Two hundred and seven exhibitors, 1,407 sessions, and 20,000 attendees will be at Microsoft Ignite 2016 – so how do you avoid getting overwhelmed while making sure you get as much out of the conference as possible? There’s plenty of advice out there for planning your Microsoft Ignite schedule and how to spend your time in Atlanta. We also wanted to make sure you know where to find us during the conference, so we put together this post with a list of what we have going on!

AvePoint at the Expo

Visit our team at booth #1104 to see live demos of our latest solutions and product previews for SharePoint and Office 365 migration, management, and protection.



See how our DocAve High Speed Migration for Office 365 moves content from on-premises SharePoint, file shares, and LiveLink to SharePoint Online up to 10 times faster than conventional methods. If you’re looking to get to the cloud quickly, an AvePoint expert will be happy to help!


New capabilities in AvePoint Online Services automate governance and lifecycle management of Office 365 Groups and users – quickly provisioning and de-provisioning approved services for business users, saving time for administrators, and ensuring organizational policies are met.

We also recently introduced AvePoint Online Services for Partners, for our partners who provide managed services for Office 365 customers. With this addition, partners access a portal to better manage client deployments using AvePoint Online Services.


Take a risk-based approach to protecting your IT systems with DocAve Governance Automation provides with access to a single governance system that allows businesses to easily manage the latest SharePoint versions under a centralized platform.
