For those of you who want more detail than a 1/2 day TS2 Office 365 event, there are the Office 365 Ignite events. I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time blocking time out of my schedule to prepare for new technology – going to a live event not only gives me a better education experience, but it forces me to disconnect from my daily world and focus on the training at hand. Six months ago, I was unsure of the value of the Cloud for businesses today, but after seeing what Office 365 brings to the table, I would want to make sure my technical and technical sales staff were up-to-date on Microsoft’s Cloud offerings; this is one of those opportunities. BTW, if you can’t make one of the live locations, the content is available online at Office 365 Jump Start Training.
