Office 365 Transition Potholes

Avoid Obstacles on the Road to Success

by Patrick Renzi | 05.18.16

It’s a question I get asked just about every time I speak to someone regarding Office 365. What questions should I be asking about the transition? What should I look out for? What is going to happen that I am not expecting? Well that’s the thing: not knowing what to expect makes it awfully hard to plan what to do when it happens. But what if you had a Magic 8-Ball? Something that could warn you of what might happen, before it does. Sadly, such a device doesn’t exist. But where there is no magic, there is Connection—armed with the experts to help you find the answers you’re looking for. Let’s start with some things about Office 365 that may not be completely advertised.

Deploying Office 365 Pro Plus?

Don’t Forget Project and Visio

by Lane Shelton | 11.02.15

I’ve been reading on Technet and other blogs about co-existence issues between MSI and Click-to-Run installations of Office 2013 products. Can’t say for sure if this will continue when Office 2016 comes out, but if I had a nickel…I’d say yes. It seems probable due to the way that click-to-run (C2R) technology works. Most organizations have Project and Visio out there, but when you’re moving to Office 365 it’s easy to forget about them. All the focus is on setting up Cloud IDs and dealing with Office. But if you have users that will be on Office C2R, you need to also plan for their Project and Visio too. Here’s why.

Microsoft Office 365

Office 365 is new territory for Microsoft. It’s a transformational move at the center of their productivity stack. Tried and true products like Office, Project, and Visio are being transformed into online solutions. Right now that’s a mix of in-the-cloud and on-premises, what some call “software plus services.” But the reach is extending beyond the center: now there’s CRM online, Visual Studio Online, SQL Power BI, Microsoft Azure, Azure Active Directory—and the list keeps growing. We all know how that’s affecting the licensing—shifting from “I own it” to “I’m pretty much renting it, forever and ever.” That by itself is a tough choice for many customers to make, and requires careful and thorough due diligence. And while I won’t detail this today (really), I want to remind you to talk to us about our Microsoft License Optimization (MLO) process if you’re struggling with it—we can help.
