ECM 104 - Wednesday, August 19th 3:00 pm
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 through 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 a compelling Intranet
- A framework for Intranet implementation including Strategy, Vision, Information Architecture, Change Management and 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
SRC 201 - Thursday, August 20th at 10:00 am
Search in SharePoint 2013 provide a unique opportunity to both find content but also target content to users to provide many new and exciting capabilities. The business value of being able to now present content in real time to users based on their needs can provide some amazing capabilities for Intranet, Knowledge Management, Collaboration and general search scenarios in SharePoint 2013.
In this session we will look at some of the possible quick wins that search offers, a selection of use cases and examples, and how to best leverage search to make a tangible impact in your organization. Be prepared to be amazed at how powerful these capabilities can be but also find out the caveats involved in creating a search solution that works.

SpTechCon includes more than 80 classes that allow you to put together your own custom SharePoint and Office 365 training experience.
