If you’re confused by Office 365, you’re not alone. Many organizations are now exploring it and have questions about features, infrastructure (such as how secure it is or service levels), and architecting hybrid solutions. Today I just want to outline some of the great materials we’ve got for you in Gartner for Technical Professionals.
A good place to start is the webinar Guy Creese just did called “The Hidden Gotchas of Office 365.” The replay link is here.
