Are you even aware of what the folks who are managing your SharePoint environment do to protect your data? These questions, and many others, are what we will be answering within this session. We will cover the questions you should be asking when you create your own DR plans, as well as the questions you should be asking your cloud partners about theirs.

This discussion will introduce the Best Practices framework that will allow your SharePoint administrator to configure SharePoint and SQL Server for quick content recovery minimizing the downtime and providing shorter yet achievable Service Level Agreements (SLA’s).

DEV304 - Solid Foundations: Building Solutions in an Earthquake-Prone SharePoint Area

SharePoint Online (SPO) has been with us for a number of years now, and adoption of the platform continues on an upward trajectory. At the same time, Microsoft has committed to supply SharePoint in an on-premises server form for the foreseeable future. So what happens when you’re tasked with building your next SharePoint-centric solution and the selection of on-prem or cloud can’t be nailed down? Or worse, what if you’re told to build a solution that will start out on-prem and then go to the cloud sometime down the road? Would you be able design and build something that meets your users’ needs without unnecessary worry and the potential migration risks? Do you know enough about the options, benefits, and disadvantages of the various tools and approaches at your disposal to confidently make informed decisions and avoid instant obsolescence? In this session, we’ll look at what’s currently at your disposal, including full-blown development techniques and those that are friendlier to those who might consider themselves “citizen developers”. We’ll build an understanding of the decision points and criteria that might suggest or preclude the use of one or more tools/techniques, and we’ll take a look at some approaches to assembling and creating SharePoint solutions that you may not have considered or even been aware of. Attendees of this session will leave with the know-how and understanding to confidently design and assemble their next SharePoint-centric solution in an “earthquake-resistant” fashion.
