Business / Government / Non-profit / Community? SharePoint 2010 / 2013? On premises / cloud? My Sites?
Twenty years ago social used to mean: Impromptu and informal discussions Getting to know your coworkers interests Office parties and lunches Organized team-building events Having fun together
Today people would say that social in the enterprise is: Community People Blog Reputation Networking Ideas Updates Involved Monitoring Sharing Knowledge Collaboration
Geographic separation – Multiple offices / Multiple time zones Cultural / language differences On-the-road / In-the-field Teleworking
And many more But how do the features and capabilities integrate with the enterprise?

Why is Microsoft so focused on cloud – Yammer and Office 365? Innovate quickly Take advantage of viral user adoption Natural network effect that makes social so powerful

Microsoft’s Enterprise Social Roadmap
Investment in social will focus on Yammer and
Committed to another on-premises release of
SharePoint Server [probably in 2015]
Will maintain its social capabilities
Not planning on adding new social features
Are you ready and able to go cloud?
SharePoint On-Premises Lifecycle
Support SharePoint on-premises a minimum of
Mainstream support for at least 5 years
Extended support for at least 5 years
Until at least end of 2022 (SP2013) and 2025
Is that long enough for your needs?
Can you even predict your needs 5 years out?
Government of Canada Cloud-First Strategy
Minister of Treasury Board of Canada says that
government departments / public organizations:
“will be directed to consider cloud options during
the IT procurement process”
“must have considered and evaluated potential
cloud solutions before they consider any other
Does this influence your strategy?
