Understanding The New Role of SharePoint and Office 365 In Your Digital Workplace – COLDWATER SOFTWARE/INGRAM MICRO

2:50pm t0 3:20pm

Intranets have been around for a long time. Many organizations are looking at Mobile, Social, Employee Cloud Storage and other aspects of the digital work-place that go beyond traditional SharePoint intranets. As SharePoint evolves and other services like SkyDrive, Yammer, and Lync become more integrated, a more inclusive assessment is needed to plan your Digital Workplace. IngramMicro started with an intranet assessment project and as feedback from executives and different parts of the business came in, the project evolved into a digital workplace assessment. It is believed that this type of assessment better reflects the future of SharePoint intranets. This session will cover the assessment process used to create a digital workplace roadmap along with a discussion about the related challenges.

In this session you will learn how to:
• Discuss the digital workplace with key stakeholders in your business
• Determine which assessments make sense for your company
• Understand how Microsoft is evolving SharePoint and Office 365
• See how a roadmap can drive momentum and ROI around your digital workplace
