Going to The Cloud(tm) doesn't mean we need to start over. Organizations big and small can leverage Office 365 with their on-premises systems, gaining the agility of a hosted solution that is always up-to-date while adhering to your current policies for compliance and security. If you've ever heard the term "Hybrid SharePoint", but want to understand what it really means and what you can really do with it when it comes to Office 365 and SharePoint Online, this is the session for you. We'll walk through the Hybrid models and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

In this session, we'll discuss the various aspects of why an organization may wish to stay in a hybrid solution with both on-premises and cloud hosted solutions that are integrated with one another.

You will learn:

  • How to integrate your on-premises SharePoint deployments with Office 365 and SharePoint Online for Search, Taxonomy, OneDrive for Business, app launcher extensibility, and more
  • An understanding of how Office 365 identity impacts hybrid deployments and best practices for ensuring consistent access to both on-premises and Office 365 hosted workloads
