IT PRO: Topics include: setting up and managing SharePoint farms, upgrading to SharePoint 2016, setting up hybrid cloud/on-premises implementations, backup and recovery, integrations, authentication and authorization, storage and virtualization, and more!
INFORMATION WORKERS / POWER USERS: These sessions are geared to business users who are looking to SharePoint for document storage and management, search, and reporting, as well as working with lists, libraries and forms. SharePoint also enables collaboration through Team Sites, User Profiles and through tools such as Yammer and OneDrive for Business. Power users looking to create their own simple SharePoint applications or manipulate metadata and content would benefit from sessions on the new PowerApps and other low-code solutions for creating workflows, dashboards and more!
ARCHITECTS: Systems architects need to ensure that SharePoint is configured in a way that maximizes its value, whether for business intelligence, video, top performance, or even scaleability. Will your SharePoint be in the cloud, on-premises, or in a hybrid setup? Information architects need to make sure that SharePoint documents are labeled correctly using metadata when stored for efficient discovery and retrieval, to make sure workflows can be created in the most direct way, and much more.
BUSINESS DECISION MAKERS: If you're at SPTechCon, you've either already made the decision to use SharePoint, or you're looking for information to see if it's a fit for your business. Decide how SharePoint can be strategic within your organization, if upgrading is right for your company, if you need to be on-premises or in the cloud, and on how to get your employees to use SharePoint once you've adopted it.
