O365 Information Management vs. Actual People (a case study smackdown)
Location
Microsoft MTC
Date
03/19/2020 6:00 PM EDT
Speaker
Seth Maislin

Drawing from his experiences with (yuck) humans, Seth will identify common challenges and suggest some approaches for succeeding with collaborative content management in O365 (despite its seeming reluctance). Approaching information in a nontechnical way, Seth will talk about the components that make information findable, sharable, and usable, and then address the day-to-day operations needed to keep those components current and thriving. Extra attention will be given to stewardship, that necessarily human approach to ensuring quality and alignment with the business and other users, and to metrics, that necessarily non-human approach to quantifying the current state for communications purposes. And a light bulb joke.

Managing Content Types in the Modern World
Location
Microsoft MTC
Date

Speaker
Marc D Anderson

When the order of the day was huge, pyramid-shaped Site Collections for capabilities like Intranets, managing your Content Types was relatively easy: any Site Columns and Content Types you built in the root site were available throughout the Site Collection. When we needed more enterprise-wide information architecture, we turned to the Content Type Hub. In our new, flatter world, we need to think about information architecture differently while hanging onto the better practices of the past.
