​​SharePoint Summit 

SharePoint Summit 

Envision IT is delighted to announce that our President, Peter Carson, has been confirmed to speak at the eighth annual SharePoint Summit, taking place in Toronto from May 26 to 28, 2014.​

Since 2007, SharePoint Summit has grown to become the leading conference and educational platform for discovering and building innovative, fast-deployment business solutions. Designed and developed by a steering committee made up of clients, consultants and SharePoint solutions providers, SharePoint Summit 2014 is a key event for meeting important players in the SharePoint community and learning about their successes – and mistakes. Participants will also have access to carefully selected SharePoint partners who will present the products and services they offer to help you complete your projects.

SharePoint Summit 2014 will include a roster of exceptional speakers and a first-rate group of partners. It will also feature targeted gatherings designed to address companies’ business and technical needs.

​Cloud Business Apps ​Session

Join Peter Carson for his session on Tuesday, May 27 from 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM.

SharePoint 2013 introduced the concept of Apps, but it is really Office 365 that is driving this phenomenon. With good reason Microsoft doesn’t want our full trust code solutions running on  their shared services, and Apps are the answer to that. However building Apps for your enterprise is different than creating simple Apps for sale in the Office Store. Whether you’re ready to move to the cloud, or you want to make sure you leave the door open, this session is for you.

We’ll start with an overview of the different types of Apps, and what you can do with them. We’ll discuss why SharePoint hosted and Auto Hosted Apps take a back seat to Provider Hosted for most enterprise apps, and what that means. Authentication is the biggest challenge for new App developers, and we’ll go over options such as Windows Azure AD, OAuth, or JWT.

Don’t worry if you’re not a developer and don’t know all the acronyms. We’ll also make the session real and go over some actual enterprise Apps we’ve been building for our clients. One is a case management system supporting external users, document and records management, payment gateway, collaboration, and legacy systems. A second we’ll cover is an employee self-service portal for a global medical products and services company.

From the envisioning stage to delivery, we work closely with you to understand your needs and deliver solutions that empower your business.
