Spsbe2013 free tools presentation


Published on

Slides for SharePoint Saturday Belgium
SharePoint leans heavily on partner opportunities, we all know that. But that doesn’t mean you have to cough up a lot of dough to get it working properly. In the light of the economical situation and the given metric that IT departments are receiving less money but are required to give more service, this is something that is growing in importance.

In this session we are looking at real-life situations and how free tools and add-ons can make a huge difference in how you work with SharePoint with minimal effort.

This is not a sales session, but a real-life case based session on how to score quick wins in your company.
