  37. 37. Bad news  Google Drive, Box, DropBox, and others are ahead of Microsoft.  [New] OneDrive for Business compatibility issues with a standalone Office 2013 or Office 2016 application (like Visio, Project, Skype for Business, or OneDrive for Business). Huh?
  38. 38. In Review  OneDrive for Business is a first and best cloud workload.  Architect and plan for OneDrive for Business integration and migration as a first step towards a cloud strategy for or customers  OD4B will be the Enterprise tool for informal collaboration that best integrates with Office and the Microsoft ecosystem.  OD4B is the best tool for hybrid scenarios where we leverage on-prem (SP2013/2016) and online (Office365).  OD4B just released in Sept 30, 2015 with many fixes and features that continue to make it an excellent tool.  OneDrive for Business (OD4B) is maturing as a tool but its behind the major players.  If you want something fixed or new features in OD4B, send to:  SharePoint Server:  Office365:  Learn to use OD4B, and you’ll love it too.
