Real World Upgrade to SharePoint 2016

Though Office 365 adoption grows rapidly figures from Sharegate show that around half of migrations are still to on-premises farms.

Based on a real upgrade project this session details the challenges, pitfalls and opportunities afforded when upgrading SharePoint to SP2016.

What issues are faced? Can my legacy code be ported? Are migration tools worth the expense? How can I transition my users to the new platform smoothly?

All these topics and more will be explored.

James Larner and Luke Linden

Supply and demand dynamic of the UK SharePoint Market

As a specialist SharePoint recruiter I spend every day speaking with candidates and clients specifically about what is required within the SharePoint market from a skill set perspective but also what projects companies are working on now and in the future. We will be discussing analysis of both the contract and permanent market across the UK, looking at changes, trends, hot requirements, what is going to be required in the future and what specific resource is lacking within the North West region.

With an ever changing market, we will be looking at how best to retain staff and ensure you have your best people on your projects. We have conducted market research across thousands of candidates to assess salary trends as well as how other factors such as Microsoft, the focus on cloud technologies and market stereotypes are having a direct impact on skill sets, day rates and salaries.
