Cogent Makes SharePoint TechFest Presentations Public

On Thursday, May 17, 2012, Cogent Company was Title Sponsor of SharePoint TechFest 2012 at the Irving Convention Center. The theme for this year’s booth was, “Are You Investing in the Past or the Future?” We highlighted solution concepts through demonstrations that ran through the day: business discovery and insights, social business processes, and innovation and idea management.

  • Business Discovery and Insights. Traditional BI solutions delivered the same thing for years: static monitoring reports that addressed only a fixed set of predetermined questions. This solution demonstrated how to satisfy these capabilities and more with SharePoint, Azure, and QlikView.
  • Social Business Processes. Business processes are a part of every organization. Many are ad hoc in nature, vary in scope and complexity, and may be automated, paper-based, or both. Social Business Processes drive effectiveness (making the right decision) and efficiency (doing things right).
  • Innovation and Idea Management. Increasingly, companies are competing based on their ability to effectively innovate. This solution will demonstrate how you can use SharePoint 2007 and 2010 to help with new product development, process improvements, responses to RFPs, and new market innovation and provide you with a vision for how you can use the solution in so many other ways.

In addition, two of Cogent’s consultants were upstairs in the breakout sessions to present some of the latest work and thinking we’ve been doing around SharePoint.
