Presentations: SPS Louisville 2012

Another weekend, another great SharePoint Saturday event! 🙂 This time I got to head down to the Bluegrass State (Kentucky) and speak at SharePoint Saturday Louisville, giving a presentation that I enjoy more each time I deliver it: “Office 365 – Why the Cloud Makes IT Easy and Why That’s Difficult.” If you want to download my slides, I’ve posted them to and they’re embedded below as well.

This was the first time I’ve gotten a chance to talk about Office 365 since the preview of the next major wave of changes for the platform were announced, and I think this is going to be a really interesting time to start looking at the platform if you haven’t yet. I’m going to start working on getting my thoughts put together in a separate blog post, but the one thing I realized last week as I was preparing for my talk was that the new release fits really well into it. I think that’s the case because there’s a lot of new compelling functionality that we’re going to see rolling into Office 365 soon, but at the same time there really are a lot of considerations that organizations are going to have to keep in mind if they’re going to be successful with it in the long run.

But since there’s a lot I want to cover there, I’m going to save that for another post. I had a wonderful time in Louisville and especially enjoyed changing a few people’s minds about what Wave 2013 holds for all of us in the SharePoint and Office 365 space (CA Callahan, I’m looking at you 😉 ) Anyways, here’s my slides from the weekend:
