Oporto Global Integration Bootcamp Agenda

09:00 Registration opens and welcome

The integration landscape has definitely evolved to be a hybrid, significant on-premise investment has been accumulated over the years while at the same time cloud computing brought new challenges and new ways of implementing integration. Let’s navigate through the innovations in both worlds and how BizTalk and the cloud currently live together. – Ricardo Torre

11:30 Coffee-break

SharePoint is becoming modern, there are modern sites ready for mobile, a modern framework to develop web parts, but what about embracing modern concepts?

Internet of things will be everywhere in a blink of an eye and probably you are already dealing with it every day without even knowing.

In this session, we will explain how to collect data from sensors, send it to SharePoint and how to display it in a modern dashboard using modern SharePoint sites.

The possibilities are endless, from temperature sensors to access control devices you can have all this data inside your SharePoint Intranet with a modern look and feel. – João Ferreira, BindTuning

12:45 THE SPEAKER NIGHTMARE: Eval Forms & OCR & Logic Apps & Power BI
In this session, I will show and explain a real live demo on how we can easily build a robust solution for process evaluation forms, using an OCR software and easily integrate them with Power BI to present the results in an interactive and beautiful way. But most important: How you can educate your enterprise Developers and IT pros users to easily extend capabilities for power users, who understand their business challenges the best, and allowing them to use their familiar tools like: OCR software to process Evaluation forms and quickly build and deliver Power BI solutions to build Interactive Data dashboards. And at the same time integrate these tools, platforms or systems and a very quick and robust way using integrate feature on Azure, like, Logic Apps, API Apps and Azure Functions. How to start from a simple solution and evolve them enabling new functionalities. – Sandro Pereira, Microsoft Integration MVP
