​​Joe Baeza, Microsoft, will be presenting: 

An Overview of Microsoft Azure and 

SharePoint and Yammer – Cloud vs. On-Premises​.

Event Summary: 
An Overview of Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure offers an ever-expanding set of cloud services.  The sheer number of the services in Azure can make it challenging to understand the clear value proposition for cloud computing: speed, scale, and economics.  The service is continually evolving to provide this value with a focus on the things Microsoft customers require: security, integration with existing on-premises systems, and access to the latest innovations in technology​​.

 SharePoint and Yammer – Cloud vs. On-Premises

Social capabilities are quickly becoming a prerequisite for today's businesses.  SharePoint and Yammer work together to provide these services.  The integration of Yammer is an ongoing journey with a focus on SharePoint Online and SharePoint on-premises.​

​About the presenter:

 Joe has been with Microsoft since November of 1997.  He spent 13 years as a consultant with Microsoft Consulting Services.  He has been a technical architect in the Microsoft Technology Center since April of 2011.  His areas of interest and expertise are Office 365 (especially SharePoint Online, Office Graph/Delve, Office Online, support for mobile platforms, and more!) and Microsoft Azure (especially SharePoint on Microsoft Azure and Azure Active Directory).​
