OneDrive

One Drive is well suited for anyone who is already and Outlook/Hotmail/Microsoft user. The integration is pretty streamlined. viewing, opening, sharing and editing documents is a breeze. It is particularly suited well for an office on the go. Files can be uploaded and shared with ease. Files sync most of the time relative quick and can be accessed at other mobile sites. Additionally, the storage of pictures and videos for presentations makes it very mobile office friendly. It would work as a cloud backup if it was only used on a desktop.

Pros

  • Easy storage of Microsoft Office application files
  • Live collaboration with multiple users
  • Easy online and native app access

Cons

  • There are some conflicts when saving files that require manual action from users. When a user is non-IT related, they might not know how to resolve the conflict and they don't know if their files are being kept updated or not.
  • Bandwidth usage is an issue when somebody moves big folders or files to OneDrive. If many users do that at the same time, network performance can be affected.
  • Sometimes it is hard to realize who you are sharing files with. Maybe some custom views should be created so it is easier to review the files I'm sharing with other users and with which privilege.

This product is tightly integrated with our SharePoint and Outlook environment. The fact that it is as convenient as a cloud service that we are used to, but more secure is a winner.

It is really set up and forget. Nothing more.

Alternatives Considered

OneDrive's main advantage is the relationship with Microsoft Operating System and other business products such as Office. It is easy to integrate into AD and data is safe. Other advantage is that you can download the desktop version and easily see the status of each file you have in OneDrive.

Return on Investment

  • It reduced the volume of inbound/outbound email traffic as links are shared instead of heavy files.
  • I still think this new approach of O365 and OneDrive has to develop knowledge for end users. It is a very different approach from what it used to be in prior versions so developing people's abilities to use these tools MUST be addressed somehow. You can have the best tools, but people need to learn how to use them.
