IT and Business Alignment Forum

UPDATE: Changed Discount Code

International Institute of Research (IIR) recently created a new, combined conference that brings together the best of business and IT strategy (Enterprise Architectures Conference, Business Process Management Conference and Enterprise Web, Portals & Collaborative Technologies Conference).  The new IT and Business Alignment Forum will be held 10 to 13 November at the Red Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.

As a multi-year speaker at the Enterprise Web, Portals and Collaborative Technologies conference, I have had the opportunity to interact with many off the attendees and see, first hand, the value that content has provided.   From social networking in the enterprise, to best practices in portal development, to how to create a real adoption plan for web 2.0 technologies in the enterprise -- the conference has both depth and breadth.  With the addition of content and speakers from the other conferences, the Alignment Forum promises to really bridge the gap between the disciplines and enable better and more productive discussions around creating real solutions in the enterprise.

This year I'll be leading a pre-conference seminar on making SharePoint Work in the Enterprise.  I'll be covering topics like:

  • SharePoint overview
  • SharePoint's strengths and weaknesses
  • How to integrate SharePoint with other enterprise systems
  • Performance and Scalability
  • Overall governance (specific to SharePoint)

If you're interested in attending, you can find more information on the conference web site.  You can also get a discounted registration for the conference by using the following promotion code: SPKRITBIZSS

I look forward to seeing you there!
