PEOPLE, PROCESSES, PROJECTS
We are in a period of great business and social transformation. While Borders bookstores were dying, Amazon went from selling books to selling everything under the sun. How can two competing companies achieve such diverse results during a recession? While airlines were losing money and going out of business, Southwest Airlines said it would not affect their business because they are in the “customer service” industry and that industry is doing GR8.
The common threads between these successful companies are business agility, a culture of transformation, and the ability to take advantage of emerging markets. On April 5th, Philadelphia will be the host city for one of the largest conferences dedicated to business and social transformation.
Please invite your social and business transformation leaders and the IT staff that will be responsible for designing and managing the IT solutions that will support your People, Processes and Projects.
SharePoint Conference Partner Selection
GR8 identifies the most relevant IT / business topics and then selects the most knowledgeable and experienced local, national and global Microsoft Partners to educate you and your staff on this topic.
GR8 SharePoint Conferences are unique from the perspective that none of the selected presenters are presales representatives from a 3rd party product company but rather proven consultants that have real-world experiences working with many SharePoint vendors and solutions. Each partner has been carefully chosen because of their vast experience and success at assisting customers achieve their business goals through the planning, design, deployment and management of the topic they are presenting.
GR8 conference presentations and session tracks are designed and delivered to meet the specific needs of your entire staff: Executives, Project Managers, IT Professionals and Developers.
Enterprise Search, Business Scorecard, Collaboration & Social Communities
If you reduced a company to just three core components, they would be: People, Processes and Projects. Executives will have the opportunity to learn from notable subject matter experts on People, Processes and Projects. Discover how SharePoint can accelerate a social and business transformation by improving business insight, collaboration, and business processes across the entire organization.
Project Manager / Executive Track
Delivering Information Anywhere, Anytime, on Any Device… within Budget
Microsoft SharePoint’s distributed architecture and propensity for organic grass-roots growth has contributed to its ease of adoption and popularity with business users. Without proper planning and governance an organization could face unexpected challenges. This track will provide guidance for setting policies, roles, responsibilities, and processes that guide, direct, and control how an organization's business divisions and IT teams cooperate to achieve business goals.
IT Professional Track
Designing, Managing, and Securing SharePoint
ITP sessions are primarily targeted at system administrators who design, deploy, and support SharePoint. Many developers may also share these responsibilities and will learn from these sessions. Experienced consultants will provide guidance on the best tools, and methods for creating, managing and securing an enterprise SharePoint infrastructure. The entire track will be delivered by Microsoft’s most proven and real-world experienced enterprise SharePoint system integration partners. We want to make it clear, that these sessions are not being delivered by a presales representative from a third party product.
Extending SharePoint’s Capabilities
SharePoint 2010 provides the business collaboration platform for developers to rapidly build solutions using familiar tools. There is a host of SharePoint Tools introduced into Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 that will simplify and enhance the capabilities for developers to build solutions on SharePoint.
