Presentation Topic: More and more people are moving to SharePoint online

Organizations are assessing how they manage current SharePoint needs, while also considering a transition to the cloud. Sound familiar? Then come to this week’s session to learn how that transition will change the way you manage content, permissions, and administration and governance policies.
We will cover:
• Key administration and governance considerations as you move assets from on-premises to SharePoint Online
• A comparison of reporting, auditing, and governance between the platforms
• An overview of transitioning SharePoint to the cloud

Speaker Bio: Metalogix Speaker – Ryan Patrick Tully

Presentation Topic #2: What We Learned at Ignite!
Whether you couldn’t attend this year’s Ignite Conference or just couldn’t attend all the sessions you wanted (an impossible task!) we’ve assembled a panel to review the highlights from the conference and share any good gossip from SharePointLand. This is a loose Q&A, so please bring your own insights if you attended as well as all the burning questions you would have asked if you’d been there. Ryan Tully will be joining us for this panel.

Presentation Topic #1: SharePoint Governance and the Role of the Site OwnerMetalogix – Metalogix

A functional governance plan is essential for a SharePoint farm, but often times the site owners are not accounted for. With farms growing larger it is becoming more important to involve the users who actually own the content as it is impractical to think that IT should know and understand all of the content on each site. The session will focus on key components to a SharePoint governance plan but with a focus on the role of site owners and content owners.
