Customers moving to Office 365 need to make key architectural decisions as to how they will securely and effectively move their workloads to the cloud. Picking the “free” or “included” over purpose built identity management tools could be the difference between a successful Office 365 deployment and another IT horror story. Office 365 benefits like cost savings, high availability, increased security, and fulfillment of a cloud and mobile first reality may be delayed, diminished or dissipated with the wrong toolset.

In this session, IT Pro contributor Orin Thomas, in addition to Sibrina Shafique, will take a deep dive into:

  • Common pitfalls when deploying Office 365 – why they are overlooked and how to avoid similar challenges
  • Real world use cases architected around best-of-breed technologies that enabled and accelerated Office 365 deployments
  • Demonstration of IT agility in some of the most complex IT use cases (such as mergers, acquisitions and divestitures)
