Yesterday I covered some of the Windows 10 sessions at Ignite 2017 Australia, and today the focus shifts to Office 365 sessions. For many of our OEM and SBC partners, Office 365 has been a game changer when it comes to how Office is sold to customers, but it’s opened up a new range of back end services that they can now utilise. Not all of the session recordings have been posted as at the time of writing these, so expect to see some topics revisited as the online catalogue is fully populated. The session I have listed first is incredibly important for those who haven’t yet had to look at Office 365. It’s presented by a Redmond based Australian, so I think you should enjoy it.
Managing End of Life for Office products and services
Major Office release waves are approaching the end of their lifecycle, with extended support ending for Office, SharePoint and Exchange 2007 next year and the 2010 wave in 2020. Now is the time to plan to upgrade on-premises software or move to the always-up-to-date Office 365 subscription service. In this session learn how to plan and execute a once in a generation productivity platform migration.
Automating your Office 365 Administration with PowerShell and Azure Automation
There are many day-to-day tasks that can be simplified by using PowerShell. Combine this with the amazing capabilities of Azure Automation and you have a recipe to eliminate many of the tasks necessary for the administration of Office 365. Join Microsoft Premier Field Engineers, Mark Rhodes and Brian Farnhill as they demonstrate and explains what you need to know about PowerShell, Office 365 and Azure Automation in order to minimise, speed up and automate your Office 365 management.
