This fall you can catch Bonzai Intranet speaking and sponsoring various SharePoint Saturday events. For those who are not familiar with SharePoint Saturday, it is an educational day for SharePoint end users, power users, architects, and many other professionals in the SharePoint space. Speaking sessions are put on by respected MVP’s and SharePoint professionals with the goal to share knowledge within the SP community.
Bonzai is proud to be speaking and Gold Sponsor at SharePoint Saturday Toronto:
SharePoint Saturday Toronto
At SharePoint Saturday Toronto Bonzai will be participating as the Gold Sponsor at the Canadian Microsoft Head Quarters in Mississauga, Ontario on Saturday September 19th. We will also be sending three of our very own to give speaking sessions on their area of expertise.
Creating an Intranet on SharePoint involves a unique combination of people, identifying business needs and leveraging the platform effectively. Organisations that fail to understand the business and how to leverage SharePoint to surface key business information and enable processes ultimately does not deliver the potential value that an intranet can provide. In this session, learn from the mistakes of other organisations as well as the practices that can deliver real results within a minimal investment. Join Michal as we delve into why SharePoint has been so successful but has yet under delivered its promises to many organizations though a combination of case studies, stories and personal experience.
This session will cover:
- The functional areas within the SharePoint platform that can be leveraged to create an compelling Intranet
- A framework for Intranet implementation including Strategy, Vision, Information Architecture, Change Management & Governance
- How Office 365 can alter your Intranet strategy
- Common Intranet capabilities that can be created such as employee directories, forms portals, news and events
- A range of quick and easy SharePoint specific examples to help improve your Intranet
Trying to figure out why SharePoint isn't working as expected isn't as overwhelming as it looks on the surface. SharePoint is built on top of familiar Microsoft products and technologies and comes with a lot of out of the box tools to help troubleshoot even the most difficult of issues. And when that doesn't work there are some great (free!) third party tools to aid you in your quest to fixing a farm.
In this session we'll look at how IT pros and developers can troubleshoot any SharePoint farm without having to resort to exorcisms or Microsoft Support.
There are a number of approaches for building and deploying forms in a SharePoint environment. Regardless of your chosen technology, there are a number of considerations to keep in mind in order to build usable, functional forms. This session will outline effective design strategies to ensure your forms are gathering effective information from your users.
If you can’t make SharePoint Saturday Toronto, Bonzai has also been confirmed as Platinum SharePoint Saturday sponsors for SPS Redmond on November 21st. Blog Post coming soon closer to the event!
