10:15 – 11:15 : Collaboration – Office 365 Groups (Tony Redmond)
Office 365 Groups cause many different reactions. Some don’t like the way that they usurp SharePoint team sites. Some decry the lack of management and control. Some like the evolution away from standard email distribution groups but wonder why Office 365 Groups can’t be implemented for on-premises applications. And some consider them a short-sighted attempt to remove Microsoft’s focus on collaboration technology away from Yammer. Like most ideas and opinions, there are many views to be considered to understand the full story, which is what we will attempt to do in this session. No guarantee is given that we’ll arrive at an answer that will satisfy, but at least we’ll have an information-filled discussion about the different aspects of Office 365 Groups.

14:45 – 15:45 : Collaboration – Advanced Identity & Authentication scenarios for Office 365 (Michael Van Horenbeeck)
Identities and authentication are the cornerstone of security in Office 365, but not all organizations have the same security requirements. Regardless of your specific needs, it is important to carefully consider available options and factors such as complexity and cost; the implications for each option are very different. Exploring all possible features offered by Office 365, and by extension by Azure Active Directory, would take more than an hour, but that won’t stop us from discussing the most common scenarios and solutions, including advanced topologies and how newer security technologies like Microsoft Passport and Multi-Factor Authentication can help you in your quest to improve security and flexibility.
14:45 – 15:45 : Communication – Express Route (Tommy Clarke)
How do you ensure that you get the best possible network performance in an Office 365 environment? What can you actually do to get crystal clear Skype calls. How do you get network performance as performant and predictable as in your own local environment?
During the session, we will review what should be contemplated on in your network architecture. We also review Express Route for Office 365 and how this gives you an SLA that provides predictable network performance and helps with the ability to better manage network availability and reliability.
