I’m Joanne Klein, founder of NexNovus, a Microsoft 365 Consulting company, and a 5-time Microsoft MVP in Office Apps & Services. What this really means is I spend my time working with customers on key strategic areas inside Microsoft 365 and sharing my knowledge with the larger technical community.

One of my specialties is SharePoint site and information architecture since I believe it to be the critical underpinning to any well-governed and compliant SharePoint environment (so much so that I wrote an eBook about it!). 

Speaking of compliance, I also focus on the Microsoft 365 features built to help organizations protect, retain, and defensibly dispose of their unstructured content now being produced at an exponential rate. This is an important shift for organizations and information workers to make in the modern workplace. I have substantial practical experience in Microsoft 365 helping customers make this shift.  

Please check out my starting guide where I share some of my lessons learned while working with customers in Microsoft Purview.

I write about these areas and more on this blog.

When I’m not “SharePointing” (yes, it’s a verb), I rejuvenate with road trips in my sporty car, hiking, and any sport with a paddle. And of course, a great latte.

Welcome to my blog.
