Excitement Brewing for Digital Workplace Conference Australia: Driving Sustainable M365 Adoption
Calling all tech enthusiasts! With only three weeks to go, we're counting down the days to the Digital Workplace Conference in Melbourne, Australia, on August 1-4. As proud sponsors of this remarkable gathering, we can't wait to dive into a plethora of topics that will be presented by some of the most prolific Microsoft 365 speakers in the industry. With a lineup this exciting, it's impossible not to feel the buzz!
The Extranet User Manager team is also thrilled to announce our nomination for "The Most Game-Changing Vendor" for the Digital Workplace Awards 2023, which is presented to the exhibitor who showcases a product that demonstrates digital transformation. If you're attending, be sure to check out our 5-minute presentation, where we will be showcasing how EUM's innovative suite provides groundbreaking simplicity to the overwhelming Microsoft 365 product ecosystem.
What We're Looking Forward to at DWC Australia
Having witnessed firsthand the palpable energy around emerging M365 tech in New Zealand, we're certain that the Melbourne event will deliver even more actionable insights. With 30 speaker sessions and two full-day workshops over the course of four days, there is no shortage of variety in topics. Attendees can build a tailored agenda based on three different streams: (1) Transformation, (2) Implementation, and (3) Innovation and Productivity. This allows attendees to stick to the area that interests them most, or get a robust range of insights from a variety of areas.
The Teams Shared Channels Dilemma
The question whether to use Teams shared channels or not is a common dilemma for many organizations. We can't wait to gain clarity on the pros and cons in the session cheekily titled "To use Teams shared channels, or not use shared channels - that is the question". Simplifying external collaboration in Microsoft 365 is a core focus for the EUM team, so we are eager to hear what community members have to say about the tool and ultimately find ways to mitigate its complexities.
Where to Begin with Information Architecture
An effective information architecture should be intuitive and efficient, with an emphasis on the end user experience. With so many organizations leveraging MS Teams for day-to-day collaboration, structuring document repositories (SharePoint, OneDrive, etc.) should start by assessing your Teams environment. Our President, Peter Carson, will be delivering an in-depth but accessible session on "Teams First Information Architecture and Governance". We are excited to share our process management practices and get feedback from attendees on their own information architecture experiences!
What Makes an Effective Intranet?
There are so many awesome SaaS companies out there specializing in SharePoint Intranets - but what defines a great intranet? We're keen to find out in "Intranet best practices for SharePoint Online", which will take a user-centric approach to breaking down effective intranets that help you get the most out of your Microsoft 365 investment.
How will AI Change the Internal Comms Game?
With the ever-expanding possibilities of AI, it's no surprise that it is starting to revolutionize internal communications; we're looking forward to tuning into "Five Ways to Jumpstart Internal Comms with AI and Viva", which will enlighten us on the possibilities. We're excited to discover how AI and Microsoft Viva can transform our internal communication strategies, empowering us to deliver timely and personalized information to our teams.
There are many additional topics we are looking forward to learning about - automation, governance, and fostering an engaging workplace culture to name a few. With such a fantastic array of topics, the Digital Workplace Conference is an event we simply can't miss. It's a unique opportunity to learn from industry-leading experts, discover practical strategies, and network with like-minded professionals. We're thrilled to be part of this experience and can't wait to share the knowledge and inspiration we gain with our organization and clients!Register for DWC Australia
