The University of Washington (UW) is using SharePoint to answer the shifting challenges of IT as things move from "top down" to "bottom up." This session will cover lessons we have learned in the past and lessons we are learning now as we "look to the clouds" to host academic and collaborative solutions that bring real value to the diverse UW community of almost 140,000 people. In this context we will drill down to our experience of rolling out OneDrive for Business to academic, research and medical constituents. We will start this session with high level description of the University of Washington culture, constraints and drivers. We'll descend into more detail and share: our roadmap, implementation goals, HIPAA challenges, FERPA support and highlight some of the gotcha's and wins we have encountered along the way. Finally we will drill down into OneDrive for Business and demystify it's features and functions through hands on demonstration - as answering the questions "What is OneDrive for Business?" and "How can I use it?" have been central to our rollout and adoption by our community.
