I will be attending and speaking at this year’s SharePoint Conference North America happening May 19 – 23, 2018. This is going to be an amazing #SPC – you will have access to over 100 Microsoft product team members (the ladies and gentlemen who are building SharePoint, OneDrive, etc.), as well as dozens of Microsoft MVPs. Bring your tough questions and build your network at this amazing, unique conference.

Another great SharePoint Saturday is scheduled for St. Louis on January 20th and I’m so happy to be a speaker! I am giving two sessions at #SPSSTL, one on using on-prem data with cloud tools and the second one on using Microsoft Teams!
Join me at the largest SQL event in Middle Tennessee – Nashville SQL Saturday (#SQLSatNash) on January 13th, 2018.
I’m giving a session first thing in the morning – Using Your On-prem Data in a Cloud World. We will be looking at how you can use your data, wherever it is, with Microsoft’s cloud tools. During the session, I will do a live install and take you from the concept, all the way to being able to utilize on-prem SQL data in the cloud.
Can you somehow monitor the Azure Service Bus for requests that are in wait?
What are the feature comparisons of SSRS vs. Power BI? What are the scenarios where you would use one vs. the other?
I will be speaking at SharePoint Fest Chicago this year and I can’t wait to get back to the Windy City!
My presentation, Use Your On-premises Data with PowerApps, Power BI, and Microsoft Flow, is all about how you can use your organization’s data with cloud tools. We will setup a data gateway, connect to on-premises data sources, and discuss how to use that data in Office 365 to create rich business solutions.
I am really looking forward to attending several sessions, including the keynote by Dan Holme [Twitter], Director of Product Marketing (SharePoint & Yammer) Microsoft – Accelerating your digital transformation with SharePoint and Microsoft 365. Dan will be sharing with us which tool to use when” and “where to share” – which should be a really good conversation!
