Speaking at the Project Conference

imageI am pleased to confirm that I will be speaking at the forthcoming Project Conference in Anaheim in February 2014. For those of you that haven’t been to a Project Conference, I absolutely recommend you do your best to get to one, the quality of speakers, presentations, networking and all round Project and SharePoint knowledge under one roof is second to none.

Once again I will be representing Nintex, a silver sponsor of the conference and presenting a session entitled:

Implementing your organisational process in SharePoint, Project Server and Office 365 with Nintex

With SharePoint and Project Server 2013, organisations have never before had such a rich platform to manage projects, ranging from lightweight project sites in SharePoint through to Project Server 2013 and even Office 365. Ensuring this platform can be customised to meet your exact process requirements is essential to get the most out of your investment. In this session you will learn how Nintex products can be leveraged to quickly, simply and effectively enhance and augment SharePoint & Project Server 2013 to meet your organisational needs.

I am hard at work building some awesome demos and content to knock your socks off. So please make sure you get along to see how Nintex can help.

It’s not too late to register, so head on over to www.msprojectconference.com  and I hope to see you in Anaheim.

Building advanced Project Server workflows with Nintex Workflow for Project Server

Over the past week or two, Microsoft have been quietly uploading all the sessions from the recent Project Conference held in Phoenix to the Project channel on Microsoft Showcase. This morning the Project team officially announced the availability, so I am pleased to announce that the video of Mark McDermott’s and my session is now available for your viewing pleasure. I encourage you to watch it and let me know if you have any questions.

Finally, the session deck, including notes is available for download at slideshare.net.

Project Conference Session Wrap Up

Today Mark McDermott and myself presented our session on Building advanced Project Server workflows with Nintex Workflow for Project Server. The session covered three main areas where organisations can leverage Nintex workflow within their Project Server environments.

Demand Management – During the session we looked at some of the more advanced scenarios for building demand management workflows, leveraging some of the Nintex out of the box actions such as state machines and flexi tasks. We also looked at using some of the new V2 features including the Query Project Data action that allows the workflow to query the PSI directly from within the workflow.

Event Driven – We introduced the new capability of Event Driven workflows allowing you to attach a Nintex workflow to a Project Server Server Side Event providing a huge array of new integration and extensibility options for your Project Server farm.

Project workspaces –Finally, we showed how workflow could be provided in project workspaces to support a project team with a number of activities including approvals, routing and custom notifications. We also showed how easily workflows could be extended to integrate with cloud based services such as Office 365.

Try it yourself

We wanted to make sure that you could try everything that we showed in the session yourself, so spent some time building up three detailed ‘how to’ guides each covering a different area. Links to these guides as well as further information on Nintex Workflow, Nintex Workflow for Project Server 2010 and how to obtain trial copies are available from http://bit.ly/pc332.

Less than a month until the Project Conference..

imageIt’s been a little quiet on the blog for the last couple of weeks, the reason is that I am head down preparing for my session at the upcoming Project Conference in Phoenix. I am presenting with the Vice President of Sales for Nintex, Mark McDermott on Building Advanced Project Server Workflows with Nintex Workflow for Project Server.

The session will go take you through some of the more advanced concepts with Nintex Workflow and how they can be related in your project server workflows, we will also be touching on some of the new components of version 2.0 of the product and how you can leverage them in your Project Server installation to improve project governance, delivery and accountability. 

For those of you that haven’t registered yet, what are you waiting for? There are over 90 sessions being delivered from a mix of partners, mvp’s, customers and the product team.  Registration is still open and available on the site.

If you are coming, our session is on Wednesday 21st, at 5:15pm, the last session before the party, so what better way to start your night at the Arizona Science Center than an hour of workflow immediately prior? Smile
