Partner Webinar: Reward; Risk or Both? Office 365

Orlando Scott-Cowley from our software partner Mimecast delivered this exclusive webinar on the pros and cons of using Office 365 in your firm.

Partner Webinar: Reward; Risk or Both? Office 365

Office 365 should already be considered critical infrastructure and a matter of national security. The risks to the government grow as more services make the move. There is a very real possibility that problems affecting Office 365 could bring down the daily function of the country as a whole. It is naïve to think that Microsoft can operate their environment flawlessly for all time and that this scenario will never come to pass.  Office 365 is a complex single environment machine – and complex machines break no matter how much effort is applied to keep them up. Service level agreements mean little if an entire country goes substantially offline even for an hour. At the very least, government should be mandating the use of 3rd party backup and continuity services in order to mitigate against the inevitable “bad day”.

By watching this session you will learn:

  • How your peers are thinking about Office 365
  • What factors are driving the adoption of Office 365
  • What the rewards are for adopting it
  • What pitfalls you might find along the way
  • And… the (new) risks a SaaS monoculture presents.
