Microsoft Office 365 cloud services are gaining momentum and projected to be the future leader in cloud computing deployments, according to one survey. But getting up there won't be easy. An Office 365 migration to the cloud requires moving content and collaboration applications, which compels organizations to retool processes and prep content for migration. In many cases, Microsoft customers aren't ready for the cloud, or they're forced to keep their data on premises because of compliance requirements, industry regulations or data security issues. But that hasn't stopped Microsoft from introducing new cloud-based enterprise content management and collaboration tools that are viewed by some as a step forward and by others as simply overlapping SharePoint's features.
In this three-part handbook, industry analyst and consultant Peter O'Kelly suggests that migrating to Office 365 cloud services makes sense for companies trying to keep pace with the next phase of cloud-based document sharing and collaboration. But at times, the migration may not be pretty. Nathan Lamb then writes that Microsoft needs to straddle the line by keeping on-premises customers happy while offering viable cloud-based alternatives. And since Microsoft's entry into cloud computing depends on the success of Office 365 and its productivity tools, Lamb and executive editor Lauren Horwitz present the unabashed opinions of leading Microsoft product analysts, who dissect some of Office 365's latest cloud-based product offerings.Continue Reading

Problem Solve Enterprise content management systems Issues
We’ve gathered up expert advice and tips from professionals like you so that the answers you need are always available.
Mobile workers need access to corporate data, and every business must choose a method that meets its users' needs. Questions about security and offline capabilities are at the core of any discussion about providing mobile data access. Offline or not, sensitive data needs protection, and IT must find a way to provide that without locking data down too much.
There's no shortage of enterprise file sync and sharing services available to provide mobile data access, but they're not the only option and they're not right for every organization -- especially those with highly regulated data. Companies can instead turn to mobile content management (MCM), but that has drawbacks of its own. It's usually tied to enterprise mobility management, so it has the integration IT administrators want. But workers may be forced to use non-native applications instead of the tools they like. In-app storage is a good solution for companies with confidential or regulated information, but is an unnecessary undertaking for businesses that can use the cloud or MCM.Continue Reading
