The Changing World of Business Productivity
Steve Fox

The world of productivity and collaboration is changing. More cloud. More data. More services. More devices. What does it all mean, and how will it impact the way in which you do your job. In this keynote, we'll look at some of the key changes that are happening now and in the near future in the world of productivity and the impact these changes will have on the world of SharePoint.

Automating SharePoint Governance and Management
Dan Holme

Are you tired of click-click-clicking through the user interface every time a user needs a new site? Are you concerned that administrators and users are not complying to your governance policies when they deploy new sites, lists, and libraries? Are you unsure whether security permissions are consistently and correctly applied? Do you want to empower the business with self-service capabilities, but you can't trust them to do the right thing? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then this session is for you. In this advanced governance and management session, SharePoint MVP Dan Holme unveils a framework for automating SharePoint administrative tasks to enforce your service and information management policies. You will take away a set of tools that you can apply and extend to create a secure, proxied model for SharePoint administration. The session assumes you have some understanding of Windows PowerShell, which is used to power the scripts Dan shares. But even if you aren't a PowerShell expert, you will be able to take the tools Dan gives you and put them to work in your enterprise.
