Advanced PowerShell for remote SharePoint administration & inspection
Level: 300
Track: IT Pro, Developer
As SharePoint admins in ever more secure ecosystems, we often aren't granted access to run PowerShell directly against our onprem farm and 365 tenant. Or perhaps you have access to run the commandlets but need to minimize runtime with parallel processing methodologies. Maybe you're tasked to offload automated tasks to Azure Automation, Functions, or Logic Apps. This session teaches advanced tactics for SharePoint discovery and administration through truly remote PowerShell. Topics will cover a broad range of SharePoint connections and script optimization as we examine collections from Search, exploring object attributes via web services, and parallel processing the objects through use of script blocks, jobs, and queues. Finally we will look to Azure encapsulation and integration with your automated pipeline.

Business Process Automation is not Dead!
Level: 100
Track: IT Pro
We've heard it all before - SharePoint solutions are dead. SharePoint Designer is deadish. InfoPath is not far behind. So what does all this mean for your workflow and forms solutions in SharePoint Online or your hybrid environment? Over the past couple of years, Microsoft has released a number of new apps and services that that not only fill the gaps, but provide you with great flexibility.

Join me in this session as I introduce some of these new technologies, including PowerApps, Forms, Flow, LogicApps, Azure Functions, and Azure WebJobs to name a few and discuss the scenarios to best leverage each of them.

Business Process Management & SharePoint – looking beyond workflows.
Level: 100
Track: End-User, Business
Business Processes are the very core of any organization’s operations, and often are the key element that separate an industry leader from a mediocre competitor. Today, many companies have turned their focus on tools like Lean, Six-Sigma, Kanban, TPS, and so on – all with the express goal of process excellence.

And yet, many companies overlook the importance of process management. Instead, they use simple process documentation solutions (like SharePoint) and quick workflow solutions to automate tasks (where workflows have no direct link to the documented process).

Business Process Management is the discipline that combines the importance of process documentation, governance, and change-management, and focuses on process automation over workflows. While traditional BPM was a heavy, complex implementation, Lean-BPM is the new buzzword that focuses on no-code, rapid-deployment process automation solutions that easily integrate with existing systems, including ERP, CRM, and of course, SharePoint. When businesses can leverage SharePoint as part of their BPM strategy, it becomes very easy to achieve real process excellence.

Security in Office 365, Plan, Do, Check, Act, Repeat
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro, End-User
When your information is available in the Cloud, people want to know if their data is safe and secure. Microsoft does already a really good job in making sure that the data in their datacenter is as secure as it can be, but in this session, we will discuss what can YOU do. Securing your data in Office 365 can be done in so many different ways, that sometimes it is easy to get lost in the process. In this session, we are going to cover the different options you have in Office 365 to secure and protect your data and provide you with best practices on how to implement these in your organization. We will use the security score within Office 365 to guide us to implement an Office 365 tenant as securely as possible without compromising collaboration and end-user efficiency.
Stage-Based Workflows: Principles and Practices
Level: 200
Track: Developer, Business
The feature that most justifies Microsoft Flow Plan 2 is Business Process Flows; they're the Flow platform's implementation of stage/state machine logic. SharePoint Designer 2013 supports it, as do offerings by ISVs like WebCon and Nintex. This session will start by explaining how stage-based designs and processes work, move on to why they're often far better than classic sequential processes, and conclude with examples of how to build and run such solutions. It's the most useful workflow "secret" you can possibly learn.
