Get to know the new Office 365 Security & Compliance center
Level: 200
Track: End-User, Business
What do SharePoint, leakage of information and government agencies have in common? Well, to be honest, not too much. But they did inspire Albert Hoitingh to do a session on the willful destruction of official documents and the Microsoft Office 365 platform.

There has been some upheaval in Dutch politics lately. Documents, records and emails which, according to Dutch law, needed to be available for records management had been willfully deleted or simply could not be found. In some cases, judicial documents had been deleted by unauthorized persons. In other cases, the record management procedures did not provide for a thorough adherence to the Freedom of Information Act. In the end, both the secretary and undersecretary for Justice had to resign. If you have been working with Microsoft technology and more specifically document- and record management, you should find this intriguing. What if Office 365 was used? You might wander about records management, data loss protection, information rights management and cloud first/mobile first scenarios.

Office 365, and most prominently SharePoint and Exchange Online, offers a multitude of options to share and store documents, records and emails. In our cloud first/mobile first world we can use these documents and emails as we see fit. We open them, modify them, forward them to people outside of our organization, and delete them. In the end the organization might end up with Terabytes of digital content, without knowing what’s being stored or what’s leaving the organization. Or retaining too much information, resulting in penalties for over-retention. So how about Office 365? Does it provide us with the tools necessary to protect this data and to prevent situations like in Dutch politics? In this session Albert Hoitingh will guide you through the options Office 365 has to offer. The new Security & Compliance Center, the extensive new logging possibilities but also the SharePoint in-place site-hold option and mobile device management will be covered.

The session will give you answers to questions like:
• What is data loss and possible data loss scenarios?
• What’s new in the Security & Compliance Center?
• What new options have been added?
• What does Office 365 provide for logging?
• What are site holds?
• What does the new Mobile Device Management bring into the mix?

Albert will talk about these aspects and will also demonstrate the relevant functions.

How to manage, control and govern External Sharing for Office 365
Level: 300
Track: IT Pro, Developer
One of the big advantages of SharePoint Online is External Sharing. This allows to collaborate not only with your colleagues, but also invite external parties like customers, suppliers, and partners to work together in a single site. By using External Sharing in Office 365 you eliminate the need to manage external accounts in your directory system. This is a major benefit but also has its challenges! How to setup External Sharing, how to manage your external users, and how to ensure your external users comply with your policy?
After an introduction to the External Sharing capability, I'll take you through the configuration options and do's & don'ts. When we want to increase control and build a detective/preventive solution around External Sharing the Office 365 configuration options are not enough. To maximize control of External Sharing and cover the needs of large enterprises, a custom solution built on top of Office 365 and Azure together with Governance is the answer.
Join me in this session to get insights into this challenging capability of SharePoint Online and learn to control this beast.

Kickstart wirh Azure AD Applications and Microsoft Graph API: concepts, architecture, mechanisms, toolbelt
Level: 300
Track: Developer
Microsoft Graph API, previously known as Office 365 Unified API, is a new way how to access and manage productivity data and logic. It is now a preferred way to develop for Office 365, and more than Office 365. "One endpoint to rule them all" is the official Microsoft's slogan for Microsoft Graph.
Preferred way to deploy the applications which use Microsoft Graph are Azure AD Applications. Azure AD is much more than managing users: it can, and it should be used to manage users, applications and devices. Through this triangle, admins can fine-grain who can access which application and data, on which devices.
This session will guide you through the world of Azure AD and Microsoft Graph. We will deal with the concepts, with authentication and authorization mechanisms, accessing Office 365 data through Graph endpoints and putting it all together in working apps and own APIs. Welcome to the new, beautiful world of modern Office development!
Microsoft PowerApps deep dive
Level: 300
Track: IT Pro, End-User, Business
PowerApps is a game-changer for business apps, as it provides a rapid application development environment for collecting, managing and sharing information for employees. As the service works as part of Office 365 but can leverage custom APIs from Azure, it’s important to understand how PowerApps works, what’s possible and what are the best ways for leveraging PowerApps.
Office 365 Dynamics: CombineeR, dan krijg je Meer
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro, Business
Pragmatische en creatieve invulling van de integratie tussen Dynamics CRM en SharePoint/Office 365.
Op zoek naar meerwaarde door het inzetten van een combinatie van diensten.
In deze sessie worden een aantal voorbeelden behandeld:
1. Gegevens uit CRM synchroniseren naar lijsten in SharePoint om deze voor een breder publiek beschikbaar te stellen.
2. CRM als bron van gegevens voor het aanmaken van sites en externe gebruikers in SharePoint Online.
3. Vullingsgraadrapportage over records uit CRM
Door het activeren van auditing in CRM kun je achterhalen welke mutaties er zijn gedaan, alleen kun je deze data moeilijk ontsluiten in CRM zelf als je er meer mee wilt doen. Door deze data onder te brengen in lijsten in SharePoint Online en daar ook bepaalde “business logic” vast te leggen zou je in combinatie met Power BI een vullingsgraadrapportage kunnen opstellen.

Office 365 Groups Deep Dive
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro, Business
Office 365 Groups are Microsoft’s answer to sharing information and collaborating across ad hoc groups and project teams. In this session we will take a deep dive into some of the more advanced Groups capabilities and into the management and governance aspects of Groups.

First up is Office 365 Planner, which offers people a simple and highly visual way to organize teamwork and which leverages the Office 365 Groups functionality heavily. I’ll show you how Planner works and what scenarios Planner supports in your organization.

Second, we’ll discuss Office 365 Connectors for Groups. Office 365 Connectors are a great way to get useful information and content into your Office 365 Group. Any user can connect their group to services like Trello, Bing News, Twitter, etc., and get notified of the group’s activity in that service. I’ll demonstrate how to use Connectors in your organization.

Last but not least, we’ll talk about manageability of Office 365 Groups. Groups in Office 365 are intended to be created and managed by end users. I’ll show you how to set up some policies and create some quick reports through PowerShell to manage your environment when it comes to Groups.
Scaling SharePoint 2016 Farms with MinRole & Other Tools
Level: 300
Track: IT Pro
MinRole introduced with SharePoint Server 2016 promotes a standardised role based
topology for SharePoint deployments. Whilst this feature can deliver numerous benefits it
also has substantial design constraints and limitations for common on premises
deployments. This session will deep dive into MinRole and associated changes in the
topology aspects of SharePoint Server 2016 and also cover other approaches which can be
used instead of, or in combination with MinRole. Practical deployment guidance rather than
marketing hype is the focus of this session.

Understanding OfficeDev PnP Provisioning Engine
Level: 300
Track: Developer
The so called Feature Framework, CAML and the Sandboxed solutions have many downsides and are not completely supported in Office 365. Full Trust Code WSP solutions are not supported at all in Office 365. Thus, what can we use to provision artifacts and customizations to a SharePoint site?
The OfficeDev PnP (http://aka.ms/OfficeDevPnP) community project provides us the PnP Provisioning Engine, which leverages the Remote Provisioning technique to provision and update artifacts, targeting both SharePoint on-premises and SharePoint Online. The PnP Provisioning Engine provides also the capability to extract artifacts definitions from an already existing site, which can be used as a template.
In this session you will learn what is the PnP Provisioning Engine, how it is architected, and how to use it in your own real-life solutions.
Zombification of the Enterprise. User Adoption and Engagement is broken and how to fix it!
Level: 200
Track: End-User, Business
The world is currently facing a crisis of engagement. This crisis is manifested by low user attention spans, low long-term user adoption of enterprise technology and a disengaged workforce.

The SharePoint and Office 365 world is not exempt from this crisis. Enterprise software is seen as hard to use, not intuitive and “noisy” or distracting. Users get flooded with notifications, messages, and fuzzy work items but there is often no reason for the user to want to engage with these communication bits. More often than not they become distractions rather than motivations to become more productive.

The crisis needs to be tackled as it negatively affects client business productivity as well as the perception of the added value of Enterprise systems. In this session we focus on how we can tackle this crisis and will share elaborate on:

- Common issues in SharePoint / Office 365 Intranets which make user adoption and engagement hard
- The eight core drives of human motivation and how to use them to design for high levels of user adoption and engagement
- Practical examples how to drive user adoption and engagement in SharePoint and Office 365 powered Intranet platforms

The goal of this session is, to give the audience concrete ideas on how to boost end-user adoption and engagement. Additionally the audience receives an in-depth view on human motivation and how we can use human focused design to trigger desired behaviour in the Enterprise System.
