Summer 2015 speaking engagements

Upon returning from this year's hugely successful SharePoint Saturday event in the Netherlands on June 6th 2015, I’m really pleased to be speaking at two community events in London in the coming weeks.

Summer 2015 speaking engagements

The first is the SharePoint User Group UK event hosted in London next Thursday the 25th June. Here, I’ll be presenting a session named “Next Generation Hybrid Search with the Cloud Search Service Application”

The session description is as follows:

A Hybrid SharePoint environment is composed of an on-premises deployment of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 and a SharePoint Online tenant in Microsoft Office 365. A Hybrid Search approach enables end users to get and view search results across all environments. In this session, learn about the new Hybrid Search Crawl Appliance, now enabling a unified index approach across multiple content sources including but not limited to SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online.

A few weeks later, I’m really excited to be speaking at the inaugural SharePoint Saturday London event. I’ll be presenting the following session “SharePoint and Office 365 Hybrid: A Real World Scenario”

The session description is as follows:

Consider the following scenario: Employees of a large organisation use SharePoint Online for the majority of their workloads such as OneDrive for Business, Team Site collaboration etc., perfect for sales guys on the move. However the organisation still has investments on-premises for Line of Business systems to manage customer and sales data. For the sales guys that process new work orders and register new clients, they want to be able to do this in the same SharePoint Online portal that they do everything else. Attend this session to understand how organisations facing this challenge can provide employees on the move with a way to update and find this Line of Business data hosted on-premises using SharePoint Hybrid capabilities. Understand the challenges and solutions today using SharePoint 2013 and what we can look forward to in SharePoint 2016.

In both sessions, I’m really excited that I am going to be able to demonstrate some of the new SharePoint Hybrid capabilities that were unveiled at the Microsoft Ignite conference in Chicago earlier this month. BrightStarr are privileged to be on the TAP (Technology Adoption Program) for Hybrid Search where we’ve been exploring the massive improvements that will be coming later this year to unify the search experience across Office 365 and On-premises deployments.

Hope to see many of you there at these great events!
