The Future of Office 365 and Microsoft Cloud Series

This week Cloud and Office 365 has been on my brain.  I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about SharePoint and the cloud.

First I felt like people were really confused and could see how Microsoft’s strategy of telling consumers about the cloud was a bit strange.

SharePoint and the MS Cloud Strategy – Are you confused yet?

Then I really drilled into the Office 365 content and training and I got a glimpse of the future.  The future looked bright for Office 365 and there were a few bumpy parts for IT Admins.  This is where I started publishing some key posts on the new NothingButSharePoint IT Pro site.

Predictions for SharePoint in 2011 – Are You Ready?

Then I stepped back and focused on those ways that IT world changes in this post.

10 Ways Office 365 changes the IT World!

I’m definitely curious how the community reacts to what’s getting shaken up.  It feels a little like it did when people started outsourcing.  I think we need to come up with a term for “To the Cloud!” as they say in the commercials.  How about outservicing, as in I’m going to outservice my SharePoint internet site and some of my collab sites.

I LOVE traveling our little planet. In my quest to visit every country in the world I've got about 35 UN countries left! I'm not just country hopping, but looking for the most immersive cultural experiences and capturing them as photos and videos. Yes, I'm also a geek. I've been recognized as a Microsoft Regional Director, a community leadership award. When not traveling, I'm in paradise in sunny southern California as I'm a Senior IT Manager at Blizzard Entertainment.
