OneDrive for Business with its integration into Office 365 Groups and SharePoint has provided the necessary tools to bring various legacy workflows into a new and updated process that then allows greater end user adoption because nothing has been left behind.
reach out often to microsoft. the FastTrack program is great
intergration into the office suite
sync client problems.
nothing reallly, it was my expectations or lack of knowledge on thier roadmap that caused issues.
waited for a few more feature so end users didn't get jostled with new versions and deprecated features.

The product rolls out great new features. But turns them on by default and if we aren't aware of a feature update / change, to get it disabled in time, users start using it before we have a chance to evaluate it. Just wish new features were rolled out as disabled by default or some global setting that could be changed.
If it's hard to trickle change through the organization, try to faciliate a phase / long term strategy to shift what is done today, then incremental learnings for the users to start utilizing the platform in more productive ways. Do not expect your users to adopt the entire platform and all it has to offer in a short time frame.
The vision for sharing and productivity with things like Delve delivers the feeling of more collaboration than what was done prior with onpremise solutions.
Sharing files is extremely easy
Offered more global controls of features instead of having to manage them at the individual user level.
Focus on training our users about the changes to their current jobs, then focusing later about the benefits of the solution, e.g. sharing capabilities.

Its not quite ready for prime time, but is improving rapidly.
Test Microsoft's promises and be realistic about their actual capabilities.
It has the future potential to meet the needs and is fully baked into Office 365.
Just not as robust as competition.
Had a more robust product.
Don't promise a Dropbox replacement.
Not as good a product as Box or Dropbox.
Typical Microsoft support and service options are available.
Integration with Office 365 is a huge plus.

Overall the product works very well. At times there tend to be synchronization errors between end devices and the Office 365 service.
Don't assume people will come running to use this service. A strong awareness and training campaign will be needed to be successful.
Flexibility in file sharing with PC's and mobile devices (iPads and iPhones). This tool helps make the iPad a very functional computer.
The file syncing issues.
Make us aware of the challenges other companies were facing in an up-front and proactive manner.
Provide stronger training to our staff up front to help drive faster adoption of this service.
Implementation was smooth, but the end-user adoption was behind what we had expected.

Our Microsoft sales representative had a bully mentality and we feel that they misled us on this product knowing that Microsoft was set to change it significantly shortly after the purchase. They did and they disrupted intended functionality for our use-case.
Beware when dealing with Microsoft, unless you have a robust Sharepoint installation your OneDrive. Features are considerably limited and many do not work as advertised even with Sharepoint installed.
Came with O365, not impressed with any other aspects.
A lack of enterprise functionality and rigid/limited scope of capabilities. Sales process also was very poor experience.
Worked with us as a partner rather than as a target for making quota in their sales.
Avoid Microsoft solutions that seem too good to be true. Go with best of breed when possible. Consult professionals on near future changes coming to products.

The product really met our needs to eliminate the risk associated with ShadowIT.
Do the research, but more importantly make sure information is not escaping the organization.
Ease of use and integration with the Windows OS.
Implement this sooner.
Very happy with the product capabilities of One Drive.
Microsoft fast track and support is excellent for Onedrive.
Easy to deploy, and integrates well with Microsoft Windows and Office 365.
