We just launched the new Office 365 Education suite last week so you might be asking where can I learn about the new offering from an Office 365 Administrator/IT perspective or where can I find new tools to help me onboard?  We have just added some new readiness tools and training content which I have listed below:

 

New Office 365 service descriptions

 

We have just updated all the new Office 365 service descriptions which are excellent source of information for describing in great detail all of the capabilities of Office 365 Pro Plus, Lync, SharePoint, and Exchange Online services within the new Office 365 offering:

New Office 365 ONRAMP tool

This is a new useful tool which walks you through a questionnaire to ensure you are familiar with all the settings, limits, etc. with Office 365 to identify possible areas to resolve prior to going to production:

It also has a new Office 365 Readiness Assessment tool to check your Active Directory, infrastructure, etc. This replaces the old readiness tool (DRT) which has been retired. This new readiness tool is available after you run through the questionnaire.

  • I'm a little disappointed. I hopped into the ADFS Ignite labs, and they are the old ones from wave 14. Do you know when they are going to be updated with current information?

  • Kelly,

    There is no change in the process from wave14 to wave15 with Dirsync and ADFS so they kept the content the same.

  • Thank you for the response markga. I'd heard that DirSync and ADFS were going to be changed in wave 15. I take it that this is not the case? Do you know if there are plans to update the identity process?

  • hy thanks very much for that
