Cloud Workshop



The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will hold a class on Google’s G-Suite and Microsoft Office 365.

Participants will learn the popular features of the competing cloud products with the best features of each suite program to be highlighted. Following the course, participants will have a new understanding of what is drawing companies to the cloud and the benefits of each product.

Attendees will also be given an introduction to SharePoint. Essentially, SharePoint is a document management and collaboration tool developed by Microsoft. It is an intranet and content management system that is used for internal purposes to assist with bringing organizations together. Correspondingly, as part of the session, attendees will be introduced to a useful sharepoint migration tool.

SharePoint is tightly integrated with familiar client desktop applications, e-mail, and web browsers and, as a result, it provides a consistent user experience that can simplify how people interact with content, processes, and business data. This level of integration, coupled with robust functionality, helps users to employ services independently and facilitates product adoption.

Ultimately, if you use the SharePoint Content Management System for day-to-day tasks like moving SharePoint lists and libraries across sites and farms, then a SharePoint migration tool is vital.

SharePoint is comprised of a multipurpose set of technologies and it can integrate with Office 365 making it compatible with multiple document management capabilities. SharePoint’s core functions involve storing documents in a more effective format than regular folder systems and bringing organizations together so that everyone involved can receive critical and relevant information.

The course will take place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Feb. 8 in Room 200 of Marilyn Horne Hall at 2 Marilyn Horne Way. The cost is $25, and all materials are provided; computers are not necessary.
