User adoption has been one of my war cries ever since I started using SharePoint in 2006 to coordinate AIDS vaccine research data for Dr. Susan Zolla-Pazner and the CAVD (Collaboration for AIDS Vaccine Discovery).

The Office 365 Operational Success Playbook
CollabTalk LLC
May 06, 2019
Looking at the Office 365 platform, with the core workloads of Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Skype, they include decades of on-premises history with robust and mature security, compliance and governance capabilities as standalone offerings. Customers around the world have come to rely on the on-premises versions of these tools, but they are quickly moving to the cloud, which requires a review – and possibly a re-thinking – of operational practices to ensure our environments remain secure, compliant, and well-governed.

While the Office 365 platform inherits the robust security, compliance, and governance capabilities of its on-premises predecessors, the goal of this whitepaper is to help customers review their security, governance and compliance requirements as they migrate to Office 365 to ensure that these requirements are being met — and any gaps are being managed. This paper, sponsored by Spanning, is based on two previous CollabTalk research studies: Organizational Security & Compliance Practices in Office 365, and Improving Governance in Office 365.

Organizational Security & Compliance Practices in Office 365
CollabTalk LLC
April 15, 2019
Collaboration Managers and IT Teams express confidence in their Office 365 security and compliance practices, but when pressed on specifics about the gaps between out-of-the-box capabilities and insufficient processes and tools, most respondents were unaware of the potential risks. In this research paper, you will learn:

How organizations are running security and compliance today, looking specifically at the evolving patterns of end user and team collaboration, and the cost/impact of these changes.
The real-world issues facing most organizations, and the over-reliance on out-of-the-box capabilities.
The “confidence gap” in core aspects of organizational security and compliance readiness.

Improving Governance in Office 365
CollabTalk LLC
April 01, 2019
Based on research conducted by CollabTalk and the BYU Marriott School of Management, and sponsored by Microsoft, Spanning, Rencore, and tyGraph, this report sheds light on governance practices within organizations at a time when moving from on-premises to the cloud is increasingly common. In this report, you will learn:

What are the common collaboration patterns, and solutions used?
Are there differences in the lifecycle of sites/environments on-prem versus cloud? (Are cloud environments more temporary? Are on-prem environments more closely managed? Are there differences in the lifecycle of data?)
What is the length of engagement with an on-prem SharePoint site compared to a Microsoft Teams team or channel?
Are there different governance trends by region, or by industry?
Does governance ownership change when moving to the cloud? If so, what are the impacts?
What are the financial impacts of poor governance planning and oversight?
