Friday, May 25th | Keeping up with the Joneses: Managing Change in Office 365
4-5pm | Lawrence Memorial Hospital | Conference Room A

    In Office 365, administrators have lost most, if not all, of the control of updates and upgrades, but are still held responsible for the impact. With Microsoft rolling out new features to Office 365 and Azure every week, the game has changed.

    This session will cover not only how to adapt to these rapid changes in the Microsoft cloud, but also how to make them work to the organization’s advantage. The way Microsoft manages and communicates change will be a topic, and how to properly interact with and provide feedback to Microsoft. Expect detailed examples of past cloud changes, and how other organizations successfully or unsuccessfully adapted. There will be something for everyone at his session, admins or end users of any skill level.
