Infrastructure Planning and Design Guides Released

SharePoint Online—Evaluating Software-plus-Services

The Infrastructure Planning and Design team has released a new guide: SharePoint Online—Evaluating Software-plus-Services.
Considering an online solution for your organization’s collaboration services? The SharePoint Online—Evaluating Software-plus-Services guide presents a clear comparison of SharePoint collaboration technologies across on-premises, standard hosting, and dedicated hosting scenarios. It is designed to be used as a framework for evaluating the business and technical feasibility of moving to Microsoft SharePoint Online. It identifies key SharePoint workloads, and provides a customized assessment to help the organization determine which offering best meets the organization’s requirements.
Download the guide by visiting and selecting “SharePoint Online–Evaluating Software-plus-Services” under the IPD One-click Downloads, listed on the bottom right of the page.
Infrastructure Planning and Design streamlines the planning process by:

  • Defining the technical decision flow through the planning process.
  • Listing the decisions to be made and the commonly available options and considerations.
  • Relating the decisions and options to the business in terms of cost, complexity, and other characteristics.
  • Framing decisions in terms of additional questions to the business to ensure a comprehensive alignment with the appropriate business landscape.
