Office 365 Groups , Delve Analytics and Search–I’ll be speaking at Microsoft Ignite 2016


A couple of more weeks now and Ignite kicks off! I had a blast last year and I’m looking forward to see how this years event turns out as well as looking forward to hang out with new and old friends in the SharePoint community.

Here’s the breakdown of the three sessions I will be delivering – and if you’re going maybe I’m covering a topic you’re interested in.

Be more effective with Delve and Office Graph Analytics

THR2191 – 20 minutes - Wednesday, September 28, 2016 5:05 PM - 5:25 PM – Expo Theatre 3

Are you curious about how Delve Analytics and the information in the Microsoft Office Graph can make you more effective? Get a quick demo of the insights available out of the box in the different Office 365 plans and you might just end up more self conscious about how and who you work with.

Move search from on-premises SharePoint to the cloud: tips and tricks

THR3055 – 20 minutes - Thursday, September 29, 2016 1:35 PM - 1:55 PM – Expo Theatre 4

Going cloud means you have to analyze your on-premises setup and see what works in the cloud. This session covers some of the bumps you might encounter and show possible alternative roads to make sure the journey is successful. We touch on both moving content and search to the cloud, and the new Cloud Search Service Application for hybrid scenarios.

Learn about Office 365 Groups and how to use them

BRK2277 – 45 minutes - Friday, September 30, 2016 9:15 AM - 10:00 AM – C114
(Originally labeled as a panel discussion – but it will be a demo session)

Microsoft Office 365 Groups uses the best of breed functionality of many Office 365 services like e-mail and calendars from Outlook, files and OneNote from SharePoint and tasks from Planner. You can also create pages and lists with the recently announced team site attached to the group.

With all this functionality, where should you start and how can Office 365 Groups help your business?

The session gives an overview of what Office 365 Groups are, and will cover use cases like event handling, marketing planning, educational use as well as social media handling, where Office 365 Groups can be a good fit for your organization.
