Congratulations to Microsoft for <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/office365/online-software.aspx" target="_blank">releasing the public beta of Office 365</a>. The buzz that we’re hearing about <a title="Office 365" href="http://www.colligo.com/sharepoint-solutions/business/office-365-cloud/">Office 365</a> is incredible and we’ve talked to a lot of customers who are looking at either moving totally to Office 365 or creating a hybrid environment with both on-premise and cloud-based SharePoint.

We’re really proud to have been the first company in our market to <a href="/news-releases/colligo-networks’-contributor-pro-suite-introduces-industry-leading-support-for-microsoft-office-365/">announce support for Office 365 </a>and actually had Microsoft demonstrate <a title="Colligo Contributor" href="http://www.colligo.com/products/contributor/">Colligo Contributor</a> working with Office 365 at the AIIM/Info360 conference in Washington, DC in March.

The Colligo team has just returned from the AIIM/Info360 conference in Washington, DC, where Colligo was exhibiting in the Microsoft pavilion and presenting as part of the SharePoint track. It was definitely an action packed 3 days and I’ve noted some personal highlights and general observations from the conference below:

Colligo’s booth in the Microsoft partner pavilion

No matter what you call it, hosted or cloud-based, <a title="sharepoint online services" href="/sharepoint-solutions/business/office-365-cloud/">SharePoint Online services</a> are becoming increasingly popular for organizations that want to take advantage of the features and capabilities of SharePoint, but don't want the overhead associated with managing an on-premise SharePoint installation.

With Microsoft's recent announcement of <a title="Office 365" href="/sharepoint-solutions/business/office-365-cloud/">Office 365</a> (the newest incarnation of BPOS, planned for rollout in 2011) and their renewed drive into the cloud computing market, organizations from large to small, will be looking at hosted or cloud based SharePoint as an alternative to on-premise.
