COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

As part of ongoing development for Sundown and enabling others to gain an insight into current innovation and what is happening at Sundown, we ventured into public speaking at SharePoint events nationally and more recently on an international scale.

We love to engage regularly in helping to coordinate events. As core contributors to several user groups, we are always available to provide advice and feedback to community members.


SharePoint Saturdays were the first speaker events we did, leading to SharePoint User Group (SPUG UK) at the Manchester and Isle of Man venues. We also speak at SharePoint Saturday events throughout the US and contribute to the Dallas-Ft. Worth SharePoint User Group (DFW SPUG). internationally in Los Colinas Texas at the SharePoint Techfest, and participation in Collab365 Global conference.

We believe in investing in our community and as such, we also work with TEALS in the US & mentor apprentices here in the UK. This not only lets us help to grow young minds, but also opens us up to new and innovative thoughts from people with different backgrounds and no preconceived notions of what projects should look like.


A list of some of the events/organisations we work with regularly:


A variety of topics have been covered at speaking events and are most usually linked to what project Sundown Solutions is currently working on. You can find the details and links for some of these sessions below:

Multi-Tenancy: A Real Life Usage Scenario

As part of the Real World Case Studies string, this session was based on how one NHS CSU (Commissioning Support Unit) overcome the inherent and legacy issues of a disparate organisation by utilising the power of Multi-Tenancy. By show casing how the old legacy infrastructure was transformed into a modern day Multi-Tenancy
platform integrating the new apps model to help the CSU deliver products directly to its GPs at the front line. If you thought Multi-Tenancy was a Microsoft only trinket then this session was designed to show you otherwise.
