We are a talented community of Houston area individuals that have an interest in SharePoint and associated technologies. As the cloud continues to gain momentum, the focus of H-SPUG will evolve to include technologies such as Office 365, Azure, PowerBI, ADFS, OAuth, along with Hybrid Cloud and other Microsoft solutions. In addition to monthly user group meetings, H-SPUG also hosts the
SharePoint Saturday Houston event. For our December meeting each year, we host a Holiday Party with a "Casino Night" theme.
We meet on the third Wednesday of each month, at the
Microsoft Houston offices, to network, collaborate, and socialize. After our meeting, we continue our social activities to further collaborate and have some fun! Our monthly meetings generally consists of two sessions: (1) General, and (2) Technical. Select the

H-SPUG June 2017 Meeting - Wednesday, June 21th
Transforming paper processes into E-Forms in SharePoint
Presenter: Anjali Sharma
Over the last decade SharePoint has matured and evolved into a primary business application, enablement platform. Conversion of paper based processes into electronic forms in SharePoint has gained a lot of adoption. The available options to automate processes which can be accomplished by an end user and not a developer empowers business users and removes the IT bottle neck.
Come join Anjali as she provides an overview of how different form solutions compare and how these solutions have evolved over time. The session will cover alternatives to traditionally available InfoPath form solutions with focus on PowerApps as the future direction of forms evolution in Office 365. We will also view a demo of an example of a simple SharePoint Form application built on Nintex as well as PowerApps for feature and design comparison.
How to use Windows Azure
Presenter: Troy Mann
An incredible 85% of organizations are either using the cloud or considering it. Usage of Azure has surged to 43% of the market. Unfortunately lack of expertise is a major factor in wasted cloud dollars. In this session you will learn what Azure can do and what it cannot do from the hindsight of real world projects. Before you lift and shift your first application to Azure consider attending this session. If you are already in Azure and feel overwhelmed, learn from the mistakes of others. When used properly Azure will help any organization save a great deal of time and money.
