For the 7th(!) year in a row Tony Byrne and I have the honor of co-chairing the SharePoint Symposium. This year it will be held on November 6-7 in Washington DC.
The SharePoint Symposium aims to be something very different, a conference on the topic of Microsoft SharePoint that focuses on strategy. Whether you already have SharePoint in your organization or are looking to acquire it, you will encounter no sales pitches here.
This year we have some exciting new speakers including:
Craig St. Claire, Intranet Manager, HOK
Susan S. Hanley, President, Susan Hanley LLC
Lawrence Hart, Content Management Strategist
We'll also have some favorites from previous SharePoint Symposiums including:
MaryGael Timberlake, Findability Leader, Ernst & Young, LLP
Stephanie Lemieux, President & Principal Consultant, Dovecot Studio
Shawn Shell, Vice President, U.S. Microsoft Platform Practice, Hitachi Consulting
Jill Hannemann, Director of Advisory Services, Portal Solutions
Rob Koplowitz, Vice President, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research
Hugh McKellar, Chair, SharePoint Symposium & Editor-in-Chief KMWorld, KMWorld Magazine
These true industry experts will lead you through the pros and cons of SharePoint in practice, with clear advice for your strategic decision-making. From managing large, enterprise-wide installations, to considering Cloud alternatives and add-on technologies, all the conference sessions will draw from real-life experience and best practices from leading practioners.
This year's topics will include:
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
