Microsoft's massive investment into Cloud technologies are enough to make anyone stop and wonder if the Cloud is something they should be focusing on for SharePoint. During this full day workshop we will examine Microsoft's Cloud Strategy from an ITPro's perspective and understand how a hybrid scenario can be structured to maximize the On Premises, Infrastructure as a Service, & Cloud capabilities. We will deep dive into deployment planning and implementation across the hybrid stack. We will also discuss and demonstrate the management of the SharePoint platform across all tiers. Join us on this journey from the ground to the cloud and back again!
