This Week: SharePoint as an Enterprise Solution...For What?

SharePoint is in 80% of enterprises today, but not always implemented successfully. This month we provide expert SharePoint guidance and example SharePoint strategies to help you effectively plan and implement Microsoft's platform in your organization.

In the news, we covered a review of Hippo Web CMS, the latest version of Telligent Communities and how Novell is killing the Vibe cloud.

We also took a closer look at key information management topics: business process management and e-Discovery, and checked-out the leading vendors -- Jive and Lithium, to name two -- in Gartner's Social CRM Magic Quadrant.

This month's Tweet Jam takes place on August 17th and will focus on SharePoint in the Enterprise. See details here and please join the discussion on the 17th.

Challenging Collaboration: Using SharePoint as a Collaboration Tool

Although Microsoft sells SharePoint as a collaboration tool, it really isn’t. It is a process and storage tool, and actually does a reasonable job at that. Many of our larger clients have thousands (if not millions) of documents stored in SharePoint. But in terms of supporting collaborative interactions between team members, SharePoint has some bolt-on technology at best.

The 'SharePoint and <insert technology here> ' Strategy

The Law of the Instrument states "...if the only tool you have is a hammer, you treat everything as if it were a nail."

When you examine the content management world's zeitgeist, the tool that has all the buzz is the shiny hammer of SharePoint. Yes, SharePoint, a fascinating "free product" that supports an $8 billion a year -- and growing -- ecosystem. By fully embracing Microsoft enterprise site licenses, IT administrators have used SharePoint to justify stable budgets for IT and doubled down their bets on on-premise software. I admit, there is some appeal in having a single vendor to work with, a single price to pay and being able to physically hug your server, should you so choose. But given the benefits of cloud computing like redundancy, cost savings and speed of deployment, is it worth the trade off? Is SharePoint really the only strategy you need?

Essential SharePoint Sandbox Solutions

The release of SharePoint 2010 introduced a new way to develop and deploy SharePoint customizations called "Sandbox Solutions.” Sandbox solutions encompass both a new deployment model for no-code elements like master pages and page layouts, and a new least-privilege code execution environment.

However, sandbox solutions offer some compelling features for developers and administrators that make them essential knowledge for anyone developing and deploying custom solutions for SharePoint 2010.

SharePoint as a Shared Business Service

Businesses today all want SharePoint from IT departments. Different business units and their many departments and teams all have, at some point, been given the sales pitch on the value of using the technology, and inevitably the IT department is challenged to drive down costs. But just how many implementations does an organization really need? SharePoint was made to be shared. So instead of providing technology to the business, provide them with a service.

SharePoint -- Good at Controlled Access, Bad at Process

Because Ars Logica specializes in helping clients choose or assemble content management products (CMS, DAM, CXM, portals), we often get asked how – and if – SharePoint should be integrated into an overall solution stack. Since no two customer implementations are ever identical, our advice is never exactly the same. But similar themes underpin most of our guidance on SharePoint usage.
