Extracting more value from business as usual - our transition to Office 365

Presentation from Intranets2017

About my talk

At KCTCS, we’re finding ways to increase the value of our tools while simply encouraging work to happen the way people normally work. Using all of the common tools for communication and collaboration, we are making business as usual work better for us because of the services and approaches used on the back end from Office 365.

This session will share:

  • our approach on how we are transitioning from a traditional intranet to a broader digital workplace supported by Office 365 services
  • examples of how these services work in practice
  • the balance between no funding and delivering the right activities and business processes
