High Advanced/Expert level: Technology concepts and implementation will be discussed in detail. Assumes fluency with the technology being discussed. Most likely to appeal to practitioners responsible for technology on a day-to-day basis
Medium Intermediate level. Technology concepts and implementation will be discussed, but the focus will be on decision-making and trends around the technology, rather than on the detailed working of the technology itself. Assumes familiarity with technical concepts but not necessarily detailed, hands-on knowledge.
Low Introductory or Business level. Technology concepts and implementation are addressed from a high level if at all, with the focus instead being on markets, industry trends, or leadership strategies in which the technology plays a role. No prior knowledge of the technology is required to understand the discussion.

Team Collaboration tools are taking over, but in many enterprises, users are still relying on older-generation tools like Microsoft Yammer, and don’t have a path yet determined for their migration to the Teams/Slack generation of applications. In this session, a leading industry analyst will provide an overview of the current collaboration market and tools, and discuss the steps you should be taking to migrate users from these older systems to the new generation. She’ll then carry on a conversation with experts who will offer their perspectives. You’ll come away with a clear idea of how to get from where your users are today to where they’re going, with as little disruption to processes and as many quick wins as possible.

* What does the world of legacy collaboration tools look like? How quickly was that market growing before the Teams/Slack generation emerged to challenge it, and what does it look like going forward?
* What are the biggest challenges for migrating away from tools like Yammer to newer platforms?
* What benefits is the migration likely to produce, and how can you capture these in the near-term, so as to keep users and business leaders on board with the migration?
* Is there an argument for keeping some users on legacy tools? What are the vendors telling customers about planning their migration?
