The shift from traditional ‘document management and information push’ Intranets to more socio-collaborative technologies continues to accelerate, as organisations embrace new Social Business Models. Microsoft has cemented its place as one of the key players in the enterprise technology space and is well positioned to influence greater productivity and increased value through more seamless integration between Sharepoint and Office365.
But end users are often caught in the middle of these strategic changes and are left confused or remain disengaged from these new collaborative tools. They perceive Sharepoint as a “Swiss Army Knife” solution, built for flexibility but requiring lots of effort to make it do what you want it to do, rather than an out-of-the box solution. The first speaker at this seminar, Nathaniel Suda, explored Microsoft’s overall direction of travel and what changes to working practices can be anticipated over the next 2–3 years, as organisations upgrade their Sharepoint and Office products. The second speaker, Cerys Hearsey, discussed some examples of where Sharepoint/Office365 is working well and provided some ‘best practice’ tips to aid usability and encourage engagement.
Nathaniel Suda is the only consultant in the UK to simultaneously hold a strategic advisory position at Microsoft UK in both Business Intelligence and SharePoint, on Advanced 365.
Cerys Hearsey is the Lead Consultant and MD at Post*Shift.
