In this session, we will setup a data gateway, connect to on-premises data sources, and discuss how to use that data in Office 365 to create rich business solutions. You will walk-away from this session with the knowledge you need to immediately start using your on-premises data with Office 365.
Express Yourself: Building Expressions with Flow – Fausto Capellan Jr.
Since becoming generally available, Microsoft Flow has become the tool of choice to automate common tasks and business processes across many applications and services, such as Office 365, Salesforce, Dynamics 365 and many more. All these applications and services provide a rich set of triggers and actions, but there are times where business processes need to extend the functionality of these actions. This is all possible by using Expressions. In this session, the audience will learn about Expressions, where they can be used, their limitations, and the functions available. Additionally, the audience will see different Expression examples that range from basic to advanced.

Flow in the Real World: Taking SharePoint, PowerApps and Teams to New Heights! – Paul Culmsee
This session will prove that Flow is not only ready for industrial strength use-cases, but is already being at scale.
In this session, Paul will cover a highly innovative knowledge-management case study in the construction industry. Leveraging the respective strengths of Flow, PowerApps, SharePoint and Microsoft Teams, this solution enables many geographically separate teams to share safety-related insights, news, lessons and key documents while out in the field – all from their phone.
This case study is a great example of how the combination of Microsoft online tools not only produces a compelling solution that is greater than the sum of the parts, but also shows how this can be done much cheaper than the traditional custom development approach.
Flow is the key enabler for this solution and Paul will specifically cover how it was used to bring out the best in PowerApps, SharePoint and Teams.
If you are looking for inspiration from a compelling use-case for your own organization? This session is for you.
