SPTechCon 2015 Takeaways:

  1. SharePoint User Adoption is still a challenge many organizations face

    Just because an organization has deployed SharePoint, and its employees have signed up for the portal, doesn’t necessarily mean that the portal is being utilized to its full potential. Many organizations invest large amounts of time and money into deploying and maintaining their portals, so it’s important that the users are gaining the most from them. User adoption is key for ensuring that the ROI of the portal is being actualized. Analytics are an important method for measuring adoption, and thus determining what steps should be taken to improve user engagement and adoption levels.

  2. SharePoint Decision Makers are at a Crossroad: On Prem V. Cloud
    Many organizations now are facing a crossroad they may not have foreseen. To remain with an on-premises solution, or to migrate to the cloud with SharePoint Online. Although many organizations are still sticking to their guns, and remaining with their on-premises solution, many have taken on a new perspective when it comes to migrating to the cloud. Analytics are key for planning, testing, and implementing the appropriate tools for the Migration process.
  3. Social is still buzzing
    Integrating Social into the Enterprise is becoming not just trendy, but necessary to many organizational decision makers. They have indeed began gaining enthusiasm regarding Yammer, SharePoint Social, Sitrion, and other platforms. By generating reports for Enterprise Social Networks, organizations can gain the upper hand in knowing exactly what’s going on within their platforms. The overall user experience within the social platform can be enriched with the use of analytics, and can help organizations reach their platform goals.

 

The event itself was a great way to prepare for the Microsoft Ignite Conference that we will attend this May in Chicago.

The annual SharePoint Connect conference is a 3-day international conference, and this year’s event featured a diverse group of attendees representing all segments of the SharePoint community.

Intlock was pleased to be a part of such a forward-thinking conference, with a unique  opportunity to hear from Keynote speakers such as Chris Johnson on “The Road to Office 365 and the Future of Cloud Development, as well as Christian Buckley who spoke about “SharePoint Social Integration: Good, Better, Best”. Microsoft is pioneering the way to integrate social into the overall business strategy of organizations, and Christian Buckley touched on these very subjects as he walked through the levels of SharePoint and Yammer integration available today. Buckley provided real world examples and guidance, driving the point home when emphasizing the need to make informed choices in order to develop the right social strategy per various organizations.

When presenting CardioLog Analytics, attendees quickly saw how they can drive collaboration within the portal thanks to the deep analytic reports, as well as the engagement and survey tools offered. On numerous occasions, the value of a robust measurement strategy was presented by Intlock, as well as many other speakers, professionals, and attendees. One of the first steps in managing a SharePoint portal is acquiring data-specific analytics, and this theme rang true throughout the course of the conference.
