Presenting at Microsoft Ignite 2017

For those who will be attending the sold out Microsoft Ignite event in Orlando, Florida later this month, I’ll be presenting again this year! Very excited to be back for my 3rd speaking opportunity at Ignite. Over the next couple weeks, I’ll probably re-tweet some of my content from past events as a warm-up.

The Microsoft Community coming together at MSIgnite 2017If you’re interested in Hybrid SharePoint, you can see my one official session “The State of the Hybrid SharePoint Ecosystem” (#THR2055) on Tuesday, September 26th at 10:50am.  This session will share detailed results from the Hybrid SharePoint survey (which you can download here) that was conducted by CollabTalk and the Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University. This research was sponsored by Microsoft and a number of leading ISVs and SIs, including PixelMill, B&R Business Solutions, AvePoint, Crow Canyon Software, tyGraph, and others.

In this short-but-sweet theater session, I’ll walk the audience through our survey logic, share anecdotal feedback from some of the one-on-one interviews conducted with customers, MVPs, and Microsoft during the primary research, and outline some of the key takeaways for customers, as well as ISV/SI partners, who are interested in learning how best to leverage hybrid SharePoint solutions going forward.

If you’re interested in discussing the topic ahead of time, be sure to visit the related page on the Microsoft Tech Community site, where you

can ask questions, I’ll respond, and following the event — you’ll find my slides there.

Throughout the remainder of the show, I’ll be capturing video and podcast recordings with attendees, and participating in Monday’s live show as one of Microsoft’s guest reporters. If you see me set up and recording interviews, and would like to grab some screen time — don’t be shy! Come on over and let’s chat.

Over the next few days, I’ll be blogging on some of the other Hybrid related sessions, so be sure to watch this space. Really looking forward to this event, and seeing more folks from the community! See you in Orlando!
