Microsoft Azure and Azure Active Directory are the foundation stones upon which Office 365 is built and deployed. This session will dig into the integration between the two and to explore the Hybrid world of Site-to-Site VNets and Express Route which allows high speed secure and private connections from your datacentre,  main business sites or indeed hosting sites directly into Microsoft’s Azure Datacentres, thus offering more reliability, faster speeds, lower latencies and higher security than typical connections over the Internet. With ExpressRoute, you can establish connections to Azure at an ExpressRoute location (Exchange Provider facility) or directly connect to Azure from your existing WAN network (such as an MPLS VPN) provided by a network service provider.

Gary Steere – Troubleshooting AutoDiscover and Availability in Exchange and Office 365

AutoDiscover and Availability Services help solve two key problems – finding your Exchange server (AutoDiscover), and getting calendar free times and busy times (Availability).  These services are used by Outlook clients, Skype for Business clients and Office 365 alike.The two services experienced only minor changes under Exchange 2007, 2010 and even early 2013.  The current change in the cloud landscape has changed that. What you knew about AutoDiscover in Exchange 2007, or even Exchange 2013 CU4, has changed.  Did you know that users on an Exchange 2013 CU4 server may use a different method of checking availability for coworkers in Office 365 than users on CU7?This session will cover what you need to know about AutoDiscover and Availability to support your organization and understand how to troubleshoot common problems.  We will address common scenarios such as an organization with Exchange 2007, 2010 and 2013 on-premises in a hybrid configuration with users in Office 365. The session will be of value to both Exchange and Lync/Skype for Business attendees as both products use Exchange AutoDiscover and Availability.

Justin Harris – So You Think Your Directory is Ready for Office 365?

Making the choice to migrate to Office 365 can be a big decision for any company.

Does your on-premises Active Directory infrastructure consist of multiple forests that may include several account and resource forests? Have your on-premises Active Directory environment accumulated 10+ years of bloat that has spanned multiple administrators? If so, this session will walk through the effort that is required to ensure the on-premises Active Directory is prepared for Office 365 hybrid connectivity and for a successful migration.
