Free webinar series offered with Leadership Through Data

Free webinars with Leadership Through Data

Metataxis is very pleased to be participating in a series of free webinars offered by Leadership Through Data (LTD). Metataxis Technical Director, Marc Stephenson will be talking about Information Architecture at 13:00 on the 4th of November 2021. The session is called Design of Information Architecture within Microsoft 365 & SharePoint where Marc will be discussing one of the most important but sometimes least understood aspects of ensuring a successful Microsoft 365 roll-out.

An information architecture is a crucial initial step to the successful implementation of any information system. You wouldn’t start building a house with an architecture and the same logic applies to building a system. A good information architecture requires that content, technology, people, business requirements, and cultural factors are all considered at the same time. To find out more about this you can book here.

This is just one of a series of exciting free webinars LTD are providing over the coming months. Focusing on topics relating to Microsoft 365 and Information Management, these webinars draw on the broad expertise of the trainers and partners working with LTD. This means that there are some fantastic opportunities to about anything from training methods with LTD Managing Director Jacqueline Stockwell, to hearing about the latest releases from M365 MVP Sara Fennah. A list of some of the webinars are listed below:

Get control of Microsoft 365

From March to June of 2020 reported usage of Microsoft Teams increased by a phenomenal 600-800%. It’s undeniable that the way we work together in Microsoft 365 has rapidly changed in the past 12 months, brings opportunities but also many challenges. But these challenges faced in Microsoft 365 are not particularly new – if anything it has only brought into sharp-focus many of the common issues organisations and users have to deal with in their Microsoft environments.

Here is just a sample of some of considerations many face:

  • Search and discoverability – making sure things are structured so it’s easy to find the information you need
  • SharePoint vs Teams – which one to use when, and how
  • Teams bloat – sudden, uncontrolled proliferation of Teams sites and channels
  • Security and risk in Teams – guests, access and permissions

All of this makes Information Governance of Microsoft 365 even more important than ever before, as you need to consider how to effectively adopt new ways of working into your existing Microsoft 365 environment, and possibly need to remediate information structures that were built as a quick response to fast changing situations.

Metataxis has been working with a number of clients over the past 12 months to help make these sorts of transitions as painless as possible. To find out more about how we can help you, see how we use information governance to get control of Microsoft 365 or contact us directly for a conversion today.

Metataxis now on G-Cloud 12

Metataxis are pleased to announce that public sector organisations can again access our services through the latest G-Cloud 12 framework.

Cloud services, such as O365/SharePoint Online, require careful planning, design and governance to be successful; however all too often this is just seen from a technical perspective rather than one based on the information and the user.

Metataxis can help organisations meet these information management and information architecture challenges that make the difference in being able to support long term adoption and deliver real value.

Metataxis offer a number of services on the G-Cloud:

  • Information Governance & Assurance

  • Content Migration Services
  • GDPR Compliance Services
  • Information Architecture Services
  • Information Discovery Services
