Moving your data to Office 365 – SharePoint Migration Tool

One of the coolest features on Office 365 is OneDrive. Storing personal data and synchronizing file repositories from SharePoint are just a few of the great capabilities of OneDrive. Migrating all those file shares to SharePoint on Office 365 used to be a pain or require expensive tools. But the new SharePoint Migration Tool v2 (BETA) is here to help, and the great thing is that it is FREE!!! Planning – Map the network shares and subfolders and design what the SharePoint structure and sites would be. In this quick walkthrough we will migrate all the corporate logos for Click Enterprise to the Marketing SharePoint site.

Intune Stand-Alone and Hybrid Comparison

Hi All, have you ever need to compare what Intune Stand-Alone and Hybrid can do for you? there are lots of information out there, but none (as far as my research goes), did a comparison between the settings. it is easy to say if you have over 50k devices, you should consider the hybrid scenario (where sccm connects to intune), but if you’re lower than that number? Should you consider Intune Stand-Alone or Hybrid? In his blog post i’ll try to provide you some of the key points and providing a winner (in my opinion). In this post i’m only looking at the MDM solution for iOS and Android Knox comparison and not every single feature that both solutions can provide. Before we start, I’ve focused on the version 1511 of the SCCM with some notes of what available on the 1602 and the latest version of intune, and I…

Cloud (and a bit of Microsoft Azure)

Hi all, I wanted to write something about cloud/azure for long, but time was a constraint for me while working on other things. Today, I finally make the time and I hope you’ll like it. This is my view of the cloud and Microsoft azure and what, again, I think, companies should understand before “moving” to the cloud. To start, what is cloud? Cloud is a concept, and the concept is simple (for me): It is a datacenter, owned by a 3rd party provider, that you trust and where you host your data, not knowing where your data is or who has access to it and you only pay for what you “use”. So let’s transfer this statement to Microsoft Azure. It is a datacenter = Microsoft Azure Owned by a 3rd party = Microsoft You trust and where you host your data = I hope this is yes (well…

old 2015 and new 2016

Hi All, I would like to start this post talking about last year, 2015. 2015 started great, with renewing my MVP award. as you can imagine, this is the 1st email I look for on the 1st day of the year, being part of this community is just something that I cannot explain in works, but if I had to choose one it would be: WOW. 2015 was a crazy year for me, in both professional and personal lives. I had been working as CTO/Principal Consultant (and I also was a non-executive directory) for a company called xinfra, but unfortunately, the owner/director decided to close the company down and, so I decided to take my take the risk and take my own business (RFL Systems) to the next level, instead of working of behalf of other companies. And I hope the RFL Systems brand will only grow this year, with…

Starting discussion: Intune or SCCM

Hi All, I’d like to start this post saying that this is my only opinion and may/may not be the same opinion as Microsoft or any other person and it is based on my experience working on a series companies over the years (from many sectors of the economy and from many countries) So, let’s start. I often get this question, Should we use Microsoft Intune or SCCM? and just few times, they say, should we integrate Intune with SCCM or use it stand alone? Before answering this question, we need to know a bit of the history. And let’s start with SCCM. SCCM born in 1994 as SMS (or System Management Systems) as the same says, it was a system created to manage systems and was created in a 4-6 years update cycle, what I mean by that is that Microsoft release a new version every 4 to 6…

Where after Windows 10? Computer Weekly 500 Club event.

Last week I had the pleasure to present at the Computer Weekly 500 Club. An event for IT leaders that, every month, talks about a different subject about modern challenges faced by organizations. I was invited as one of the three speakers for the night along with Ian Turfrey, IT Director at City & Guilds and Andy Beale, Director of Common Technology Services for GDS. The topic of the month was the future of desktop and technology in general after Windows 10 is released. Conversations were very diverse and the round table discussed very interesting topics proposed by the audience. A great article with the main topics of the events was published on the Computer Weekly website. Check it out. For those who missed the event, here is a brief intro video recorded on the night.
