Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT), a leading information technology consulting firm serving global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it will exhibit at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2012. The SharePoint Conference, which will be held Nov. 12 – 15, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, is the most comprehensive event for IT professionals dedicated to SharePoint and related technologies.
Microsoft’s SharePoint 2013 platform enables businesses to improve collaborative processes and enhance access to an organization’s knowledge base. As one of only seven Microsoft Worldwide National Systems Integrator (NSI) Partners, Perficient partners with clients to create enterprise SharePoint portal solutions that promote user adoption, increase operational productivity, and drive measurable business value.
“One of the biggest challenges leaders face today is how to share information across channels and collaborate on people-driven business processes. These companies are in search of solutions that provide the tools needed to effectively collaborate with co-workers, clients and partners,” said Aaron Sloman, general manager of Perficient’s Microsoft National Business Group. “The SharePoint 2013 platform plays a key role in bringing people together, making social collaboration, enterprise search and mobile access possible. It has the power to help organizations share knowledge, enhance communication and drive teamwork and innovation. We’re pleased to highlight our experience with SharePoint 2013 at this year’s SharePoint Conference.”
Witness Perficient SharePoint Expertise in Action
During the conference, Microsoft and Perficient client Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) will discuss the work Perficient did to successfully implement SharePoint 2013 for Jones Lang LaSalle’s new website. JLL has used SharePoint as a self-service web content management system since 2008. However, in recent years, JLL has seen growth in the site’s mobile device usage. The company worked in partnership with Microsoft and Perficient to develop and execute on strategies that provide a positive, more-focused mobile experience. Conference attendees can learn more about JLL’s success in redesigning its website utilizing the SharePoint 2013 platform in the sessions:
- Demo Extravaganza: Internet Sites with SharePoint 2013
- How Jones Lang LaSalle Leveraged SharePoint 2013 to Power its Next Generation Public Site
Meet with Perficient Experts
In addition to highlighting its work with Jones Lang LaSalle, Perficient experts will be on hand in Booth #904 to discuss how within one seamless business platform, SharePoint 2013 can support a variety of intranet, extranet, and web applications for an enterprise. Perficient also will offer demos highlighting SharePoint 2013 capabilities around search and social business, as well as Perficient’s SharePoint design experience.
“Social computing played a major role in the design and functionality of SharePoint 2013. Microsoft has recognized that people’s online experiences as consumers are driving the way they want to work day-to-day in a professional environment,” said Rich Wood, senior solution architect, Perficient’s Microsoft National Business Group. “With the SharePoint 2013 platform, organizations allow users to put social to work by sharing ideas, discovering answers and keeping track of colleagues and projects. Knowledge is power, and SharePoint 2013’s newest features like social tagging, communities and micro-blogging are making knowledge sharing easy and effective, and leading to better business performance.”
Through its partnerships with leading technology innovators, Perficient provides clients in all industries business-driven technology solutions and support in a wide range of practice areas. In addition to SharePoint, Perficient’s Microsoft consultants specialize in several practice areas including Unified Communications, Microsoft BI and Microsoft Cloud to provide digital marketing, portals and collaboration, mobile development and customer relationship management solutions to clients.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
