Are you curious about Office 365?
What it is, how it can save you time and help you be more productive? Are you getting the full benefits of all that Office 365 has to offer?
One of the ways for people to get the most out of this new and constantly evolving suite of products is to have people to turn to; a place to go to explore new features and functionality or just learn more, share experiences and ask questions. Formal training is great (we strongly encourage ongoing training for users of the Office 365 suite of products), but there are times when you just want to interact with others or ask a simple question.
Help has arrived.
Slalom Consulting is pleased to be a founding organizer of the Boston Office 365 User Group. Our co-organizers include Wellington Street Consulting, Microsoft, Jornata, and Cognizant Technology Solutions. The group will meet monthly, beginning on Thursday, May 22nd, and on the third Thursday of every month thereafter. The event will take place at Microsoft’s New England Research and Development Center (NERD) at One Memorial Drive in Cambridge. Attendance is free and food and beverages will be provided. You can learn more and register for the meeting or join the mailing list.
Fittingly, for the initial event, Microsoft’s Chris Bortlik will present an overview of Office 365. His discussion will include an overview of current Office 365 functionality, including Yammer, Lync Online, mobile applications and Office 365 Pro Plus. He’ll also explore administration and update issues. Chris is an Office 365 technology architect at Microsoft.
There are plenty of ways to keep the conversation going. We have a web site located at www.BostonO365UserGroup.com, a Linked In group and a Yammer group, and you can follow us on Twitter @Bos365.
We want this to be your group.
Feedback, ideas, and suggestions are welcome. What topics would you like to see the group address? Are there other elements that you feel should be added to the program? We’ll provide a place to air your grievances and perhaps learn how others have dealt with the issues you’ve encountered.
We’re also looking for event sponsors to provide food, beverages and raffle prizes for the events or pick up the tab for the Office 365 Happy Hour that will follow each meeting at a local bar or restaurant. If you’re interested, or know anyone who might be, please contact us.
We look forward to seeing you there!
