​Topic: Governance in a Hybrid SharePoint Environment With the advent of the cloud, major decisions are being made about whether to stay on premises, maintain a hybrid environment, or move to the cloud. Microsoft has stated a best practice of maintaining a hybrid environment for SharePoint until a full cloud transition can be made, but is that right for your business?

We will discuss factors such as security, user adoption, governance, and implementation, and gain a better understanding of why companies across every industry are making decisions to stay on premises, go hybrid or make the full transition to the cloud to empower you with an understanding of which will be best for you in the long term. We will also discuss new SharePoint features which enable you to implement governance of a hybrid SharePoint environment, and some of the factors to take into consideration when planning a transition to hybrid or cloud.
