The European SharePoint Conference (ESPC), the pre-eminent European SharePoint event, takes place this week. Originally planned for Amsterdam, ESPC, like all other conferences this year, has gone online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event comes on the heels of Microsoft’s announcement to allow a significant portion of its employees to work from home permanently, even after resolution of the COVID-19 crisis. Microsoft, like many other companies, has come to rely upon remote collaboration tools. In Microsoft’s case, the tools it uses are its own, such as Microsoft Teams and Outlook; these are the same tools helping millions of workers in other organizations stay in touch with colleagues and do business with customers, suppliers, and partners. So perhaps it’s not surprising Microsoft took this bold step.
It is prescient that this year’s virtual SharePoint Conference will focus on how best to take advantage of new and exciting capabilities in SharePoint and Teams to be productive in the modern Digital Workplace. This is the new Digital Workplace, which has employees huddled around their kitchen and dining room tables, trying to be productive while dealing with background distractions. And two of the biggest challenges for people working from home are finding information and being self-sufficient with technology.
That’s why harmon.ie is proud to be a Gold sponsor of this year’s ESPC Conference. harmon.ie continues to innovate by delivering solutions that make it easy for knowledge workers to capture, classify, and find important emails and documents within SharePoint and Microsoft Teams. With more people working from home than ever, harmon.ie's solutions are even more important today, since they enable people to be self-sufficient and productive, by making it easy to find and share important emails and documents quickly.
This year is the tenth straight year that hamorn.ie is sponsoring the ESPC Conference. We are excited to participate in this event and are proud to contribute to the SharePoint ecosystem by enabling the many millions of knowledge workers take advantage of their Microsoft tools to get work done. With over 75 million people now using Microsoft Teams, it is more important than ever for remote workers to have access to tools like harmon.ie that enable them to be independent and self-sufficient. And while we will miss the famous ESPC Gala party and talking with folks during the exhibition floor hours, we look forward to the keynotes, the online sessions, and hope to see all our ESPC friends in person at the 2021 Conference.
