Johannesburg, South Africa and Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) September 07, 2012
Colligo Networks, the leading provider of Microsoft SharePoint apps for email and document management, today announced its exclusive global sponsorship of Sharing the Point Africa, a community-driven initiative designed to educate users about the potential of the SharePoint platform. The tour, which begins today in Johannesburg, South Africa, is designed to reach the ends of the earth, and find those communities and individuals who feel alone and disconnected from the community.
“Quite simply, Sharing the Point Africa would not be possible without the incredible support from Colligo,” said SharePoint evangelist and Sharing the Point team member, John Anderson. “Colligo is located squarely at the intersection of SharePoint Street and Mobility Lane and, as such, are the perfect partner to help us take our SharePoint message on the road and around the world.”
Other featured speakers on the tour include world-renowned SharePoint evangelists, Joel Oleson, Michael Noel, Paul Swider, Mark Miller, Eric Harlan and Alistair Pugin. Each will provide sessions on real-world SharePoint experiences, lessons learned, best practices and general knowledge to attendees, at events including:
Sep 7, 2012 – Sharing the Point: Johannesburg, South Africa
Sep 8, 2012 – SharePoint Saturday: Cape Town, South Africa
Sep 15, 2012 – SharePoint Saturday: Nairobi, Kenya
Sep 17, 2012 – Sharing the Point: Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Throughout the trip, Sharing the Point team members will use the award-winning Colligo Briefcase app to access and update SharePoint content from their Apple iPads.
“We are extremely proud to support the Sharing the Point Africa team and mission,” said Barry Jinks, Founder and CEO, Colligo Networks. "Colligo is committed to helping enterprises across the globe to maximize the return on their investment in SharePoint. Throughout the tour, the team will be working in environments where Internet connectivity is spotty, so the offline capability of Colligo Briefcase will be essential. This kind of scenario is exactly what we designed Briefcase for: enabling users to manage SharePoint content from anywhere, be it in their office or at the summit of Kilimanjaro.”
The Sharing the Point team will share stories of their African tour at an executive luncheon, hosted by Colligo Networks, at the upcoming Microsoft SharePoint Conference in Las Vegas, Nov 12-15, 2012.
