Do you recall how fast the mobile phone technology growth swept the world? It seems just yesterday when only a few carried mobile communications technology beginning with the personal digital assistant!

Our mobile technology has completely reshaped how most of us live, communicate, and attain information. The next similar super-wave phenomenon is happening now with the "Internet of Things". With virtually everything connected in our sites, a new paradigm of infrastructure evolves and the savvy Project Manager and DevOps engineers and leaders must understand how to manage the change and leverage the change for benefit.

Introducing NFV, SDN, and VNF terms and they will mean to the PM and DevOps world!

  • NFV – Network Functions Virtualization. How do we enable and deploy advanced connectivity effectively?
  • SDN – Software Defined Networks. What infrastructure base is necessary to enable NFV?
  • VNF – Virtual Network Functions. A few Use Case examples connecting the "Internet of Things"

Join us as we prime the Project Management and DevOps leaders to recognize and capitalize on what is about to sweep the backbone of the internet word. Facilitated by ASPE's Chris Knotts (Director of New Training Development), Richard Jenny, PMP, PM-Agile Practitioner and DevOps Senior Leader will share thoughts to help the audience recognize this major trend and begin stepwise Technical "how to" Project planning.

How to Configure and Use Managed Metadata in SharePoint 2013

Fri, May 22, 2015

12:00 pm EDT  |  11:00 am CDT  |  10:00 am MDT  |  9:00 am PDT


Seminar Description:

In this webinar we will examine SharePoint 2013 Managed Metadata. We will describe the managed metadata service and connections, and provide an example scenario for using them. Managed metadata is a hierarchical collection of centrally managed terms that you can define and then use as attributes for items in SharePoint Server 2013, and when applied contribute to a more efficient and consistent user experience. The managed metadata service application makes it possible to use managed metadata and share content types across site collections and web applications. A managed metadata service publishes a term store and, optionally, content types; a managed metadata connection consumes these.

In this one-hour webinar we will discuss how to:

  • Enable managed metadata in your SharePoint Server 2013 application
  • Learn the difference between managed terms and enterprise keywords
  • Create new managed terms
  • Create enterprise keywords
  • Share managed metadata with content types

This webinar will also discuss the benefits of Managed Metadata:

  • Consistent use of Metadata
  • Improved content discoverability
  • Metadata navigation in list and libraries
  • Increased flexibility

Please join us and learn how you can use the tools in SharePoint 2013 to more effectively manage metadata.

What is the PMI-PBA test really like? Find out from someone who passed it.

Thu, May 28, 2015

12:00 pm EDT  |  11:00 am CDT  |  10:00 am MDT  |  9:00 am PDT


Seminar Description:

The Project Management Institute has created its own certification for Business Analysis – the PMI-PBA (Professional Business Analyst). But unlike the IIBA's CBAP certification, there is no Body of Knowledge to use as a reference. Instead, PMI provided a list of 11 text books from which the test would be developed. So how was the test different from the CBAP? Is it something you can actually study for? What was learned from taking the test, and actually passing it! This seminar provides an overview of the application process and tidbits about what the test was like. If I can pass it, you can too.

Rob Snowden, CBAP, CSM, PMI-PBA

Using Documents Sets to Implement Business Processes in SharePoint 2013

Fri, June 12, 2015

12:00 pm EDT  |  11:00 am CDT  |  10:00 am MDT  |  9:00 am PDT


Seminar Description:

Seminar Description:

Document Sets are a feature of SharePoint that allow an enterprise to manage multiple pieces of content as one single work product. We can think of Document Sets as "Super Folders" because they allow us to group information together, but that is as far as it goes. Folders are something you want to avoid in SharePoint because they have little value in the big scheme of actually managing SharePoint content. Document Sets have some of the same attributes of folders, but come with other object elements that allow us to perform many different management functions. Some of the features of Document Sets are: version management, workflow association, Information Management Policy, and metadata. This webinar will introduce the attendee to Document Sets and will dive in how to create and use them. Document Sets can be used to implement business processes and this goes beyond the normal approach of using them simply as folder replacements.

The topics that will be covered in this one hour webinar:

  • What are Document Sets?
  • How Document Sets can be used to manage work product
  • The components of Document Sets
  • Defining a Document Set
  • Using Document Sets to implement real business processes
