Speaking at Microsoft Ignite #MSIgnite

It’s official, as of today, there are only 34 days until Microsoft’s biggest conference, Ignite!  As we lead up to the conference, there are so many exciting things happening, so if you have registered, I definitely recommend staying tuned to what’s going on when you log into the conference site.  The schedule builder will be coming online soon, and if the last SharePoint conference is any indication, there will probably be a lot of useful social tools on the site, so that we can get to know each other and the speakers before the conference even starts!  Also, I’m excited to announce that I’ll be presenting some sessions there!

Here are my three sessions:


1. MVP Panel:

SharePoint On-Premises, Online and Everything in Between

Speakers: Christian Buckley, Christopher McNulty, Dan Holme, Jennifer Ann Mason, Laura Rogers

Type: Best Practices

Audience: IT Influencers & Implementers

Topic: Deployment & Implementation

Imagine five great minds coming together to talk about Microsoft SharePoint across the board, be it within Microsoft Office 365, in Microsoft Azure, on-premises and certainly hybrid. Via a panel Q&A format, these MVP experts expose how online and hybrid improvements increase both deployment scenarios and value. This session is designed to help ITIs and ITDMs find the right cloud formula to deploy based on practical business and technical considerations. This is a must-not-miss session for any IT pro!


2. Breakout Session:

Driving User Adoption from a Technical Standpoint for SharePoint, Exchange and Office 365

Speakers: Laura Rogers, Lori Gowin

Type: Best Practices

Audience: IT Influencers & Implementers

Topic: Usage & Adoption

Good news, IT pros, there are useful technical configurations in the SharePoint administration console that will improve user satisfaction and increase productivity and adoption. Topics covered and demonstrated include defining user audiences, improving Microsoft Office integration, and managing available apps. This session uses real-world experience to help you define a specific action list that may be used to optimize user experience and drive user adoption.

 


3. Pre-Day session (Sunday):

End-to-End OneDrive for Business Planning, Deployment, Best Practices and Adoption Techniques

Speakers: Laura Rogers, Todd Klindt

Type: Pre-Day
(additional fee required)

Audience: IT Influencers & Implementers

Topic: Deployment & Implementation

This pre-day session covers IT planning and adoption considerations to properly deploy Microsoft OneDrive for Business. The topics include ways to synchronize your on-premises directory data to the cloud to achieve identity SSO (single sign-on); rollout of OneDrive for Business across your organization (training, apps, sync client); getting other Office 365 suite-level features running in conjunction with OneDrive for Business; and overall management for OneDrive for Business in production across all your users. The training, too, will cover numerous deployment scenarios especially hybrid.
