Chief Technology Officer Jeff Fried to Speak at Sold Out Inaugural Microsoft Conference

BOSTON, Mass. – April 27, 2015– BA Insight has announced that Chief Technology Officer, Jeff Fried will be speaking at the inaugural Microsoft Ignite event scheduled for May 4-8, 2015 in Chicago IL at the McCormick Convention Center.  His session Information Management Strategy with Office 365 in Mind will be held on Monday, May 4 from 3:15pm – 4:30pm CDT.

This session will discuss how effective information management is not just a technology problem – it starts with a strategy that encompasses findability, governance, and information architecture, including a business vision and a pragmatic roadmap.  With the cloud and hybrid driving cultural changes, new possibilities, and new challenges, having an ROI-focused strategy is even more important.

Jeff will cover tried-and-true practices, new tools (such as Delve, Yammer, and Groups), and new patterns (of collaboration, search, and discovery) – sharing his thoughts on how all of this can be factored into an overall plan.  He will also discuss how Office 365 and hybrid environments factor into information management strategies. For more information, watch the short video preview of what will be covered at his upcoming Ignite session.
