On-Prem? Online? Hybrid? Yes! In recent months, the tenor and the quality of the conversation has changed, as enterprises world-wide have begun to move from paranoia to production with cloud services; and as Microsoft has modified its messaging, tools, and guidance in response to customer needs and concerns regarding the cloud. There's little room for debate that the benefits of the cloud are driving businesses of every size, geography, and region, to consider which workloads belong in the cloud, which do not, and how to manage the complexities of a hybrid environment. There's no better way to address the many nuances of this critical strategic question than to discuss it with some of the best minds in the business. Office 365 MVP Dan Holme facilitates a panel of experts to answer the big questions, and to provide experienced, real-world perspective. You'll be able to submit your questions, as well, prior to the event! Don't miss what is certain to be a lively and spirited debate!

Session: OFF 104 - Mail Enhancements for Office 365
SharePoint-based services on-premises and Office 365 provide a strong repository for content centralization and a single version of the truth. All too often, the speed and ubiquity of Exchange-centric messaging make it too easy to create and send multiple copies of documents to your team, which go immediately out of date. But Exchange on Office 365 has new integration with SharePoint that you may not have seen. Come to this session and you'll learn to create Site Mailboxes, eDiscovery & Data Loss Prevention, and Yammer email integration.

OFF 203 - Free to Be Me and Me – Multiple Identity Disorder and Hybrid Office 365
Office 365 offers a unified login experience across its cloud-based services – Exchange, SharePoint and Lync. However, few organizations are prepared to move entirely to cloud-only identity as they maintain hybrid workloads with on premises systems. Microsoft has offered several different approaches to synchronize or migrate on premises Active Directory with ADFS, Azure ACS, AD on Azure IaaS and more. And most users also need to coordinate logins with other cloud services to provide, ideally, single sign on with proper security. We'll review best practices in AD migration and synchronization, and how to apply these techniques in your hybrid Office 365 environment.
