Panelist, Paul Olenick will Co-Present Solving SharePoint Issues with Nicholas Bisciotti
FAST isn’t always fast, and architectural challenges abound. Olenick takes a deep dive into troubleshooting FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint (FS4SP). The session is designed to demystify the platform by breaking it down into its component parts. With that backdrop, Olenick discusses methodologies for troubleshooting and diagnosing issues as well as what tools are available to support this process. Bisciotti focuses on designing intranets, collaboration portals, and business process solutions. He explains how to leverage SharePoint’s native search features in creative ways.

SharePoint Conference, PA 4.5.12 - Arcovis to Present

Posted by jamees.wright on March 20, 2012 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Arcovis will present two sessions at the GR8 SharePoint Conference in Philadelphia on April 5th, titled “Best Practices: Simple Solutions for Creating Powerful Search Experiences” and “Making the Best Search Choices for your Organization".


Best Practices: Simple Solutions for Creating Powerful Search Experiences - Paul Olenick - Arcovis

SharePoint 2010 truly delivers on the promise of Enterprise Search and provides templates for creating excellent, basic, Search Centers. But with just a little effort you can take your search solutions to the next level, delivering even more powerful Search experiences to your users.

During this session, Arcovis, one of Microsoft's premier SharePoint and Enterprise Search partners, will walk you through several solutions that address common scenarios and challenges that your organization will likely encounter when deploying search. All of the solutions are simple, light-weight and low-risk even while providing a high impact to users. Attendees will leave with simple, applicable, real-world examples of solutions to make the most of Search in their organizations.


Making the Best Search Choices for your Organization – Natalya Voskresenskaya –Arcovis, Harry Jones - Arcovis

There is an increasing demand for IT to deliver better search capabilities. As users evolve with technology, they rightfully expect a greater experience from search than simply finding a document. Consequently, organizations that still view search as merely a search box and a list of results, are in real danger of losing competitive edge and potential streams of valuable revenue.


During this session, Arcovis, one of Microsoft's top search partners, will arm attendees with the tools needed to navigate the various decision points in both selecting and applying their Enterprise Search platform. Topics will cover choosing the right platform (SharePoint vs. FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint), examples for monetizing Search, using search to drive operational and business intelligence, Search as a service and more.









We are in a period of great business and social transformation. While Borders bookstores were dying, Amazon went from selling books to selling everything under the sun. How can two competing companies achieve such diverse results during a recession? While airlines were losing money and going out of business, Southwest Airlines said it would not affect their business because they are in the “customer service” industry and that industry is doing GR8.


The common threads between these successful companies are business agility, a culture of transformation, and the ability to take advantage of emerging markets. On April 5th, Philadelphia will be the host city for one of the largest conferences dedicated to business and social transformation.


Please invite your social and business transformation leaders and the IT staff that will be responsible for designing and managing the IT solutions that will support your People, Processes and Projects.


GR8 identifies the most relevant IT / business topics and then selects the most knowledgeable and experienced local, national and global Microsoft Partners to educate you and your staff on this topic.


GR8 SharePoint Conferences are unique from the perspective that none of the selected presenters are presales representatives from a 3rd party product company but rather proven consultants that have real-world experiences working with many SharePoint vendors and solutions. Each partner has been carefully chosen because of their vast experience and success at assisting customers achieve their business goals through the planning, design, deployment and management of the topic they are presenting.


GR8 conference presentations and session tracks are designed and delivered to meet the specific needs of your entire staff: Executives, Project Managers, IT Professionals and Developers.
