The new world has arrived, and Microsoft has made bold moves with the upcoming releases of SharePoint 2013, Office 365, and the rest of the “Wave 15” products. Although Microsoft has committed to a “Service First” future, many enterprises see the real world quite differently. What does it all mean, and how and when should you begin to adapt to this brave new world? SharePoint MVP and analyst Dan Holme has spent the last years visiting hundreds of organizations, large and small, in every vertical, and in every corner of the globe. In this raw and uncensored discussion, Dan lays out his analysis of what’s been learned “in the real world” about the existing and new versions of SharePoint and how they will impact your enterprise, your projects, and your future. Take a comprehensive look at the significant updates to SharePoint and their impact on your business—from governance to infrastructure to end users. Chart a vision for the role and the roll-out of SharePoint 2013 and Office 365, and identify the factors that will drive funding for and adoption of SharePoint 2013 in your organization. Most importantly, establish management practices now that will facilitate your upgrade to or coexistence with SharePoint 2013.
