Press Release

Metalogix A Featured Presenter in InformationWeek

Online Event Shares How a Governance Plan with Supporting Tools Can Effectively Manage “SharePoint Sprawl”

Metalogix Software, a provider in content lifecycle management (CLM) solutions for Microsoft® SharePoint®, Exchange®, and legacy environments, today announced that it will be co-presenting an InformationWeek webinar that will explore best practices on how to use SharePoint online in a hybrid cloud environment. The webinar, titled “Utilizing SharePoint Online in a Hybrid Cloud Environment,” will take place on June 7, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Stephen Cawood, Microsoft SharePoint MVP and director of product marketing for Metalogix will be presenting.

“SharePoint Online and the pending release of Office 365 gives organizations a flexible choice in how they manage their SharePoint infrastructure on-premise, in a private cloud or a hybrid scenario,” said Stephen Cawood,  director of product marketing, Metalogix. “Many organizations are using SharePoint as a document management platform, but SharePoint Online adds additional value as an affordable hosted option.”

The online event will offer best practices for managing a hybrid SharePoint environment and showcase how other companies can use SharePoint Online for document and application management. It will also outline how a governance plan with supporting tools can effectively manage “SharePoint sprawl.”

Many organizations are discovering the value of hybrid SharePoint cloud scenarios by synching their Microsoft SharePoint servers with Microsoft Office 365 or BPOS, seeing powerful flexibility and high availability for their valued enterprise content. But, to make the most of any adoption of Microsoft Online Services planning, migration and on-going cloud management must be performed in a holistic way. Metalogix is the only migration vendor approved by Microsoft for use with Office 365 or BPOS dedicated servers.

Registration for this webinar is open now. You can register today by visiting: https://www.techwebonlineevents.com/ars/eventregistration.do?mode=eventr...

The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
