The SharePoint 2019 hybrid environment architecture from Lambert Consulting provides flexibility and the ability to store sensitive and highly confidential content on-premises in your own data center while storing collaborative or non-sensitive data in a public cloud such asOffice 365, SharePoint Online, Microsoft Azure or AWS.
The problems that continued to make headlines with the leak of classified data from NSA IT administrator Edward Snowden have undoubtedly damaged the reputation of the cloud public. The NSA's PRISM data-mining program has also raised concerns about organizations asking, "How safe is cloud ?"
- The cloud hybrid architecture of Lambert Consulting architecture will give your organization options for where specific types of data are stored while providing you with secure identity management options for seamless access.
- Hybrid SharePoint 2019 / Office 365 deployments also provide organizations with robust options for business intelligence (BI) initiatives, as the private side of the hybrid cloud will most likely already exist on the corporate network in your Active Directory (AD) forest, allowing BI Initiatives to securely access other business systems within the organization.
- Office 365 's Power BI capabilities also enable cloud -based data to get the robust, analytical reporting required that can be seamlessly federated through Microsoft Azure Active Directory, a REST-based service that provides identity management, to your on-premises data to allow you to architect and customize the security model that will work best for your organization.
