Nashville, TN (PRWEB) November 7, 2007
SharePoint Solutions, a national leader in Microsoft SharePoint training, consulting and add-on software, will hold the world's only 100% non-technical conference about Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS 2007) and Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) February 4-6, 2008, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.
"The three-day SharePoint Information Worker Conference 2008 is designed specifically for business, web and application professionals who need to stay on the leading edge of MOSS 2007 and WSS business applications," said Jeff Cate, founder and president of SharePoint Solutions.
"If you're not part of your company's IT department but you use SharePoint™ and the Microsoft Office System™ to solve business problems, this conference will provide you with the knowledge you need to work with maximum efficiency. And, if you are in IT, but need a functional and business usage understanding about SharePoint, this conference is an excellent choice as well," he added.
Last year's non-technical conference in Orlando, Florida, drew several hundred attendees from around the world.
For those completely new to SharePoint, a half-day pre-conference "101" workshop will be held Feb. 3 to explain what SharePoint 2007 (MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0) is all about.
SharePoint Information Worker 2008 conferees may choose from more than 30 sessions spanning three tracks and visit exhibits from industry-leading providers of value-added SharePoint add-ons and services. Sessions and tracks include:
