( Matt Wade )
Office 365 & AI geek bringing the digital workplace & chatbots to a team near you
Matt is an engineer-turned IT nerd. You may know him best for the Periodic Table of Office 365 (http://icsh.pt/O365Table). His career began designing mechanical systems for US Navy nuclear reactors. SharePoint 2007 rolled out soon after and he leveraged it to organize design documents, contracts, and drawings dating back decades; for better or worse, a new power user was born. The IT department needed some help, so he led adoption for a few years following, including the user adoption sides of upgrading to SharePoint 2013. Next, he spent a couple years in the US Virgin Islands where he led the organization's migration from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint Online. Today he consults internationally on Office 365 migration and adoption. He's recently found himself neck deep in AI and bots. He's worked in environments ranging from government to private sector; fewer than one hundred users to thousands; strictly secure to eh-good-enough; custom to out-of-the-box; snowed-in to palm tree-laden.
