The International SharePoint Conference in London is such an amazing event! If you haven't had the opportunity to attend this conference yet, you should definitely plan on going to the next one. The Combined Knowledge team really knows how to put on a conference that includes speakers from around the world, unbelievable after hour events, and sessions that always get rave reviews.
In my session I had the privilege of working with John Holliday and Agnes Molnar. Our topic was 'Building a Records Management Solution', with the key word being solution. Many sessions will 'touch' on a specific topic, or focus on a particular theory. However, these sessions walked the attendees through a detailed records management solution. We began with the best practices for making sure your file plans contain the information necessary to support a real-world SharePoint records center deployment, configuration, and implementation. The majority of my presentation was what I enjoy doing the most… DEMO's. I did a full demonstration on the SharePoint farm level record centers components, how to configure the records center, and finally how to route a document to the records center where it would reside during its retention period. We also provided information on how to improve searches on records and automate business processes by creating workflows for these records.
You didn't have to go too far to meet some really great speakers that are experts in the SharePoint field. It was great to see many of my colleagues and make the acquaintance of many new ones. These are the conferences where personal and professional connections are made. I am already looking forward to their next conference, being held April 15-17 of 2013.
