SharePoint Symposium: Everything You Wanted to Know
9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Tony Byrne, Founder, Real Story Group

This full-day intensive and interactive workshop by an experienced industry analyst does not assume that you should, or should not, use SharePoint. It begins with a critical evaluation detailing SharePoint’s strengths and weaknesses culled from customer experiences and hands-on testing. Through presentations and discussion, the workshop helps you figure out how, where, when, and why to use SharePoint and reviews how well SharePoint “fits” into different types and sizes of enterprises with different business objectives. In addition to tips, techniques, strategies, and multiple case studies and real-world examples, the workshop offers candid, independent advice for both business and technology leaders.

Who Should Attend:

  • Project managers and leaders starting a SharePoint project who want an honest assessment of the platform’s potential value, as well as “gotchas” and costs
  • Strategic decision makers who want to understand what boundaries to place around SharePoint and where key gaps remain in the platform
  • Technology selection teams who want to compare SharePoint to other technology alternatives
  • Systems integrators and consultants who want to know where SharePoint excels and where it doesn’t
