Presentations
Keynote: Compliance and AI in Office 365
With the digital transformation as a major strategic program for many customers, Microsoft is focused on delivering services to customers to make it easier for organizations and individuals in the world to achieve more with personal productivity and compliance tools built into the products. During this keynote, we will focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI) enhancements to allow consumers and end users to discover content and people around them. The other topic of the keynote will focus on the compliance and audit components of Office 365 to get customers ready for regulatory requirements around GDPR or PCI.

Unlock the Secret to Office 365 for Deep Work: The Key is the Microsoft Graph
Office 365 brings exciting new capabilities to enterprise workers. But with its many apps, workers struggle to use these capabilities to concentrate on important topics like customers, products, services, and projects. Instead, they continue to toggle between email, SharePoint, OneDrive, Teams, and other apps looking for information.
In this session you will hear how the new Microsoft Graph can be harnessed to enable focused success. The session will also include a live demo of how the Graph fights distractions at work by letting workers focus on topics, rather than apps.

Is That Low-Fat? How BPM Can Lean Out Your Processes
Don’t just automate your processes – improve them through automation. Business Process Management is not about simply building workflows to automate tasks or create SharePoint forms, it is about better process management, process governance, and process automation. Often, IT departments are caught up in the wave of workflow solutions that automate simple processes or sub-parts of processes, but rarely does a process owner take a holistic view of their process and the tasks which are automatable, and focus on managing, collecting data, and accordingly improving the process. Traditional BPM systems are too complex and too IT-heavy for a process owner to manage, but modern lean BPM solutions focus on the no-code, rapid-deployment solution that empowers business units to achieve true process excellence through automation.

Don't Do IM Without AI
Information management is an ongoing struggle in any organization. There are many stakeholders, and you need to identify organizing principles, integrate search and structure, overcome inconsistent or duplicate taxonomies, meet strict compliance requirements, and make important decisions based on missing or incomplete underlying data.

This presentation explains the vital importance of AI techniques (especially Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing) in achieving great information management. It explains why human involvement is needed to help train the machines. And, it then proposes some possible approaches and techniques to achieve Intelligent Information Management in your organization.
