Can you complete Microsoft 365 Governance? Challenge accepted!

Matthias Einig and Björn Erkens, Rencore

Cloud governance has to be one of the most challenging concepts to bring into practice successfully. Maintaining a healthy balance between user collaboration and control is pivotal. If permission restrictions are too tough, users lose interest quickly as they cannot work productively. Cloud governance must mirror the modern needs of the business user it seeks to govern. Björn Erkens, Governance Product Owner, and Matthias Einig, Microsoft MVP and CEO at Rencore, will give you the power to master Microsoft 365 governance for both IT and business. They will condense some of the most technical and overwhelming governance practices into a simple, easy-to-implement dynamic governance plan.

Power Platform Governance - make it your platform

Tomislav Karafilov

Create input masks and entire applications, implement and automate processes, simplify and accelerate dialogues with the help of bots, and conjure up splendid reports - all of this and much more is the Power Platform. Whether you drive with low code / no-code approaches, are a user, a citizen developer or pro dev, the tools can be used in a variety of ways. A governance view is important for the use of the Power Platform so that it corresponds to your needs, your requirements and your rules. What is allowed at one company does not have to be allowed at the other company as well. Make the tools your tools and use the possibilities advisedly. In this session, Tomislav shows the various possibilities of governance settings in the Power Platform. Learn what is easy to switch, what can be done via the web interfaces, what options are given via APIs and what you should also look at when looking at governance.
