How to Build a Digital Workplace in Office 365 in 3 Weeks


This session will explain how a new industry model of SaaS solutions is changing the way that Office 365 is adopted and that projects lasting 3 to 6 months or more is changing to a new model of projects completing in 3 to 6 weeks. We will start by walking through the best practice process for an Office 365 project that anyone can use to minimize project duration and maximize delivery effectiveness. We will then demonstrate how this process can be applied in a traditional Office 365 project and what a team can expect to achieve using traditional development tools. Finally, we will introduce the audience to the class of SaaS solutions often referred to as “Intranet-in-a-box” which include pre-built templates, branding, and functionality that can be quickly configured and deployed. Powell software will be used for demonstrations.
