Patching Changes: How to Manage the New Windows 10 and Office Updates

Tuesday, August 15th, 8:00am-9:00am PT
Location: Surf D

Deferred channels, build retirements, and service branches – the world of Microsoft is changing. In this session, we will review how Microsoft has modified its support and upgrade strategy to incorporate the new Feature Updates for Windows 10. After an overview of the branch model and how MS has positioned the various offerings of Windows 10, we will dive into patching strategy and what works best at firms deploying these new upgrades. A discussion of task sequence best practices within SCCM will be followed by specific examples of how firms can leverage this functionality as part of their patching strategy in Windows 10. We will also discuss configuration and deployment of Windows 10 and Office cumulative updates, and what these changes mean for law firms. Lastly, we will demo a proof of concept for managing Windows-as-a-Service within an organization, and how firms can use different collections to streamline deployments.

Meeting Room Session

Improve Project Delivery with PMaaS

Thursday, August 17th, 8:00am-9:00am PT
Location: Surf D

“Do what you do best, and outsource the rest.” -Peter Drucker

This session is a must for anyone struggling with an ever-growing project portfolio that’s crying out for structure, processes, and predictability.

Many law firms have been forced to dissolve their PMOs due to budget cuts. As a result, they rely on their already busy staff to assume the additional responsibilities of project manager and encounter recurring issues and failures on projects.

In this session, we will discuss how a firm with or without an internal PMO can deliver successful projects, on time and on budget. Join experienced project managers Pat Mansuy and Mike Walls to learn how leading firms with proactive goals for a modern legal practice are turning to PMaaS—outsourced project management. This session will cover the following benefits of this new approach:
