Yes, that's it... BI for the Real World is my title for my session at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference in October. I'm ridiculously excited to be speaking at this event!
I'll be focusing on how to map business requirements to the Microsoft solution stack. We all know (and sometimes don't) all of the available solutions that Microsoft provides but how to utilize them efficiently is another story. I plan to take real world examples of requests from business users, executives and the like and show my session attendees how to leverage the tools they already have.
With the rest of my time I'll be deepening my knowledge of 2007 and filling up my brain with SharePoint 2010 information. If there is any way you can get to this conference I highly suggest you go!
I know however that many companies are still restricting travel budgets and so for those in the greater Los Angeles area there will be SharePoint Unleashed in November. A one day conference with a reasonable price tag this event will highlight some of the most important topics covered in Las Vegas right here in Irvine. I'll be speaking there as well!
This is going to be a busy fall season and I look forward to sharing all the information I gather with all of you!
