Talking Cloud with SharePoint Server MVP Jeong Woo Choi

SharePoint Server MVP Jeong Woo Choi

From: Korea

Time as an MVP: 2 years



Which technical communities are you most active in?

SharePoint Korea


How did you first start in community?

I wanted to share my knowledge about the SharePoint Server Product including SharePoint Online .

What's the best technical tip you have for implementing Cloud deployment?

Managing the development related to SharePoint Online, it wasn’t easy to port what was embodied in the on-premise environment.

The reason for this was the limitation of server programming model in the cloud environment. However, the issue was solved through the client techniques using Silverlight and the JavaScript.

I recommend the hybrid development method using both the server programming and the client programming appropriately rather than giving up on the whole process due to the given environment that’s often burdened with limitations.


What do you tell people who are considering using the Cloud, but aren't sure about making the move?

We need to consider the strategies to maximize the strengths of the Cloud. It could be possible by turning the focus onto the effectiveness of Cloud implementation on evolutionary improvement in the workplace and the performance enhancement in information infrastructure rather than focusing on the cost saving.

Moreover, the Office 365 is foremost the best Cloud service for IT employees. Not only does it offer the Office Client environment which is already familiar for most corporate users, but it also allows the easy expansion into the Cloud through Hybrid system, even if you are already using Microsoft infrastructure on premise.
