Title: Notes from the field. Migration to SharePoint 2013. The good, the bad and the late nights
Overview: Having decided to use the Christmas holidays as an opportunity to thrust itgroove onto SharePoint 2013, decisions and actions were fast and furious. Sean will discuss the overall plan, logical and physical changes and decisions made, discuss the risks and changes and techniques used to finish the migration and leave SharePoint 2010 behind. If time remains, we'll also go on a tour of the new GO portal at itgroove and show you some nifty PowerPivot, the Orb and other things that make us tick.
