    Multifactor Authentication for SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online

    Over the past year, we have seen an increase in hack attempts and in security breaches from inside and outside the organization. Standard methods of user authentication are no longer enough to protect an organization's data. Multifactor authentication technology can help! See how you can secure access to SharePoint using on-premises and Windows Azure federation services combined with multifactor authentication. Whether on the premises or in the cloud, these powerful tools can create a secure mechanism for your users to access SharePoint.

    Keynote: SharePoint for Legal: The Road Ahead

    The pace of business is accelerating. Disruptive change can be a barrier in the road ahead, or it can be a bumpy reminder of the importance of innovating and evolving the way your organization leverages technology. SharePoint is a constantly evolving platform that is used to share, organize, discover, build and manage business value. SharePoint 2016 is coming, new features and capabilities in Office 365 are being released to meet increased demand from organizations around the world, and we have more options and ways we can implement today than we have ever had in the past. With so much change it’s important to understand how your own organization can better leverage SharePoint in improved ways to maximize the value it provides. Come hear about the challenges organizations are facing today, how the legal industry is using SharePoint, and how we can break through barriers to drive more meaningful results.

    Innovative Workflows and Business Process Automation

    ​A workflow is the series of activities necessary to complete a task. Every office has a multitude of workflows – vacation requests need to be approved, departments need to be notified of new arrivals and departures, expense accounts need to be settled, etc. SharePoint offers a workflow engine to assist in business process automation, but is it powerful enough to tackle every workflow scenario? Our experts will take a closer look at what kinds of workflows SharePoint can handle out of the box and when it makes sense to use third-party utilities.

    Charting the Course: Bringing Office 365 and SharePoint Together in Legal

    Microsoft designed SharePoint and Office to work together, yet most law firms manage them in separate silos. Sweeping changes coming to these products will force us to rethink the way we implement our Office and SharePoint environments, as we need to build bridges to connect them. Hear our panelists clarify how our lawyers currently work and how they wish to work in the future, helping you envision this transformation using Microsoft Office 365 combined with SharePoint. We will walk through the process of gathering requirements, project-planning, technology considerations and development opportunities. Don’t miss this hour packed with practical takeaways, implementation anecdotes, best practices and insights!
