Fin & SharePint...

Session 1 (Mark Stokes);

This session will provide you an introduction to the four main products in Office 365.  We will look at what Office 365 can offer you and your business and also what some of the drawbacks might be.  We aim to cut through the marketing hyperbole and focus on the important issues including security, privacy and reliability.  If you are considering Office 365 as part of your digital information strategy (either fully or as part of a hybrid solution) then this is a session not to be missed.

Session 2 (Marius Constantinescu);

From complete integration of FAST engine, improved ranking & relevance algorithms, a new and improved architecture down to creating effective search user experience or hybrid architectures, SharePoint 2013 makes Enterprise Search a 1st class citizen. Join me in this session to discover top important changes you'll need to be aware of before starting your next SharePoint project around Search with SharePoint 2013.
