App Modernization​

​Do you have in-house applications that were built a number of years ago? Are they becoming a maintenance nightmare and in need of a refresh?

The goal of app modernization isn't simply to revive old applications - it's a means to reducing operational costs and custom tailoring platforms into flexible and evolutionary IT solutions more closely aligned with business goals. 

Our App Modernization session is lead by Oliver Wirkus, Microsoft MVP and Senior SharePoint Consultant at Softlanding, who will be guiding guests on the how to get their Business Apps ready for Office 365 through modernization.

In this session, we will discuss:

  • Why Enterprise Application Managers and Solutions Architects should think to Modernize 
  • What is App Modernization?
  • Examples of Modernization Approaches (i.e. developing legacy windows form applications into a modern Cloud-hosted mobile application) 
  • The Various Approaches to Modernization
  • Applications that can be Multi-functioned in Azure and Office 365
  • Funding available from Microsoft to get started
  • and more...

Modern Collaboration Tools in Office 365

With the growing number of tools in Office 365, the options are endless for implementing an effective social and collaboration platform. However, the viability and productivity of platforms like Office 365 Groups, Yammer and SharePoint Teams can be hard to measure without seeing it run in full capacity with your everyday life. ​

  • The evolution of the Digital Workplace - what organizations are currently doing, the problems that come from these modes and how to get out of this routine
  • The Various Social Platforms of Office 365—Delve, SharePoint Online, OneDrive, Office 365 Groups, Yammer, SharePoint Team Sites, etc. 
  • How to build social collaboration—explore how Microsoft OneDrive, SharePoint, Yammer, and Skype for Business can help boost your team's productivity by sharing documents and collaborating in real time.
