Buzzkill & This Week in Teams cohost Jay Leask joined the SPFest team as they brought the #365EduCon brand to Washington DC. Headlined by Microsoft’s Teams & Adoption SME Karuana Gatium, 365 EduCon DC was two years in the making as SPFest DC was delayed twice due to the pandemic. Much of the content was geared toward a US Federal Government who, prior to COVID, was very hesitant to take to someone else’s computer (i.e., the Cloud). Many of these federal agencies quickly found themselves jumping into Microsoft’s SaaS collaboration platform, so while two years ago we assumed this conference would be heavily focused on on-premises content, we found a great deal of interest in the cloud and much less on older platforms.
This Week in Teams, Craig and Jay jump into the November 2021 Microsoft Teams Team product blog where ALL the goodies that were announced for commercial and US Government tenants. Following the lead from last month, we jumped into the Government announcements before discussing the full commercial tenants releases.
This presentation was presented by Joy Apple and Jay Leask at M365 Friday Cabo San Lucas #M365Cabo, Friday, November 11, 2021. #M365Cabo was a unique hybrid conference in which both English and Spanish-speaking presenters shared content both virtually and joined together in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, to present to a virtual audience of over 500 registrants.
As agencies begin to transition to Microsoft Teams and other cloud collaboration systems, they must also start to answer some tough questions about the intersection between adoption, security, and collaboration. In this session, we will discuss some of the pitfalls agencies must consider and both native and third-party solutions to work around these potential roadblocks.
