Session Description
The DNA of Document and Records Management Success with SharePoint
Learning from over 100 Implementations. As many NZ organisations have discovered, getting Enterprise Content Management (ECM) working across an organisation is notoriously difficult. The analysis that formed this paper draws on our insights and knowledge from the experiences of over 100 organisations.  This includes the more than 50 implementations of document and records management that Information Leadership has been directly involved in, as well as many other implementations that Information Leadership has been exposed to. Six key themes emerged that Sarah and Ian will be sharing through lively, compelling and, at times, hair-raising stories about those organisations that have made it and the traps that those who are in the doldrums fall into.  Expect insights (and irksome déjà vu!) that you can apply to your project immediately! This paper explores the lifecycle of an implementation from preparation to selection, to project cutover to business as usual, or from preparation to an early death or need for a make-over.

I Feel the Love Again - Using Access 2013 and SharePoint 2013 Together
SharePoint 2013 and Access (along with the rest of Office 2013) have had an enormous amount of work done in this version and they work together beautifully. SharePoint 2013 is, to many, a web version of Access. Come and see Adam Cogan show you the many options available, including using SharePoint data in your Access solution  using Access to report on your SharePoint data  upsizing your access data to SharePoint and then continue with Access as the frontend upsizing your entire Access solution to SharePoint and then finish using Access as your platform. In addition, we will look at using SharePoint data in other Office applications.

Streamlining Business Processes Using SharePoint 2013
This session will focus on demonstrating how SharePoint 2013 can deliver genuine automation and efficiency to everyday business processes, with a clear and tangible return on investment. There will be very little PowerPoint content, but lots of live demonstrations using SharePoint 2013, in conjunction with some popular third-party solutions designed to take SharePoint to the next level. We'll focus on three real-world scenarios, including Accounts Payable, Human Resources and Mobile Workers; and will demonstrate how SharePoint can be used to distribute information, capture documents and details, manage data across and organisation and automate manual workflows. See how the latest advances in OCR, ICR and OMR can automate the extraction of valuable business data from documents and files – hard copy, faxed and electronic – and pass this data into SharePoint and other business applications. You’ll also see how automated workflows in SharePoint can be configured to "react" to this inbound data and schedule task, activities and processes based on the information received. The demonstrations will include automated processing and approval of inbound invoices, capture and management of new employee contracts and the capture, processing and management of mobile data capture forms.

10 Best SharePoint 2010 Features You’ve Never Used
Your team is competent in the SharePoint basics of adding, editing, and removing content. Maybe someone on your team has even become quite adept at building SharePoint Designer workflows. But most books and articles seem to jump from the basic to the incredibly complex, where you have to be a developer to understand the content, much less utilise it in your SharePoint environment. This session seeks to bridge that gap; demonstrating 10 of the best features that you've likely never used, but should be using.

Building an Online Catalogue with SharePoint 2013
SharePoint 2013 provides a number of enhancements in the areas of content management and keywords and taxonomies. In this session, we will explore how we can create an online catalogue and use term sets to guide your navigation through your content. This technique will allow you to create catalogues or knowledge base within a single site.

SharePoint 2013, the Social Platform We Have Been Waiting For!
We will first position Social in Enterprise, helping you to understand just why Social has been such a significant focus for SharePoint 2013. We will provide you with tips and guidance on how to build a business case, and how to "sell" to upper management. We will then relate this back to the product, providing you with a tour of the new Social Features in SharePoint 2013.

Information Visualisation - What Can I Do with Excel and Visio Services?
Both Excel and Visio services have Javascript interfaces that allow for powerful ways to work with data in SharePoint.
This session will focus on some examples of what can be achieved. It is appropriate for all users, with a little bit of "how-to" for the more advanced.

A Look at SharePoint Foundation 2013
SharePoint Foundation Server is often overlooked; but it provides the core platform and functionality for the full server product, doesn’t require additional licenses and may be good enough for your Intranet or EDRMS platform. You can use SharePoint Foundation to coordinate schedules, organise documents, and participate in discussions through team workspaces, blogs, wikis, and document libraries on the platform that is the underlying infrastructure for SharePoint Server. This session will review the architecture and features of Foundation server, what you don't get, upgrade Path from 2010 and provide a demonstration of some of the capabilities which might surprise you.
