Best of Both Worlds: Implementing SharePoint & Office 365 Hybrid+

Presenter: Liam Cleary, Microsoft MVP
Over the past few years, Microsoft has invested heavily in Office 365 services and components and less into on-premises SharePoint. However that does not mean there has been no innovation for the on-premises platform. With the investments made within Office 365 and then Hybrid for SharePoint, the best of both worlds can now be had. Combining the power of cloud services with on-premises SharePoint will allow your end users to seamlessly work between the two platforms. Sharing components such as search, taxonomy and even user profiles between the two means the end user experience can be significantly enhanced and new features can be used without the need for them to be rolled into the on-premises solution. In this session, we will look at what a Hybrid environment looks like, how to configure a Hybrid environment, as well as look at the services and components that can be used right now between the two platforms.

Improving Your Corporate Governance Through SharePoint+

Presenter: Scott Wisniewski, Managing Director
Does your company use multiple GRC solutions across the enterprise?  Are any of these tools really used to govern your business, or just to document risks and controls for specific groups?  The GRC technology market has a plethora of tools to choose from to help organizations manage GRC programs.   But these rarely come together in an enterprise workflow and reporting layer that truly helps the company govern the business and manage risk.  During this session we’ll share real client stories and demonstrate examples of how organizations are using SharePoint for Regulatory Management, Internal Audit, Vendor Management, Risk Management and IT Governance.   We’ll also discuss how SharePoint can overlay existing GRC applications to truly embed governance into the business.  In addition, we’ll discuss the benefits (e.g. leveraging your existing IT infrastructure, intuitive user interface etc.) of using SharePoint to manage GRC and practical steps to consider when implementing SharePoint as part of your GRC ecosystem.
