The Boston Area SharePoint Users Group (BASPUG) was founded to bring together like minds to network and share their experiences, triumphs, and tribulations around Microsoft SharePoint, to provide a community platform for Boston area SharePoint users, administrators, developers, architects, of all experience levels, even brand new to SharePoint, to share their knowledge with the community. We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at the Microsoft New England Research and Development Center in Cambridge, MA.
Joel Oleson will be presenting "Your Yammer Enterprise Social Journey"
So much to think about. In this session we’ll break it down. SharePoint 2013, Yammer and Office 365 product families bring new capabilities for content sharing, finding, organizing, and authoring. They also create new challenges. The move to the cloud and the integration of SharePoint and Yammer—the enterprise social network—have made this release very profound and disruptive to the business. In this session, we’ll dig into planning and strategy for social architectures around both business process and the technologies to help ensure compliance and success. Social enterprise technology is transformative and will lead to more agile business when used correctly but disaster and chaos when not used properly.
Blogger, traveller, and top social media influencer, Joel has built communities all over the world and travelled to over 140 countries since 2008, including keynotes on all continents. Joel is director of technical evangelism at ViewDo Labs, a social analytics platform. He was the first SharePoint administrator ever and spent seven years at Microsoft, including a few years on the SharePoint team. This past year, as a 13-year SharePoint veteran, he was awarded top SharePoint blog and #1 influencer in the community by Forbes study. Joel is co-founder of many community efforts—SPYam Yammer community (4500 members strong) and Sharing The Point (a community building and training group designed to help underserved countries).

ViewDo Labs offers a federated view of what’s happening with Yammer, SharePoint, Chatter, and other ESNs — across the enterprise, and around the world – so companies can increase adoption while lowering the risks of collaboration. Through our technology, we help organizations fuel innovation, better leverage their business data and intellectual property.
Food and beverages will be provided at the meeting free of charge from our meeting sponsor. Food arrives at about 5:45. We generally have pizza (with and without meat), as well a salad, water, and sodas.
We will be handing out raffle tickets at the BASPUG meetings.
