Evaluating and Optimizing Your Office 365 Environment

Join us for fast-paced, informative, and practical sessions led by industry experts and experienced customers. Come away with valuable lessons on key topics like optimizing information architecture, improving user experience, strategic change management, KM in the cloud, social-collaboration, and more.
