November 19th, 2014, brought an end to the annual SharePoint Connect 2014 conference in Amsterdam, Netherlands. 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. Attendees such as IT pro’s, business users and developers joined together to share a dialogue about the most recent updates, and best practices in SharePoint. The agenda of this year’s SharePoint conference consisted of a series of sessions about Integration, Cloud, Web Development, Mobile Apps, Social, Hybrid, Migration, and much more.
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.
As the SharePoint community continues to evolve, Intlock has adapted their Intranet analytics solution, CardioLog Analytics, to also keep up with all of the new features and roadmaps existing within the industry including SharePoint, Yammer, and Sitrion. As an organization that always has its sights on the new frontier, Intlock was thrilled to be included in this innovative two day event, surrounded by leaders in the SharePoint world that share a similar vision for improving and advancing the SharePoint experience.
