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.

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.
