Credera Sponsors SharePoint TechFest on May 17, 2012

Credera Team

Credera is proud to sponsor SharePoint TechFest 2012 to be held at the Irving Convention Center in Irving, TX on May 17, 2012. This one-day SharePoint conference will feature a major keynote speaker and twenty sessions within eight tracks focusing on SharePoint solutions and services. SharePoint TechFest tracks include:

  • Cloud Overview and Opportunities

  • SharePoint Online

  • Enterprise Content Management (ECM)

  • Sites & Communities (Collaboration & Social Computing)

  • Composites (Workflows)

  • Search

  • Business Intelligence (Insights)

  • Development

One of the featured speakers is Jesus Salazar, a Principal with Credera and member of Microsoft’s SharePoint Development Advisory Council, who will present on Information Architecture: From Small Businesses to Global Enterprises. According to Salazar, one of the top reasons for success or failure in a SharePoint implementation is Information Architecture.  Poor Information Architecture leads to a farm being taken over by weeds and distracting information. Proper Information Architecture leads to users getting what they need, when they need it. Also, sites and enterprise portals are flexible enough for growth and organizational change. Join Salazar as he discusses the proper approach to information architecture, taxonomy, search, navigation, and other related topics.

Salazar has over 11 years of experience delivering enterprise IT solutions for large and medium-sized businesses throughout the United States. Salazar is a Microsoft Certified Professional who held a seat on the Office 14 Developer Advisory Council where he helped shape the features and architecture of the next generation of Microsoft Office and SharePoint.

One of the main attractions of this conference will be the lunch keynote speaker, David Cush, President & CEO with Virgin America. Cush plans to provide insight into how Virgin is using technology to revolutionize the airline industry.
