Maximising Value from SharePoint 2010
SharePoint is in place but how do you ensure that it gets used and the Business gets value out of it? Expensive implementations can sometimes fail horribly when there is little buy-in or understanding of exactly what SharePoint can do for the Business and what benefits and efficiencies can be leveraged.
Who should attend
The final agenda is being developed through consultation amongst delegates. Discussion areas include:
- SP2010 features, selection and matching to business needs
- Understanding features, business needs /business case, feature selection (which and why?), what's it replacing, competing platforms
- Planning and undertaking transition
- Launch strategy, business or IT? Training, user engagement. Legacy overlap and / or integration. Project led or top-down? Resources for transition
- Governance, security and information architecture
- User or IT management? What needs to be governed and managed, who owns what, not overdoing regulation. Taxonomy, permission management, change management
- Reaching Business as Usual: IT role resourcing, application, workspace and site creation
- Development issues and skills, maintenance and management resources for IT, controlling mushrooming of sites, allowing user development
