Implementing SharePoint 2010
Are you considering upgrading to or implementing SharePoint 2010? Learn from those who have already been down that path and save time, effort and even money!
Microsoft SharePoint has become the defacto corporate collaboration standard and has its capabilities debated frequently in The Forum.
Discussions following the June workshop have highlighted that many Members have SharePoint 2010 on their roadmap, some having implemented it already.
The Forum is lining up case study presentations from Members who have already implemented SharePoint 2010 and will structure discussions to cover important topics around migration, user communication, awareness & training and infrastructure requirements and hosting models. Discussion will inevitably also cover the costs of migration as well as whether to use vendors, external consultants or internal experts during the transitioning phases.
Join this workshop to hear from those who have already travelled the implementation path and discuss ways to over come the obstacles faced before, during and after this process.
Delegates will be able to hear real-world experiences of moving to SharePoint 2010 and how it is being utilised, and understand some of the challenges they may face in their own implementation and what they can do to mitigate them.
Who should attend
- Why move? Justification and expected ROI
- Planning and preparation
- Configuration options
- The installation process
- Migration - tools, differing techniques, data
- Support before, during and after the implementation
At a workshop held in June 2010 Microsoft's technical experts laid out the benefits and some of the challenges with SharePoint 2010. The benefits include SharePoint Web Experience (an updated SharePoint user interface), incorporation of the Office ribbon, in place Web editing, AJAX responsiveness, richer navigation and Office Backstage (where users can access the context around the document including tags, related tagging and people). However the enhancements are more than cosmetic, with many additions and upgrades to the feature set when compared to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007.
