SharePoint Fest Chicago 2017

Reading Time: 2 minutes

JoanneKleinI’m excited to announce I’ll be heading to Chicago as a featured speaker for the SharePoint Fest conference from December 5-8, 2017.

The keynote will be delivered by none other than Dan Holme on “Accelerating your digital transformation with SharePoint and Microsoft 365”.

In addition to two sessions I’ll be delivering, I’ll be on the Ask the Experts panel on Thursday evening. I’ll be available to answer questions in the ECM subject area (or as it is now called in Office 365, Content Services).

Here are details on my 2 sessions:

Navigating thru the Mess of a Shared Network Drive Migration to SharePoint

When: December 7 from 11:20AM to 12:30PM

Synopsis: Whether your organization has been using SharePoint for awhile or just starting down that road, many organizations still have large shared network drives holding content that could rightfully belong in SharePoint. Migrating this content into SharePoint is a challenging task and one that many of us are being asked to do.

Come to this session and we’ll talk about reasons why migrating some of this content is a good thing, proven methods for making it happen, common pitfalls and ways to avoid them and how to help end-users make the “shift” from network drives to SharePoint. As it turns out, not quite as easy as you would think.

This session applies to both SharePoint On-Premises and SharePoint Online.

Information Management/Data Governance: From Theory to Practice in an Office 365 World

When: December 8 from 8:30AM to 9:40AM

Synopsis: What does Information Management and Data Governance mean within the context of O365? What are some of the tools to manage it?

Organizations need to empower employees to reap the benefits of new collaboration services in the digital workplace, but they can’t compromise the security, compliance and protection of corporate assets while doing it. Capabilities are being rolled out to help organizations keep both managed and unmanaged content secure and compliant throughout O365.

This session covers setting organizations up for success from an Information Management perspective without hindering usage and adoption of O365. Discussion covers AIP, DLP, and new Retention.

Make sure you stop by either of my sessions and say Hi if you’ll be there – I always like to meet new people and talk about issues you’re experiencing in my areas of focus.

[Update December 2017] I had a great time at this event. The SharePoint Fest conferences are always extremely well-run – I highly recommend them! Both of my sessions were well-attended and I had lots of great questions. Links to my presentations are below.
