CM101 - Why (and How) my SP2013 IA needs to be redesigned for the future?

For nearly 2 decades we've created a structure of SharePoint site collections and subsites that allowed us to segregate users and elevate privileges without negative repercussion on other users and content areas. However, since the release of SP2016, and in some cases SP2013, Microsoft has shifted gears towards a flatter infrastructure, with new site collections being created left-right-and-center - and admins were left in a scramble to keep things locked down. This presentation is going to walk you through how to evaluate your current IA, suggestions on how to redesign it with a nod towards mission-driven design, and how to ensure your organization is ready for the next upgrade BEFORE the time comes, be it SP2016, 2019, or Office 365.

CM103 - Reclaiming SharePoint: How to reel in an overgrown implementation

SharePoint is organic. File-based SharePoint sites grow exponentially, consuming more and more storage space and making it difficult for users to find what they need. Governance plans designed to steer SharePoint's utilization tarnish over time, discouraging users from adopting the platform. This session outlines the reasons why SharePoint environments become overgrown and under-utilized and provides practical guidance on how you can assess your implementation and create a revitalization plan. We'll also review several real-world SharePoint turnaround stories, highlighting the challenges faced and the methods taken to revive user adoption. Whether you have a "green-field" implementation with no formal governance in place or have a faded governance model that is no longer working, you'll leave this session with proven techniques for engaging your key constituents and driving change.

CANCELLED - ONE302 - I didn't know you could do that with OneDrive!

OneDrive for Business is the Microsoft cloud storage service that comes with Office 365 or SharePoint Server. With OneDrive, you can securely store all your files in one place, share them with others, and get to them from anywhere. But did you know that OneDrive can sync SharePoint document libraries using the new and improved OneDrive sync client on both Windows and Mac OS X? Or you can move and copy files quickly and easily with metadata between OneDrive and SharePoint? Or that you can securely share content with users both internally and externally to your organization? How would you like to be able to work with a colleague on the same file, at the same time, in real time? Or perhaps you'd like to use a workflow for content in your OneDrive? Join me in this interactive, hands-on session where I demonstrate the new features that you should be aware of when working with OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online.
