COO, Modern Work Strategist for PAIT Group
Joy AppleCOO, Modern Work Strategist for PAIT Group
Joy Apple is a Microsoft MVP and the Chief of Operations & Technical Delivery for PAIT Group, leading their Modern Work practice. As a seasoned information technologist of over a decade, Joy strives to ensure technology is implemented with a purpose-driven, “human-first” approach. Teaching is one of her passions, and Joy finds personal and professional fulfillment volunteering in the Microsoft Community, speaking and educating others on best practices for success with Microsoft 365.
When Joy isn’t working with her PAIT Group team or speaking as the “Joy of SharePoint,” she can probably be found at a music venue or the newest fun spot in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She makes her home there with her husband, Stewart, and 3 fur-kiddos. If Joy can’t be found at home, then she and Stewart are traveling, and he’s probably telling her to log off Teams.
Operational governance can be seamless and easy with the right approach.
How many collaborative workspaces has your organization created in M365 since deployment? 1,000, 10,000, 0? Between Teams, SharePoint sites, and Groups, leveraging M365 for productive collaboration has never been easier.
However, as your organization continues to increase its activity in M365 how can you protect your investment and implement operational governance into an already released tool? The path to effective governance begins with optimization of your M365 environment, sustaining ongoing management, and effective lifecycle management. When these strategies are utilized correctly, you can empower your users and reduce IT burden, leaving technology to do the work for you.
Join us as we discuss how you can implement operational governance in bite-size chunks without creating another major change management project. Learn how you can get the most out of your M365 environment without limiting business potential.
