“Defining an Enterprise Collaboration Strategy using Microsoft SharePoint”, speaking at GITEX Dubai on Oct 22nd

I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be representing AvePoint during GITEX Technology Week, taking place October 20-24 at the Dubai World Trade Center. AvePoint will be located at pod 23 as part of the Microsoft booth (stand B7-10, hall 7). During the week, I’m planning to showcase AvePoint’s solutions for cloud and migration as well as its mobile apps for SharePoint productivity.

I’ll also deliver a session on Tuesday, Oct 22nd :

Topic: Defining an Enterprise Collaboration Strategy using Microsoft SharePoint
Date: Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Time: 12:00pm – 12:30pm
Description: SharePoint is a very powerful technology platform of enterprise-level business services that has taken the world by storm. If SharePoint is that powerful, why are there so many failed deployments? Is it lack of training, governance, lack of business involvement, and lack of strategy, vision and talent? Yes and more!  In this session we’ll dig into analyst studies and then explore solutions including a framework that will align to bring maturity to SharePoint deployments. We’ll explore practical solutions such as gathering real world business requirements and designing a SharePoint strategy & roadmap. We’ll also focus on how to align with business needs and discuss real world ways to address the doldrums of lackluster and failed SharePoint deployments.


It’s really very exciting for AvePoint to be a part of GITEX Technology Week, since it’s widely considered to be the premier technology event in the MENASA region. It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to interact with our customers in the region and find out what is working for them, and what AvePoint can do to help them further collaborate with confidence.
