SharePoint – leveraging the benefits (Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes, London)

There are hundreds of thousands of SharePoint deployments in the world and most of these have not utilised its full potential and benefits. Many of these organisations have implemented SharePoint and yet have not improved their processes or achieved the benefits originally planned for.

SharePoint can start as a free service or product – it is therefore easily adopted as the solution to collaboration and BI problems by companies, without real planning as to how to progress and develop the application. At this event, Microsoft talks about the latest SharePoint cloud offering and all the real benefits that can come from a planned deployment. We are also joined by an end user company, with experience of managing a SharePoint deployment, together with a services company, who discuss what is practical and how to approach SharePoint projects.

This event is for companies who are looking at the problem of collaboration and BI, who may already have SharePoint but want to know what is possible and how they should plan for a successful deployment of SharePoint.

Venue: Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes, London

108 Baker Street, London W1U 6LJ
