Shyam Oza, Senior Product Manager, AvePoint
This session gives attendees a blueprint for navigating which cloud deployment option is best suited to house their respective Microsoft SharePoint infrastructures. The session will also explain governance and compliance considerations to help determine whether an “all in”, hybrid, or an on-premises cloud approach is best, as well as provide best practices on how to implement the architecture that best meets attendees’ specific business goals.
10am – 10:55am Successful SharePoint Administration
John Peluso, Vice President of Product Management, AvePoint
This session will discuss strategies and tools for successful SharePoint administration and governance. Organizations worldwide need to be able to collaborate from anywhere, anytime in order to enable their employees to be as productive as possible. To support this, organizations must construct an information architecture that is easy to use while providing the reliability and security necessary to mitigate risk of downtime, data breach, or other policy violations. This session will walk through scenarios where AvePoint – combined with a solid data governance plan – can help you enforce the security, management, retention, and storage policies you desire for your SharePoint deployment.
11am – 11:55am Optimizing and Extending SharePoint Storage
Rebecca Wang, Product Manager, AvePoint
Proper architecture design and intelligent storage management are critical to a successful SharePoint implementation. During this session, we will first discuss how to build an efficient and scalable SharePoint architecture based upon your organization’s unique business objectives, usage patterns, deployment size, and distribution. We will then review strategies for SharePoint storage optimization through intelligent content lifecycle management, automated Binary Large Object (BLOB) offloading, and migration-free SharePoint management of legacy data stores such as file shares.
