What is Cloud and Why

Submitted by Vladilen on Thu, 01/16/2020 - 00:25

Consider some shifts happened in IT during last decades:

  • Service-Oriented Model
  • Virtualization
  • Automation
  • Faster Communications
  • Fuzzy Organization Boundaries - Remote Workers
  • More Complicated Software and high IT professional salary

All of that led to Cloud concept

MS Teams or SharePoint

Submitted by Vladilen on Thu, 11/21/2019 - 18:22

MS Teams + SharePoint site

  • is good for "managerial" people, who need to keep everything under control in a single place
  • is good for "collaboration-style" activities, i.e. Projects, PoC, brainstorming

Default retention period is 180 days (can be prolonged)

Permissions are simplified (you have owners and members only)

Recently I tried to update module "Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell". It was updated OK, but:

Get-Module Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell -ListAvailable | ft -a

gave me two modules So I tried to uninstall module with older version "16.0.8525.1200" and import module with newer version. It failed with error: "The version '###' of module '16.0.8525.1200' is currently in use. Retry the operation after closing the applications.

Actually means "you cannot use version number with leading zeroes". I.e., e.g. instead of version number '0.1.0013'  try '0.1.13'

SharePoint powershell automation, DSC and DevOps

Automation is not the same as DSC and DevOps.

Automation is about changing existing process - to enable it start and work automatically, without human attendance, i.e. faster and more stable. The good example is site collection provisioning. 

DevOps is an idea to manage infrastructure configuration via code with well-known and proved developers practices - ADLC, version control etc.
