– In the same service family: For example, you can move from Office 365 Business Essentials to Office 365 Business Premium, or from Office 365 Enterprise E1 to Office 365 Enterprise E3.
– From a standalone plan: For example, you can move from Exchange Online Plan 1 to Office 365 Enterprise E1.
– To a different service family: For example, you can move from Office 365 Business Essentials to Office 365 Enterprise E3.
For information about how to change subscriptions, including how to move from a trial to a paid subscription, see Switch to a different Office 365 plan or subscription.

Migrating SharePoint 2010 Corporate Websites or Infrastructure to SharePoint 2013

Posted on

SharePoint 2013 Cumulative Update (CU) or a Service Pack (SP). Be aware that you need to install them before migrating any site and before delivering your SharePoint Infrastructure Environment.

The most important part is the “testing” part from Business. A 100% PowerShell complete is not 100% Business testing complete. After their go the site/infrastructure is “up and “running”.

By publishing a service application, you can optimize resources, avoid redundancy, and provide enterprise-wide services without installing a dedicated enterprise services farm. You can publish the following service applications in a SharePoint 2013 farm:

• Business Data Connectivity
• Machine Translation
• Managed Metadata
• User Profile
• Search
• Secure Store

What is ASP.NET console application?

Posted on

  • CoreCLR – minimal subset of .NET Framework that is ~11MB in size and that supports true side-by-side execution. Yes, your application can specify exact version of CLR it needs to run and it doesn’t conflict with another versions of CLR on same box.
  • DNX runtime – formerly named as K runtime, console based runtime to manage CLR versions, restore packages and run commands that our application defines.
  • Framework level dependency injection – this is something we don’t have with classic console applications that have static entry point but we have it with ASP.NET console applications (they have also method Main but it’s not static).
  • More independence from Visual Studio – it’s easier to build and run applications in build and continuous integration servers as there’s no need (or less need) for Visual Studio and its components. Applications can define their commands for different things like generating EF migrations and running unit tests.

Outlook Online & Google Mail for developers – What’s the difference?

Posted on

The two platforms are very different and offer varying degrees of customizations.

Outlook Online

Outlook Online offers developers the same amount of freedom when it comes to designing their user interfaces as Word and Excel Online. Microsoft encourages the use of the jQuery library, by automatically including a reference to it when creating a new Mail App.

Outlook Mail Apps offers two choices when it comes to building user interfaces:

  • Read apps
  • Compose apps


Google Mail

Google mail’s offering is called gadgets, which are essentially custom HTML, CSS and JavaScript that runs within the context of the user’s Gmail inbox. As with Apps for Office, the custom code is run inside an iframe and can contain almost the same Html as most webpages.

Google offers two customization options, namely:

  • Sidebar gadgets
  • Contextual gadgets
