SUGUK SharePoint User Group Meeting Edinburgh, 2nd June 2011
I am very excited to announce that the next SUGUK meeting in Scotland has now been scheduled at Microsoft, Waverly Gate, Edinburgh. on Thursday 2nd June 2011.
Registration & welcome 5 – 5:30pm
Session 1 5:30 – 6:30
‘SharePoint End User Adoption Solutions’
Speaker : Robb Pratt from Combined Knowledge.
6:30 – 7:00 Pizza and coke
7:00 – 8:00
Paul Henry and Pete Denness of OI Software will be giving an overview and a live demonstration of the nGage suite of collaborative tools and applications for SharePoint 2010. They’ll talk about how they built them leveraging what’s good and new in SharePoint 2010 as a development platform. But they will focus in on the issue of user adoption of SharePoint: how nGage can help you to define it, measure it and drive it. Because they believe that collaborative applications, whatever their potential, deliver little value unless you can sustain high levels of user adoption across an enterprise.
