Course Objectives

This intensive instructor-led course provides students with the knowledge and experience to implement Office 365 in a large corporate environment using the FastTrack three-phase delivery process of Pilot, Deploy, and Enhance. The course consists of two distinct parts:

  • Lecture/Lab. Part One is the training phase of the course and consists of six modules. Each module has an associated paper-based lab that is based on an actual, real-world Office 365 deployment involving a medium-sized enterprise organization. The aim of the scenario is to confirm that students have learned the concepts from the modules.
  • Case Study. Part Two is the testing phase and consists of a different scenario based on another real-world deployment, this time involving a large enterprise deployment. During the case study, students will work in groups to create a design solution for the organization that is based on the information provided in the scenario and gained from interviewing the instructor, who will role-play the part of the customer. Each group will then present its design to the remainder of the class.

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the Office 365 FastTrack deployment methodology
  • Identify the benefits of the FastTrack approach compared to the current deployment process.
  • Plan the Pilot phase of the FastTrack deployment process.
  • Plan the Deploy phase to ensure this phase commences correctly.
  • Plan the optional sections of the Enhance phase, depending on the customer’s requirements.
