Event Details

Hello -

Please be our special guest at the Azure ‘n’ Action Café on March 19th, 2014 from 12 pm - 1 pm EST. 

In our 2nd session of 2014 we explore how many companies are leveraging Software as a Service (SaaS) for Exchange, Lync, and SharePoint to lower their operational costs.  Many companies have been using DirSync with password sync in support of these SaaS environments.

Once your companies Active Directory Identities are in Windows Azure Active Directory (WAAD) you can support Exchange, Lync, and SharePoint by using Microsoft’s infrastructure instead of your own with managed accounts instead of federated accounts.  One less dependency on your companies on premises environment.

One of the greatest reasons to do this has nothing to do with this SAAS workload at all.  A free benefit is that you can now leverage these identities in WAAD by using them for authentication for other workloads.  For example if you require more customization that can be provided within Office 365 SharePoint SaaS you can stand up a customized SharePoint 2013 environment in Azure Infrastructure and a Service (IAAS) and leverage Microsoft’s Access Control Services (ACS) as a claims provider with Microsoft’s WAAD as the Identity Provider as the basis for authentication.  All of this without setting up any kind of VPN between the on premises environment and Azure / O365.

In this next installment of the Azure Café we will walk you through this scenario an Office 365 SharePoint web site integrated with an Office 365 Site Collection, and an IAAS hosted SharePoint 2013 environment all using Microsoft to provide authentication.
