​Topic: The Modern UX is SharePoint's Future

The game has changed and SharePoint's Modern user experience is here to stay.  Companies using SharePoint Online may have found it frustrating over the past three years as Microsoft has slowly built a completely and dramatically new user interface for SharePoint, and deployed it piecemeal alongside the old Classic user experience.  But today, the Modern UX is complete and ready for business, and it continues to get better and better, offering features and experiences that users of the Classic UX can only dream of.  It's also no longer just for the cloud version of SharePoint, as SharePoint Server 2019 brings the Modern UX to the on-prem world as well.

Classic isn't going anywhere—in the near future, at least—but Modern is here and it's the future, so if your company uses SharePoint, you need to know what the Modern UX is, how it's different from Classic, and what you'll need to do to begin taking advantage of it.  We hope you'll join us as we discuss these and a few related topics.


​Speaker: Brandon Murray

Brandon Murray is a Solutions Architect with Synergy Technical in Richmond, Virginia.  He has worked with SharePoint since the ancient days of MOSS 2007, specializing in using SharePoint as a platform to design and build solutions to business needs.  As a consultant who started in SharePoint Server then transitioned to SharePoint Online, Brandon has had a front-row seat as the tech world experienced a dramatic shift in recent years from the classic on-prem model to what Microsoft has dubbed a "mobile-first, cloud-first" model.  Despite the incredible potential in today's technologies, complexity and challenges remain, and Brandon has used his unique background to help his clients bridge the gap between the business and technology worlds.

Brandon currently lives in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley with his wife, Colleen, and four kids.
