SharePoint Podcast Episode #326 - Be the Boss of Your MOSS
In this episode, Todd and I don’t do a terrible job of staying on topic. We do start off talking about a big game but transition it into a motivating thought for the day. With that out of the way, we move on to a discussion of a top 10 list of intranets that SharePoint DOMINATES! But you probably already knew that. From on-prem to the cloud, the guys then talk about some features and announcements for SharePoint Online. Some of it is old news but that just serves as a reminder the rate of change in the cloud and confusing at times. It is not you, it is the cloud’s fault.
Say Goodbye to Traditional PC Lifecycle Management
Traditional IT tools, including Microsoft SCCM, Ghost Solution Suite, and KACE, often require considerable custom configurations by T3 technicians (an expensive and often elusive IT resource) to enable management of a hybrid onsite + remote workforce. In many cases, even with the best resources, organizations are finding that these on-premise tools simply cannot support remote endpoints consistently and reliably due to infrastructure limitations.
To round out the show, there is talk of new PowerShell cmdlets for SharePoint Online and how to make PowerShell easier to use if you are on Windows 7 or 8. Finally, viewer Blake Olson was scheduled to join us to talk about the “crop report” for his home state of Colorado but we ran out of time. Better luck next time. If you want to talk to Blake about SharePoint or crops, you can find him on Twitter @blakeolson.
