Office 365 / SharePoint Online - (Really) High level overview

  1. 1. Office 365 / SharePoint Online<br />Wes Preston<br />TrecStone<br />www.trecstone.com<br />
  2. 2. What is Office 365?<br />SharePoint Online<br />Exchange Online<br />Lync Online<br />Another option for implementing functionality for an organization:<br />On-premise – Traditional servers in your environment<br />Hosted – Servers hosted and managed off-site<br />‘In the cloud’ <- Office 365<br />
  3. 3. SharePoint Online<br />The Current Platform – BPOS<br />Based on the 2007 platform<br />Feature parity similar to WSS 3.0<br />Pretty weak…<br />The NEW Platform – Office 365<br />Based on the 2010 platform<br />‘Small Business’ similar to Foundation 2010<br />‘Enterprise’ similar to Server 2010<br />
  4. 4. General Features<br />SharePoint sites, webs, lists and general functionality<br />Same security functionality<br />NO BCS at release, but on the roadmap<br />*Simple* public-facing site – Not SharePoint<br />
  5. 5. SharePoint Online<br />
  6. 6. Small Business Plan<br />Up to 25 users<br />Single site collection<br />Great and inexpensive option for small companies that need a web presence with quality email/calendaring options and flexibility for growth<br />I’m going to have a case study blog post or short series for a small business very soon<br />
  7. 7. Small Business Plan<br />A great option for someone that wants to learn the basics of SharePoint. Most functionality is very similar or exactly the same as what a user would see on a team site in their organization. <br />Use it for self training or tinkering<br />Use it for a family site  <br />
  8. 8. Enterprise Plan<br />Another option for small to medium or large organizations<br />Multiple site collections<br />My Sites<br />*Some* Enterprise features<br />Some plans include Office 2010 Professional Plus<br />
  9. 9. Public-Facing Site<br />Intended to be a simple public-facing solution, not a public-facing SharePoint site<br />It’s *kind of* SharePoint-ish…<br />Pages are stored in a document library, but it’s not the same as a SharePoint page<br />OOB themes, layouts, colors, etc…<br />May or may not be able to edit with SharePoint Designer<br />
  10. 10. Launch – Next Week!<br />June 28th<br />Customer and Partner Appreciation Events at Microsoft Stores in:<br />New York<br />http://msft.it/NYC<br />Bloomington, MN (Minneapolis) - <br />http://msft.it/MSAmerica<br />Costa Mesa, CA<br />http://msft.it/MSCosta<br />Bellevue Square, WA<br />http://msft.it/BelSq<br />Twitter: @Office365<br />
