SharePoint Symposium 2014

The SharePoint Symposium aims to be something very different, a conference on the topic of Microsoft SharePoint that does not proselytize. Whether you already have SharePoint in your organization or are looking to acquire it, you will encounter no sales pitches here.

What you will experience are sessions led by true industry experts that will lead you through the pros and cons and strengths and weaknesses of SharePoint in practice. From managing (and avoiding) the threat of sprawl and viral growth, to considering Cloud alternatives and add-on technologies, all the conference sessions will draw from real-life experience and best practices from leading practitioners.

  • SharePoint Today: It's past and future
  • Lessons learned from the SharePoint trenches
  • Plugging SharePoint's gaps: Strategic Alternatives
  • SharePoint in a mobile and social world
  • 2013 Migration and Maturity Strategies
  • Office 365 Pros and Cons
  • Industry Analyst Debate
