Microsoft Office Tutorials and References
In Depth Information
At this point, we have completed the foundational work for Office 365. In the last three
chapters, we have covered the following tasks:
Planning, preparing, and remediating your enterprise environment for Office 365,
specifically regarding AD
Establishing federation of your AD with Office 365 using AD FS 2.0
Establishing directory synchronization using the Windows Azure Active Directory
Sync software tool, also commonly referred to as directory synchronization, so you
can continue to manage your environment through AD
We introduced tools provided by the Microsoft Office 365 team, such as MOSDAL and the
Office 365 Deployment Toolkit. Up to this point, each chapter has helped you sequentially
build the foundation for Office 365. This will change in later chapters because you will
start configuring and deploying the individual Office 365 services, which are Exchange
Online, SharePoint Online, Lync Online, and Office 365 Professional Plus. You can proceed
directly to any of the chapters that are specific to the services you want to use. The great
thing about Office 365 is that there is no specific order to deploy the services. There is also
no need for you to deploy all the services. You can pick and choose the services that are
appropriate for your enterprise needs.
Alternatively, you can continue with Chapters 5, 6, and 7 to leverage System Center as an
optional, but recommended, enterprise management suite of tools to build additional
automation and monitoring for your Office 365 deployment. You could also choose to start
deploying services first, and then return to the System Center chapters.
The point is that the deployment can proceed in any direction after the foundational
services have been established. This is also a good testament to the flexibility of Office 365
workload adoption and deployment.
