Use Cases and Deployment Scope

One Drive is currently used in our Street Outreach Program. This program has only one office and most work is done outside of the office. This makes One Drive a good fit for the program. This enables file use and sharing while outreach workers are in the field. A traditional stationary hard drive for files simply would not work. One Drive is used to access files make changes and sync, while our members are mobile. One Drive is used to store presentations, documents, photos, and video files. It makes accessing them on the go easy.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I am using OneDrive for more 5 years. Initially, I was using it personally but last year after my recommendation our company also switched from Dropbox to OneDrive. It is reliable, intuitive and offers wonderful security features. Most of the data we store on cloud storage is sensitive and requires brick wall security. OneDrive takes good care of it and on top of all, its integration with Windows and Office apps makes it the best among other solutions in the market.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We are using OneDrive in a few isolated departments and not companywide. It addresses a constant issue that we have as a SaaS company, which is the storage of sensitive data. We need to store things like lead data, but also need to make sure it is on tight lockdown. OneDrive is good for this.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I don't think any ONE product can be used solely within an org, but we do a good enough job I feel. We needed a solution that was user-friendly, easy to navigate and use from a permissions standpoint. As a growing org, we desperately needed something to house all of our files instead of relying on everyone keeping multiple copies on computers. Our biggest problem OneDrive helped with is ONE location for all updated marketing materials and projects we are working on.

There are a few people that are using GDrive or Box, etc. but the move to OneDrive was seamless and easy for us to make happen and was done quickly and with relatively low effort.

This platform has helped me in storing my very personal and professional stuff in a very secure way. It has assisted me in storing my confidential files. Gives me ample opportunity to check this tool and make the decision to choose it. A great invention by Microsoft which also helps you in keeping direct connection with email.

It is being used by me individually at the moment and we haven't started collaboration. It is a good option for saving files on the go and accessing them from anywhere.

OneDrive is being used as a solution to save user files and documents and synchronize the data with other endpoint user devices. We recently moved our users to use Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and we used this storage solution to store the data. This became available to us with Office365.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

OneDrive is being rolled out as a replacement for individual servers for everyone at my global organization. It is addressing the need for cloud storage, collaboration, and secure mobile access. It's helping us stop the use of unapproved and less secure tools like Google Drive and Basecamp. Employees are excited about using it due to the positive improvements to the UX and ease of use.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

OneDrive has replaced Box at my company. OneDrive is being used as the single cloud-based location to which we update, store and sync all of our files regardless of where we are. This allows me to quickly and easily share files with my team and colleagues giving them access to real-time updates without having to send them multiple files as a document changes.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Our organization moved away from a mix of Dropbox and Google Drive to using OneDrive/SharePoint as our knowledge management / information architecture solution. It's being used organization-wide, albeit with some stragglers still using Google Drive for some collaborative editing, and others occasionally still using email attachments to circulate documents and collaborate.

OneDrive, in concert with SharePoint, allows our team to synchronize their work to our cloud storage, collaborate in real-time, share links to documents rather than send attachments and track changes, and control permissions to individual folders or documents to allow for collaboration with external partners as well as restrict access based on roles internally.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

OneDrive is part of the Office 365 offering, so each user in the organization has access to OneDrive cloud space under their account. In our company, OneDrive is used for personal work documents that users may or may not share with other users and/or the outside world. That's just our case use, but it is also the recommended way to use OneDrive per Microsoft. It allows the users to have their own cloud folder, so they can access their own files from virtually anywhere, and it keeps the general company repository separate from personal stuff.

OneDrive is used by the entire company, with a little more than 200 employees. It is incorporated into our corporate email, where we acquired the entire Office 365 package. We concentrate on shared and private files, documents that accompany us everywhere, everything in the tool helps us to make work routines more practical.

OneDrive is a brand new tool being used by my company as a Cloud sharing service. We share documents for collaboration, work flows for input, and HR tracking. It's being used all over the company, slowly being picked up from department to department. It helps to have a central place to put files that are only accessible to those you invite.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Working in an educational facility, OneDrive is used for instructors' personal drives for storage of documents related to instruction and other school-based materials. As part of our organization's rollout of Office 365 and other Office apps, our organization has utilized OneDrive instead of local server based personal storage options. It is also used as a platform for collaboration between instructors using the cloud-based sharing tools available.

Our entire organization uses OneDrive. It functions as a continuous backup of the files on my laptop, allows my team (and the entire company) to share files and collaboratively work on documents, spreadsheets, images, slide decks, etc. The ability to collaborate—and especially for multiple people to collaborate on the same document at the same time—is quite useful.

OneDrive is being used as a file transfer method, that allows for work on documents between multiple users. This allows them to change what they need, as well as share what they want easily from whereever they are, as long as they have an internet connection. This product helped create the more collaborative feel that the department was missing.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Being a Microsoft shop, the integration of OneDrive into the OS has been a boon to users. We have leveraged this integration by configuring the service to include the users desktop and documents folders to provide a seamless "cloud backup" of their important files. Through this, users always have access to their most important documents regardless of the device being used.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

A very useful tool for syncing file backups to the cloud. We used Active Directory to move all users' folders (Desktop, Documents, Pictures, and Videos) to OneDrive. They are all backed up and synced immediately to the cloud. When a user's computer goes down or we need to set them up on another device, we just create a new profile and then sign the into OneDrive and they have access to all their files and they are kept in sync across devices. Not easy to deploy but a good solution.

OneDrive is enabled on all our users because of our O365 subscriptions but the official solution that is promoted and supported is Google Drive. The only real plus value of OneDrive is the huge 1TB included of storage with O365 subscriptions. The OneDrive client is also useful to sync Sharepoint sites.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

For the most part, we don't make institution-wide use of OneDrive because of a few inherent limitations of OneDrive and the other software that we use. First, OneDrive is not good at "pot sharing" among the organization. What I'd like to be able to do is move our entire server of old files onto a OneDrive pot (each user gets 1 TB) that everyone has access to, but that is unnecessarily difficult and involves some sharing shenanigans that most of our users are not technically capable of navigating.

So users use it in different ways. I use it as a pot for keeping access to all of the files I download across multiple devices, since our primary document management system requires that we download, edit, and re-upload to manipulate files. OneDrive is my "in process" and medium term storage pot, in the event that I manipulate a file but don't get to the re-upload part.

Onedrive is extremely useful and it is used in every department of our business. We use it to store and save every type of file in the cloud and that way we can access them in every device or PC of our company. By using it, we only need an internet connection to share files, and when there are no flash drives or portable hard drives is the best tool for copying or exchanging data and information between our PCs.

OneDrive is being used across our whole organization. It helps tremendously with collaboration across teams - especially as we have many remote users. It also addresses the issue of being able to access information on the road, and provides backups for our files more effectively than our servers did.

We have started using it by departments, with the intention of using it for the whole organization. It's currently addressing issues with on-premise server space. This will lower our overall cost and allow the end user to reach their files from any device and more reliably.
