Which “cloud” is best for me for my hosted SharePoint solution: Microsoft Office 365 or Microsoft Azure IaaS?

What is “codename OSLO” and how will it change enterprise search?

Join Mario Fulan, along with host Ricardo Wilkins, as they guide us on a tour of two different topics this month
Which “cloud” is best for me for my hosted SharePoint solution: Microsoft Office 365 or Microsoft Azure IaaS?
We’ll discuss the differences and similarities between SharePoint Online in Microsoft Office 365 and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) in Microsoft Azure for hosting my SharePoint sites “in the cloud”.  How do I choose the best solution for my business and what are the key factors to consider when making a decision?
What is “codename OSLO” and how will it change enterprise search?
The enterprise search experience is fantastic in SharePoint but is about to go through a major reformation.  Codename OSLO was announced at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference SPC2014 and promises to personalize search and discovery of content to make them more relevant and personal for everyone.  On July 9th, Microsoft announced Delve as the official name for codename OSLO.  We will do an introduction to Delve and discuss the capabilities that it will bring to users to surface information in new ways and to bring information to the user rather than wait for users to seek information through the standard textual search interface.  Delve enables exciting new ways to discover information and to work together and is the first of a new breed of intelligent work experiences.

 Community Time for Power Users



Starting this month and going forward, there will be a dedicated time for anyone attending the meeting to ask/answer questions related to any SharePoint feature. 


We, at the steering committe feel that there is enough knowledge among all of the attendees that we can help each other by sharing the knowledge.
Our goal is that this time will be use to introduce SharePoint features (tips/tricks), ask questions, answer questions, showcase a technique, etc. by the attendees.


Give us your opinion about this time slot. Or if you would like to be a part of this time, drop us an email at


No vendor topics.
