Managing Office 365 Identities and Requirements

This cover the deployment and planning part of Office 365. I will use the list from Microsoft website and provide links to relevant information about each of them.

On top of all these links, I strongly suggest to get a subscription to Plurasight (http://www.pluralsight.com/). They provide very great online course that cover the present exam.


There is also a full course available on chanel 9 that is a complete overview of the following items. http://channel9.msdn.com/series/Managing-Office-365-Identities-and-Services/01

Also, Microsoft offers a 30-day trial subscription for the E3 enterprise plans. If you have never worked with Office 365 before this is a good way to get started and test it.
