In 2013 Microsoft released SharePoint Online and Office 365, which added cloud functionality to SharePoint. The addition offers unique advantages, such as consistent updates, synchronization between mobile devices and PCs, and an app ecosystem to add functionality, which more and more companies are taking advantage of.
Trust StoneShare to bring your IT infrastructure to the 21st century, and reap the rewards of the Cloud with a seamless transition.
Microsoft Azure is Microsoft’s Cloud platform and StoneShare’s home in the Cloud, where we have installed our own key systems. It is the best place for you to build your IT architecture because it provides amazing opportunities for innovation and growth for any business.
Office 365 offers new cloud functionality that you’ll soon wonder how you ever did without. This functionality includes access to your applications and files anywhere and on any device, secure file sharing, collaboration tools such as online conferences and social networks, and the ability to manage users and rules easily using a unified administration portal.
Moving your IT infrastructure to the Cloud is a huge move and to be honest a little scary. Luckily, you don’t have to do it all at once, but can combine the best of both worlds of on-premise and external Cloud hosting with a Hybrid Cloud Architecture.
With a Hybrid Cloud Architecture, you can avoid the risk of moving custom built applications that are key to your organization by keeping them on-premise, and still use the Cloud for tasks it does best, such as storing large amounts of information for analyzing.
SharePoint 2013 is the system that keeps on giving.
With the App Model, you can build your own custom apps that meet your unique needs, or take advantage of publicly available apps that offer the latest functionality everyone is talking about. For example the app Yammer, which adds a real time social network to your SharePoint for more effective collaboration.
If there is one thing you’ll notice about Office 365 and SharePoint Online, it’s that they have a lot of applications. And we mean a lot.
So how do you keep track of all these applications and make sure that everything works together well? When you use the Cloud, everything integrates together seamlessly. Need to switch between Outlook and OneDrive for Business quickly and without a headache? No problem. Want to browse and attach links to OneDrive files from within Outlook? You can do that too. With the Cloud, everything is everywhere and connected together.
Now that you’ve likely been sold on the advantages of Cloud features in SharePoint, the big question is how to migrate your current system to the Cloud. Luckily, StoneShare will support you every step of the way to ensure it is a smooth and error-free transition. Using our automated migration processes, you won’t have to worry about the risk of manual errors. Whether you decide to migrate your whole system to the Cloud or part of it, we will get your system up and running so you can be on your way and happy with the advantages of a Cloud infrastructure.
