AvePoint to Sponsor SharePoint Saturdays Throughout Australia

AvePoint will also lead sessions sharing tips and strategies for SharePoint 2010 migration

Melbourne, Australia — May 19, 2011 — AvePoint, a proven leader in providing infrastructure management software solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced it will sponsor all SharePoint Saturday events in Australia from 21 May to 22 October 2011, underscoring the company’s ongoing commitment to working closely with the SharePoint community in Australia to provide solutions, services, and thought leadership helping unleash SharePoint’s full potential. Taking place in Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne, the one-day events offer a range of technical sessions on Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies, as well as networking opportunities for system administrators, architects, developers, and other IT professionals.

“The SharePoint Saturday events in 2010 were extremely well received throughout Australia, and with the release of SharePoint 2010, these events will only increase in popularity in 2011,”said Garth Luke, Vice President of Sales at AvePoint. “AvePoint’s sponsorship of all the SharePoint Saturdays in Australia this year clearly demonstrates our commitment to provide the solutions and expertise necessary to help organisations realise the platform’s full business potential. SharePoint Saturdays are an ideal venue for AvePoint to provide more information on our infrastructure management tools, share proven best practices, and connect directly with the Australian SharePoint community.”

“AvePoint has been there since we ran our first Australian SharePoint Saturday event in Sydney back in 2009, and their support has helped us grow these events and take them to more cities this year than we have done before,” said Brian Farnhill, national event manager of the SharePoint Saturdays. “I am very happy to have AvePoint as a major sponsor of our events again through 2011, and I know the company will help us continue to ensure they are all great successes.”

Proven Practices for SharePoint 2010 Migration with AvePoint

SharePoint Server 2010 delivers numerous feature enhancements that firmly position SharePoint as the preeminent enterprise content management and development platform for today’s ever-evolving business landscape. Many organisations, however, are still searching for simple and reliable ways to consolidate existing content from various legacy content repositories onto its latest release to fully realise the benefits of SharePoint 2010. At each SharePoint Saturday event, Michael Rain, System Engineering Manager for AvePoint, will discuss some of the recommended migration approaches to more effectively transfer content onto SharePoint 2010, including:

  • Planning considerations for an effective migration strategy, and key pitfalls to avoid

  • Maintaining consistent service levels before and after migration

  • Solutions to optimise the migration of content from disparate data repositories such as Lotus Notes, Microsoft Exchange Public Folders, and Documentum eRoom
