  13. 13. Redmond The Outcome Cloud enables on-demand computing resources to be rapidly provisioned with minimal management effort. Redmond#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  14. 14. Redmond What to watch out for… While cloud is for everyone, it is not for everything (until solutions, usage and standards mature). Redmond#o365redmond @RHarbridge

  21. 21. #o365redmond @RHarbridge
  22. 22. Getting Office 365 (or BPOS) Dedicated Evaluation Criteria • Do you have less than 5000 people? Not for you. #o365redmond @RHarbridge
  23. 23. But You Still Want Dedicated? • SPLA (Server Provider License Agreement) – Means hosting companies can offer competitive ‘dedicated’ hosting scenarios at lower costs. This is for you. #o365redmond @RHarbridge

  25. 25. #o365redmond @RHarbridge
  26. 26. What does moving to Office365 mean? • Single Architecture • Initial deploy is still required to migrate data to Office 365 • AD clean up and network upgrade is often required • Balance between continuous innovations and minimize change • Customer controls IT policies but not feature availability • Understand your internal security and privacy requirements#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  27. 27. Office 365 Feature Parity Now Available with some caveats… • No external data search • No rich client integration • No profile pages • No direct connectivity to SQL Azure without a WCF endpoint.#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  28. 28. More Stuff Missing? • Project Server • Power Pivot • Secure Store Service • Full Trust Solutions • Not all Sandbox Solutions work? * * Maurice Prather -#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  29. 29. The Pathway to the Cloud On-Premises Coexistence Cloud Service Single sign-on experience online and on premises With identity federation and directory synchronization Hybrids • Trusted (ADFS) • Untrusted (Two Identities) Complete control and ownership of Migrate some capabilities to SharePoint Online Microsoft will regularly deliver new features hardware, maintenance, resources, and access both on premises and online sites and capabilities to SharePoint Online and administration with the same domain credentials#o365redmond @RHarbridge

  32. 32. Licensing Matters#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  33. 33. Licensing SummaryName Price (Per User/Month) DetailsP – Professional $6.00 Exchange, Lync, SharePoint, Office Weband Small Biz AppsE1 – Enterprise $10.00 P = Limited toLync, SharePoint 50 users. Exchange, less thanE2 – Enterprise $16.00 E1 + Office Web AppsE3 – Enterprise $24.00 E2 + Office Pro Plus, BCS, Excel Services, InfoPath Services, Visio Services, & Access ServicesE4 – Enterprise $27.00 E3 + Voice Capabilities (VOIP Stuff)K1 – Kiosk Worker $4.00 Exchange, SharePoint, Office Web Apps (View Only)K2 – Kiosk Worker $10.00 Exchange, SharePoint, Office Web Apps E/K - You can split your users (for cost savings).#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  34. 34. Choosing Enterprise#o365redmond @RHarbridge Only Enterprise has SSL (Both have it on sign in process.)
  35. 35. Quick Example 100 Users… Business Wants… • SharePoint 2010 Enterprise E3 - $24 per user per month… • Lync 2010 • Exchange 2010 $28800.00 per year… • Office 2010 ProfessionalOffice 365 E3 Over 3 Years On Premises On Prem Costs:Year 1 $28,800.00 Year 1 $92,708.00 • $3,500.00 in Services (Installation/Config)Year 2 $28,800.00 Year 2 $0.00 • $10,000.00 - Two ServersYear 3 $28,800.00 Year 3 $0.00 • $79,208.00 – LicensingTotal $86,400.00 Total $92,708.00 Quick Total: $92,708.00At +4 years = more expensive. Big investment?Consistent cost? More features/flexibility.#o365redmond @RHarbridge *This is meant as only a simplified example scenario
  36. 36. What About SharePoint Standalone? Office 365 offers two Standalone plans for SharePoint. $5.25 $10.25SP Online P1 Over 3 Years SP Standard On Premises On Prem Costs:Year 1 $6,300.00 Year 1 $28,576.00 • $2,000.00 in Services • $10,000.00 - Two ServersYear 2 $6,300.00 Year 2 $0.00 • $7,276.00 – LicensingYear 3 $6,300.00 Year 3 $0.00 Total $18,900.00#o365redmond @RHarbridge Total $28,576.00 100 Users… *This is meant as only a simplified example scenario
  37. 37. External Users Subscription LicensesSharePoint Online Partner Access(Please note: This service is only $2.00 User/Monthavailable in packs of 50 licenses.): Another reason extranets are sometimes cheaper in Office 365 vs On PremiseSP Online Over 3 Years SP On Premises On Prem Costs:Year 1 $2,400.00 Year 1 $10,500.00 • 100 External Users… • 1 WS Ext Conn at $1000.00Year 2 $2,400.00 Year 2 $0.00 • 100 CALs at $95.00Year 3 $2,400.00 Year 3 $0.00 ORTotal $7,200.00 Total $10,500.00 • 1 FIS License at $11,793.00#o365redmond @RHarbridge *This is meant as only a simplified example scenario
  38. 38. Understand Additional Costs Once you use this up…#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  39. 39. Redmond The Outcome We barely scratched the surface with SharePoint in the Cloud but have already seen many ‘trade off’ decision points we should be aware of. Redmond#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  40. 40. Redmond What to watch out for… Without careful planning cloud providers can cause considerable cost due to new challenges such as migration and identity federation. Redmond#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  41. 41. Redmond Concerns In The Cloud Redmond#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  42. 42. BPOS to Office 365? Microsoft is responsible for any changes that happen in its 1. Customers will not have to migratedata; data. datacenters. Customers will not have to migrate any any however, customers will be responsible for making sure that 2. client software is have SharePoint 2010 their You need to compliant with the system requirements. See Office 365 system requirements compatible client software/systems. 4C4C-A21B-48BCCF8887A9/FAQ_EN_101010.docx. 3. You have to train users on the new 2010 interface. Customers will also be responsible for end-user training and configuring any new features and capabilities that will be delivered by Office 365.#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  43. 43. Identity Options in the Cloud#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  44. 44. Cost Modeling#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  45. 45. SecurityCan be an issue, but most of the time is not.The real issue is lack of standards and accountability…If it’s a bigger and more respectable hosting providerexpect a better level of accountability and securityplanning/activity.#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  46. 46. Security Program “We ended up with around 800 preventive, detective and corrective controls that were physical, administrative and technical. Then we took the defense-in-depth approach and put the controls throughout the stack.”#o365redmond @RHarbridge - John Howie, Microsoft
  47. 47. Privacy Program#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  48. 48. What is more reliable?#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  49. 49. #o365redmond @RHarbridge
  50. 50. What is the Offline Story?#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  51. 51. Service Level Agreements#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  52. 52. Support Is ImportantAs an example Microsoft provides 24/7 support.Google also provides 24/7 support.However Google Apps has a rule where only system critical eventsthat affect more than 50% of users can use their phone support.Don’t forget that with all cloud based providers – you are also addinganother layer between IT and the business users. Example Issue: Can a you put a stop to a providers maintenance schedule so that a business team can finish a critical deliverable without interruption?#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  53. 53. Termination/Suspension of Service#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  54. 54. Other Issues? • Since the startup costs are lower organizations can run the risk of not doing enough planning. • Migrating content can be extremely difficult depending on what options are provided by the ‘cloud provider’.#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  55. 55. On Integration#o365redmond @RHarbridge
  56. 56. LAN vs WAN#o365redmond @RHarbridge
