KEYNOTE:
Stay Productive, Collaborative and Secure with Office 365
The workplace is transforming and you need a solution that empowers your organization, handle employees' new expectations for technology at work, while keeping ahead of compliance and security needs.

Naimish Pandya
Technical Architect, Microsoft
10:20 - 11:00

Can Office 365 Help Overcome Information Overload? The Key is the Microsoft Graph
Office 365 brings exciting new capabilities to enterprise workers. But with so many emails and documents (and now Teams conversations), workers struggle to focus on important topics like customers, products, services, and projects. Instead, they continue to toggle between Outlook, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Teams, searching for information.
In this session you will hear how new managed access to Microsoft Graph data can be harnessed to enable focused success. The session includes a live demo of how the Graph can be leveraged to fight distractions at work by letting workers focus on important topics.

  • What are Microsoft Teams? What are Office 365 Groups? How do they work together?
  • What should we use and when? How does Teams fit with Yammer, SharePoint, Skype, OneDrive and other Office 365 solutions?
  • How can IT appropriately manage the lifecycle of Teams and Groups and the vital business data contained within them? What is the appropriate level of governance for my organization?
  • What are the best practices for external sharing and permissions management with Teams?
  • What are the best ways to integrate Teams with cloud records or other content management solutions?
