First Presentation Topic: Managing Change Control in SharePoint

In this session, Chris Chung (founder of Essention Group) will discuss SharePoint’s robust platform for delivering applications because it makes end users easily able to author applications. It is that very benefit that users can create some interesting challenges not present in traditional application development platforms. In this discussion, Chris will cover his experience and talk about better ways to handle application governance (how to limit, monitor and manage users’ access to the features in the application) and change management (how to effectively manage changes, upgrades, deployments, etc., and at the same time minimizing your risk). Having been in the field for a number of years, Chris will present what he’s seen at the implementation level and have an open forum discussion about how to specifically address issues.
