Plus16 Webinar What SharePoint strategy is right for me?

By Cathy Dew on April 21, 2016

With the release of SharePoint 2016 to manufacturing, there is no better time to start figuring out what SharePoint strategy is right for your organization. SharePoint is an established leader in Intranet platforms:

  • 80% of Fortune 500 companies are using SharePoint

  • For the past 5 years Microsoft has added roughly 20,000 new SharePoint users every day, totaling 100M users worldwide

  • 2 out of every 3 Enterprise workers have access to SharePoint

Are you already using SharePoint on premise (2007, 2010 or 2013) and looking to upgrade to 2016? Or are you looking at migrating your company to Microsoft’s cloud services: Office365 and SharePoint Online? And now with the new SharePoint Online 2016 features, a hybrid approach across on premise and cloud services is a viable option. Which strategy is right for you? Well, the answer to that is it depends – on your current implementation, your budget, your resources, your culture and your goals.

Join us for a live webinar on Tuesday May 3rd at 10:00 am PST when 2Plus2’s CTO Anthony Baratta walks through some of the critical criteria to help you determine the best approach for your organization.

As part of helping you figure this out, we’ll also cover a few of the more key new features in SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint Online, including OneDrive Redirection, Hybrid Cloud Search, App Launcher, and MinRoles. We’ll help you start important discussions within your organization:

  • where you are in the SharePoint lifecycle?

  • are your costs aligned with the IT purchase cycle?

  • how to balance your organization’s comfort level on the cloud

  • how to integrate an on premise MS Office Suite or Office365 Suite strategy

  • how to factor in availability and allocation of limited IT resources

For the techies in the group, we’ll discuss issues related to data back-up and data ownership. We will also discuss the impact of existing SharePoint customizations using Farm Solutions (Custom Farm Solutions are not supported with SharePoint Online  and the Add-On Programming Module for extending and customizing SharePoint Online).

SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint Online have made significant leaps in terms of mobile (yay for all you smart phone surfers) and are becoming a powerful and practical platform for Office applications. There has never been a better time to invest in SharePoint. Let us help you figure out how to make smart decisions and get your upgrade (or new purchase) strategy in place.
