New releases of SharePoint used to involve only one key decision: when do we upgrade? With SharePoint 2013, however, organizations have to decide not only when to upgrade, but where: Will your organization be best served by a 100 percent on-premises SharePoint, a 100 percent cloud deployment, or a hybrid of the two?
This white paper written by Sean Douglas, senior delivery manager and SharePoint architect for Dell Services, will help you make the right choice for your organization. It details the key criteria to consider, from security concerns to business intelligence needs. Then it explores a number of real-world business scenarios to show how your organization’s history with SharePoint and its current and future business needs will affect your choice of on-premises SharePoint, Office 365, or a hybrid deployment.
