In this session, Dan will review the basics of OneDrive for business.

Security, accessibility and availability are three keys to ensuring information workers success when they go mobile. In the 2013 release of SharePoint, SkyDrive Pro was bestowed upon end users, providing information workers with a new tool to better synchronize data before they hit the road. With Service Pack 1 being released, the name was changed to protect the innocent, to OneDrive for Business. Microsoft continues to press forward, providing innovative solutions to meeting the core needs of information workers.

You will learn:
  • The basics of OneDrive for Business
  • How it stacks up when hosted on-premise vice in the cloud as well as how it stacks up against other service providers
  • Some of the benefits of using it as an integrated collaboration suite for small organizations that may not need all of the capabilities of SharePoint
