  • Getting a grip on shadow IT in the age of self-service technology

  • With the increase in cloud computing and easy-to-use file sharing systems in the workplace, it's become increasingly difficult for IT departments to keep track and maintain a secure environment. When staff needs to access or share data quickly, they no longer need to rely on IT to provide the tools to do so. Why would they go through the red tape of IT procurement, provisioning, testing, and security when they can find a solution themselves in a matter of seconds?

    Join John Peluso, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy at AvePoint, as he presents how organisations have decided to call a truce and provide self-service provisioning and management. In this webcast, he will discuss:

    • The dangers of having silos of information that IT and the business are unaware of disconnected from the centralized servers and storage of the data center or even approved cloud services
    • -How all of this information may be absent from aggregated capacity, secured content, usage, and other reporting at higher levels, which can complicate business decisions
    • What an organisation can do to proactively manage any rogue IT by providing self-service to end users
  • Digital First World: Data Sovereignty and Privacy in the Cloud

  • Businesses today operate across more geographic boundaries than ever before and as data travels globally, a company's compliance, risk, and data governance obligations become exponentially more complex. Data moving across public and private clouds also increases breach risk, and compliance regulators can stop projects in their tracks - sometimes with drastic consequences to the business.

    How is information stored and managed in the cloud? A question every company should be asking when dealing with the privacy and security of information stored in the cloud. Join our panel of AvePoint experts, led by Dana Simberkoff, Chief Compliance and Risk Officer, to discuss data sovereignty and privacy in the cloud. With many factors to be taken into consideration, our panel offers tips and advice to help understand the existing or upcoming data protection laws in the EU and ways technology can keep your data safe in the cloud.

  • Setting up for a successful move to Microsoft Office 365 Part two

  • Part two: 3 Steps to a Compliant Migration

    Data inventories are a critical but often overlooked part of any migration. Learn why it's essential to understand your data, ascribe value and risk to your content, and "clean house" before migrating to any new system. We'll look at how data sovereignty regulations can influence migrations to the cloud, how to reduce costs associated with migration of legacy content through defensible destruction, and how to leverage classification to highlight prominent information in your new system.

  • Setting up for a successful move to Microsoft Office 365 Part one

  • Part one: Migrating to the cloud what does a business need to make it successful?

    More CxOs are acknowledging that the cloud saves companies money but with 60% of companies still running on-premises, what does a business need to do to make use of these technologies? What about coexistence with current line of business systems that cannot move to the cloud? This session will explore the various areas that need to be considered for migrating to a public (Microsoft Office 365), Infrastructure as a Service (Microsoft Azure), or hybrid cloud (other cloud providers) solution based on two customer projects. It will help you decide if the cloud is right for you as well as provide a seven point checklist of considerations.

  • Getting the Most Out of Office 365 Social

  • Yammer facilitates every employee to collaborate more, produce faster, and innovate in order to drive business initiatives. One of Microsofts Yammer customers, Engie Energy International will explain how they have successfully rolled out Yammer adoption across the company and what results they have experienced.

    We will conclude the webcast by presenting AvePoint Compliance Guardian a full Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) platform. The demonstration will share how a single tool can both prevent compliance breaches and provide opportunities for increasing visibility of key information across collaboration platforms including Office 365 and Yammer. We will then provide practical steps to ensure that you achieve adoption of these technologies without increasing risk.
