NextDocs Announces ShareFEST Europe, Premier SharePoint Conference for Life Sciences

NextDocs, the global leader in Microsoft SharePoint-based compliance solutions for the life sciences industry, announced its inaugural ShareFEST Europe conference, building on the success of the U.S. based ShareFEST conferences.

ShareFEST Europe is the premier Microsoft SharePoint conference for European life sciences companies. The conference will feature two keynote speakers: Bart Bogaerts from Microsoft and Matt Walz from NextDocs. It will be held on October 18, 2012 in Amsterdam at the Hilton Amsterdam.

Bart Bogaerts from Microsoft will headline the conference with a keynote address focusing on Microsoft SharePoint and Office 15. Matt Walz of NextDocs will deliver the second keynote, focused on collaboration and compliance solutions in life sciences. He will explain how to maximize enterprise-wide investments in SharePoint to meet compliance requirements while supporting a global, mobile workforce. Speakers from Microsoft, sanofi-aventis, Rentschler, and IDT Biologika GmbH will also take the stage to discuss the use of SharePoint in life sciences.

ShareFEST Europe attracts speakers and attendees from global pharmaceutical companies, device manufacturers, biotechs, and service providers. Speakers will present case studies and best practices for SharePoint deployments in leading life sciences companies, as well as share successful use cases for how SharePoint can optimize collaboration and compliance. The conference also will give attendees the opportunity to meet with speakers, discuss SharePoint with colleagues, and connect with experts on using technology within complex regulatory environments.

“The success of our U.S. ShareFEST events and the October release of new Microsoft technologies presented us with a great opportunity to bring this dynamic event overseas. It’s the only conference where life sciences professionals can come together to discuss SharePoint and related technologies that address life sciences’ business needs,” says Zikria Syed, Chief Executive Officer of NextDocs. “The ultimate goal is to help make life sciences companies more efficient and successful through the use of Microsoft SharePoint. In a single day, our attendees can discover best practices, identify typical pitfalls and how to avoid them, and maximize the return on their investment in SharePoint.”
