I’m really looking forward SPTechCon in San Francisco this December. SPTechCon is one of the best SharePoint conferences out there and brings together a ton of really talented people in the field so you get a bunch of brains to pick at. And mine will be one of them!
I’ll be discussing the real-life lessons learned of migrating completely from an on-prem SharePoint environment to the cloud-based SharePoint Online environment in Office 365. It was a really interesting process, had many benefits, but came with a number of hiccups that you only understand when you go through the process.
If you’re hoping to attend or wish it were cheaper, you can get $200 off your registration by entering “WADE” (my last name) as a discount code.
What it was like migrating to SharePoint Online
Presented by Matt Wade
December 8, 11:15 am to 12:30 pm
Moving to the cloud is pretty tempting and exciting for myriad reasons, but what does it actually entail at the SharePoint admin level? This session will cover the research, project planing, and lessons learned of an actual on-premises SharePoint-to-SharePoint Online migration process from the beginning—selling it to management—to planning, launch, and finally on to change management and sustaining the system. If you’re planning on going hybrid or migrating fully into the SharePoint cloud, this session will provide you proven practices, prevent headaches, and give you ideas that you can take back and implement in your SharePoint road map.
Audience: IT Pro Essentials, Architecture Essentials, Business Decision Makers
