Tel Aviv Speaker Session

Speaker name: Jason Jacobo  

Speaker Bio: Jason has been at Quadrotech since 2014, moving from the Delivery team to Product Owner for Archive Shuttle. He has been in the industry for decades, in a variety of different roles. Jason would describe himself as an “exploratory tinkerer” and a technical veteran. The main thing that drew him to technology was a passion for solving problems wherever he sees them. 

Title: Office 365 – Your Technical Journey  

Abstract: As your users move to the cloud, a new set of technical considerations and options emerge.   

In this short presentation, we will look at approaches to migration that minimizes user impact whilst taking into account complex issues such as shared calendars and delegated rights and new capabilities such as Teams and Delve. 

We will also consider which of the on-prem tools and integrations you are familiar with require replacing; either they because they no longer work or because a different approach is required. 

In a similar fashion, we will also evaluate which of your operational methods will still be effective and which you will need to change. 

Session date: 23rd January 

Session time: 10.35am 

Johannesburg  Speaker Session

Title: Making it rain: the challenges of cloud management

Abstract: As cloud technologies have become more common, businesses of all sizes have come to depend on them more. The truth is that cloud environments pose unique, and difficult, management challenges because there are so many parts of the ecosystem that you as a customer don’t control. In this session, we’ll look at some of the thorniest issues around cloud management and discuss practical ways to ensure that your Office 365 environment meets your security, performance, data integrity, and availability standards.

Session date: 29th January

Session time: 10:35
