MS SharePoint and Data Management
Discover how your peers are maximising their organisation's use of SharePoint, to drive greater usage and efficiencies.
Since its release, Microsoft's SharePoint has become the de facto corporate collaboration standard and has had its capabilities debated recently in The Corporate IT Forum. As SharePoint touches many different people - with over 100 million licences, SharePoint is arguably the fastest-growing product in Microsoft's history - and has multiple uses across the business, there are many challenges and a number of areas where efficiencies can be achieved.
Forum members have highlighted documents, meta and data management, along with the policies, governance and guidelines issued to the users as some of the areas where efficiencies can be driven. With the complexities of the SharePoint environment today, is simplicity the key to a 'happy ever after' or is a more governed, streamlined and process-driven approach the way to go?
This workshop was attended by 17 delegates representing 15 organisations from a wide cross-section of industries, including financial services, engineering and construction, local government, airlines, food and beverage, travel and leisure, packaging, automobile, transport, recruitment and utilities who discussed the following topics:
- SharePoint strategies
- Managing metadata and managing complexity
- Creating a governance culture
- The need for SharePoint specialists
- The possibilities through WSS developments
- Managing co-existence with Lotus Notes
- Records management
