SharePoint v SharePoint Online
I’m starting to keep a list of notes here as I read, watch and learn. Here they are for your reference as well.
An online survey of nearly 500 readers last week showed a surprising and interesting trend: While 66 percent of current SharePoint online users have Office 365 subscriptions (compared with 14 percent using Windows Azure and 15 percent using other cloud providers), of those planning to run SharePoint in the cloud in the future, 55 percent will opt for Office 365 and nearly 29 percent will use Windows Azure.
Smaller organizations are the most obvious candidates to go to SharePoint Online Office 365
Whether or not larger shops are using Office 365, Windows Azure or third-party infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) or managed services providers (or any combination of those), the largest trend is toward hybrid implementations where they are adding capacity to existing SharePoint infrastructure incrementally.
“We’re probably seeing 80 percent of our customers go hybrid cloud in some way, maybe for example moving My Sites and some of their extranets to the cloud, and keeping their line of business integration on premise for now,” said Ben Curry, managing partner at Summit 7 Systems.
If you want to use all of the content management capabilities, deeper integration into other line of business systems, those are the kinds of customers that will continue to run SharePoint either in their own servers or Windows Azure,” said Adriaan Van Wyk, CEO of K2
|External data integration is always worth to take a look. There are some improvements with 2013 (mostly for developers), but still huge gaps, especially with SharePoint Online.
