Digital work author Paul Miller to speak at European Microsoft SharePoint ConferenceAuthor: Alison Chapman | Date posted: March 18, 2013
18 March 2013, London and New York.
Digital Workplace author Paul Miller will be interviewed about the evolving digital world of work at the SharePoint Conference for Business Users 2013 on 22 March in Amsterdam.
Paul Miller is CEO and Founder of the Digital Workplace Group, which includes the Intranet Benchmarking Forum (IBF) and the Digital Workplace Forum (DWF) and has been at the heart of the work and technology revolution for the last 20 years.
This key SharePoint 2013 event, supported by Microsoft, will close with an in-depth interview by Conference Chairman Jasper Oosterveld on the past, present and future of the digital workplace, and the implications of SharePoint 2013 becoming the digital foundation for work.
During the interview with Paul Miller, author of the book “The Digital Workplace: How Technology is Liberating Work”, Jasper Oosterveld, Co-founder of the SharePoint User Community in the Netherlands, will investigate:
- how the traditional physical workplace is impacted by the current digital workplace
- the impact of SharePoint on the evolving digital workplace
- how technology is liberating work
- key social software trends for organizations
- how to mobilize and manage knowledge in the organization.
The conference is designed to help users share best practice and make the most of their SharePoint platforms, enabling professionals to learn from other user organizations and manage their business processes better.
Asked about the interview, Miller speculates: “Will SharePoint become the virtual backbone of the Digital Workplace? And, if so, is that to be welcomed or feared? I hope we can address these and other vital questions the SharePoint community faces.”
In fact, the impact of SharePoint 2013 on the intranet space is something IBF is already looking into. The IBF research team has recently begun work on a research report, starting with a survey on how organizations plan to implement SharePoint 2013.
