Join Tim Huckaby and Richard Campbell, Host at .NET Rocks! as they discuss new opportunities with the Cloud. Richard talks about his latest customer that has 90 offices in 75 different countries with the goal of connecting all those offices in the most efficient way. There are 1,700 apps within the ecosystem, so a large part of the project requires looking at what makes sense to move to the cloud and what doesn't. Richard hits on the importance of utilizing Office 365, especially with mail servers and dealing with government mailbox compliance in different countries. This project truly speaks to the power of the hybrid cloud world – an interview not to miss!
