Birmingham, West Midlands, United Kingdom, 2012/10/30 - With conferences focusing on the technical aspects of SharePoint, we felt the need for an event that speaks to businesses about the benefits of SharePoint and how to make the most of the platform. We've lined up top user organisations as speakers.
One of the great things about SharePoint is the vibrant and vocal community that has grown up around it. Members of this community spend many hours a month (often in their own time) supporting and championing the SharePoint cause. They dedicate their time to helping clients and enthusiasts get the most out of this often complex and hugely powerful platform.
Much of this community is technically focused, consisting of developers and those not afraid of firing up ‘SharePoint Designer’ to edit some XML or CSS. As a result sometimes the business user can be slightly forgotten. These are people who want to deploy and customize SharePoint, but don't have a degree in C# or a history of database administration. We thought it was about time these people had a conference dedicated to their needs.
So in March next year we are running a SharePoint conference in Amsterdam especially for business users. Finally, a jargon free event for users who want to make the most of their SharePoint platform! Running from the 20-22 March 2013 and supported by Microsoft, the conference is intended for those that want to deploy, evaluate, and customize SharePoint to help run a more efficient and integrated business.
The three day event will be largely non-technical, and is designed to allow business professionals to hear from like-minded users. Topics covered will include:
● How business users have moulded SharePoint to their requirements;
● How to realise the business benefits of SharePoint;
● How users have made the most of their SharePoint environment.
We will have a great range of speakers and case studies at the show, including:
● BNP Paribas
● GE Oil & Gas
● Aviva Employee Collaboration
● and many more.
There will be a wide variety of events and workshops during the conference. We will be running ‘best practice workshops’, hosted by leading organisations, to demonstrate exactly how users can maximise return from their SharePoint environments, new techniques to use, and costly mistakes to avoid.
