budget impact of any level of move to Azure cloud based services.

The other aspect of a decision about using cloud services - do they meet the needs of your company and users? This is where a planning, deployment, and management guide like this one can help you understand the services capabilities.
