It seems like only yesterday that we were getting ready to launch AIP. After a bit of a splash at Microsoft Ignite, on October 4, 2016, AIPmoved to GAand was quickly followed up with a DecemberPreview. We looked to operate at a fast pace, so the December releasemoved to GAin February 2017 which to me was the beginning on when we really started to see adoption move in earnest (and it has continued to accelerate all year!).
An ask we heard loud and clear from you was for more guidance, and so began theReady, Set, Protect!Series which was designed to give you a set of guidelines and approaches as you worked through your deployment and adoption of an information protection taxonomy. We even did anadoption and deployment session at Ignitewhere one of our customers joined us to share their approach towards label taxonomy. Based on our experiences at Microsoft, we also developed anadoption guidethat you can use to get started with information protection in your company easily and quickly.
