Be a Collaboration Superhero with Office 365 Groups Governance
Level: 300
Track: IT Pro, Business
Microsoft is helping your team and project collaboration to the next level with Office 365 Groups. An exciting new way to package and deliver key Office 365 services, Groups is quickly becoming an important and helpful tool for all kinds of organizations. Even the much-hyped chat-based workspace Microsoft Teams is built on Office 365 Groups. If your users aren’t setting up Office 365 Groups already, you can be certain they will be soon.

However, the default settings for Office 365 Groups may not align with your governance practices. If you’re not prepared to deal with this, things can quickly get out of hand and potentially lead to content sprawl or even security issues. Fortunately, there are ways administrators can overcome challenges around Office 365 Groups governance, including PowerShell and third-party solutions. In this session, we will look into these options and how to use them to align with recommended best practices.

With these tips and tools, you can build a strong governance plan for your Office 365 groups and enforce it. Become a superhero in your organization who not only improves collaboration, but also protects your company from security concerns.

Key Takeaways:
-    Know capabilities and limitations of Office 365 Groups Governance
-    Knowledge Sharing about Best Practices and Customer Scenarios
-    Get a "playbook" of procedures and PS cmdlets to configure available governance settings

Microsoft Flow and PowerApps for Admins
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro
End of 2016 Microsoft made Flow and PowerApps general available, after being in public preview for more than half a year. With Microsoft Flow it is possible to connect multiple services (both cloud based and on-premises) and build automated workflows based on an information exchange between these services. PowerApps is a service that lets you create business apps in a relatively short period of time (in minutes up to just a couple of days), publish these apps instantly for web and mobile, and share them with team members or even the entire organisation.

For users, this is all wonderful. But what does this mean for administrators? How to handle security and control? How can you support hybrid scenarios? What is happening in the background? What if something doesn’t work?

In this session I will answer all these questions. We’ll talk about the Flow and PowerApps Admin Center where you can control which services are allowed to connect to business data and/or public data, and define environments that Flows and PowerApps are allowed to run in. We’ll also cover hybrid scenarios and how you can connect to on-premises SQL databases and SharePoint farms. And finally I will show you how you can assist your users in troubleshooting when something goes wrong.

Trick or treat Mr. SharePoint - why Your SharePoint security is crucial?
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro
    You have just finished deploying your new shiny SharePoint servers and you hope that everyone will be happy with their collaborative possibilities. The idea of keeping everybody pleased and keep everything “up and running” makes you smile, but are you really sure that all the problems are gone? Maybe there could be a more common scenario when you migrate the old solution to a never SharePoint server. Let’s think about it one more time. If the infrastructure is attacked by the hackers, can they attack “me and my SharePoint”? Am I safe enough? These days, hackers are quite clever and If you think that you are not the target, you are wrong. Even innocent users are in danger no matter what administrators do to be secure. Would you like to know how to strengthen the infrastructure which is the base for SharePoint and learn how to avoid SharePoint security gaps? Join us.
