Don’t believe the hype – why O365 might not be the Droid you are looking for

My research over the last two years showed a big change in the perception of what Office365 is, can be, or should be. More and more companies are struggling with the overwhelming offering and constant changes. Add this to changing regulations and security concerns and suddenly you find yourself looking for alternatives. In this session, I share some insights about our findings and feedback we got from several companies which are on O365 but are not happy with the offering and why they are considering other solutions.
