Mobility Showdown: App vs. Web and Other Controversial Topics

Speaker Joe Herres

According to Gartner, 70 percent of mobile professionals will conduct their work on a personal smart device by 2018. One of the main obstacles for businesses moving towards this “Bring Your Own Device” mobile strategy is supporting the plethora of devices and operating systems available to their employees. Joe will examine two approaches to mobilizing SharePoint features in a BYOD environment: traditional, native applications, and HTML 5 Web apps. Each approach has its strengths. Native applications often have increased functionality, while Web apps are more cost-effective to deploy and maintain. Find out which approach is best for your organization in this in-depth dive into SharePoint mobility.

Breaking Bad SharePoint

Speaker Mark Miller

Breaking Bad has become a cultural phenomenon over the past 5 years because of the universality of the characters and our ability to identify with them. We’ve seen each of the main characters playing their roles not only in the TV series, but within the SharePoint community itself. In this session, we’ll investigate how Walt and Jesse would handle the problems of creating the best blue SharePoint, while taking Saul’s business advice and utilizing Mike for backup. Where does Gus Fring come in? What about Hank or Skyler? Are Badger and Skinny Pete the ultimate end users? Take my advice: Tread lightly. This is a session not to be missed.
