Managing the SharePoint Disruption
In many organizations, SharePoint is a disruptive technology: It’s no longer business-as-usual for users, for developers, for IT, or for the enterprise. SharePoint shines a spotlight on everything that’s good and bad about your information management policies, business processes, project management, change management, and IT service delivery. SharePoint MVP Dan Holme shares the lessons learned and common themes from thousands of IT professionals, managers, developers, end users and CIOs around the globe. This comprehensive discussion will highlight the business, cultural, and technical impact of SharePoint on an organization, and the steps you can take to plan for and implement SharePoint as a platform that will support a dynamic enterprise. You will take away a framework within which to understand and communicate the role of SharePoint in your organization, a punch list of issues to consider in your architecture and governance design, and an understanding of the technical, cultural and procedural components of a successful SharePoint implementation.
