Build 2016 For System Builders – Office Sessions

So far in this series I've covered the sessions for Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10, today I will wrap up with the coverage of Office sessions that are important for those of you who deploy and support Office 2016 and Office 365 in your environments. There are plenty more Office sessions for those of you with developer focus, but here I've just tried to highlight the ones that aren't too heavy on development, and instead focus on integration capabilities that are available.
