4 Common Reasons SharePoint Projects Fail

As a consultant I get to work with clients to help them roll out new installations of SharePoint or create new projects on top of existing implementations. I also get called in to help with existing SharePoint implementations that aren't being used. Either people didn't adopt it, the company did not get all their content and business processes created, or they just never rolled out the platform to the end users.

News Bites: Universal Analytics, Anti-Ad Fraud and More

NEWS BITES.jpg

And now, the news. This week, Google released enterprise level Universal Analytics, Apperian released an API, BrandAds targeted video ad fraud and ClickBank unveiled version 3.0.

Plus, there's a new Drupal to Adobe DPS tool, Appboy Academy opens and HTML5-built OX Spreadsheet takes to the cloud.

Technology that Puts the Worker Before the Work

2014-03-April-Razor-Suleman.jpg

Forget all the talk of technologies to enhance the customer experience and measure customer success. None of that is going to work unless employees succeed in their jobs. The right employees.

Just like almost every part of society that's transitioning from the pre-web era to the digital, mobile society we're becoming, human resources (HR) managers are caught in the middle — a fact that became clear today at Achievers' Aspire conference in San Francisco, where speaker after speaker shared lessons learned along the digital highway.

"The rise of the web changed the way we find work," said Razor Suleman, who founded the employee engagement software vendor a dozen years ago. "Who goes to the newspaper to find work anymore?"

Ask Questions Before Taking the Mobile Enterprise Plunge

Not Every Company Should be a Mobile EnterpriseThis is what telecommuting looked like in the 1960s: taking work papers home in a dog-eared briefcase to dumb terminals and 300 baud modems. People have always wanted the freedom to work remotely part of the time, making telecommuting an important part of working culture.  And while the mobile enterprise appears to be the next logical expansion of telecommuting, it is something entirely different.

BYOD: Mixing Work and Play While Minimizing Risk

Just a few years ago, there was a clear divide between employer-owned, work-related devices and user-owned personal devices. But as more and more employees bring their own notebooks, tablets and smartphones for work and for personal purposes, that divide is shrinking and in some cases, shattering.

SharePoint: A 'Formidable Enterprise Collaboration Platform'

2014-02-April-Radicati-Research.jpg

Everyone knows SharePoint has had problems. However, the Radicati Group just released a report that contains words new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella must be more than happy to hear.

According to the Microsoft SharePoint Market Analysis, 2014-2018, edited by Sara Radicati, Microsoft ironed out the wrinkles in the 2013 edition and now offers a powerful enterprise collaboration platform for business users. 

It's unlikely these claims will go unchallenged, particularly in the file sharing and sync space where companies like Dropbox and Box claim to offer easier file sharing and collaboration possibilities than SharePoint does.

Your Playbook for Mobilizing Today's Workforce

Your Playbook for Mobilizing Today’s WorkforceRemember the good old days when you could truly leave work at work? Your desktop computer was the only place you could access work information to do your job, so once you left the office, the work stayed there until you returned the next day.

That was a pleasant 20th century dream which started to dissipate at the turn of the 21st century, when mobile phones continued their rise and began to allow people to check email on the go -- remember BlackBerry? -- so when they were out of the office they could still be “in touch.”

How to Win with SharePoint #AIIM14

social business, Winning With SharePoint: Tips You Need to Know #AIIM14

The challenge was big. Get a company to collaborate better. 

But not just any company. A global human resources consulting firm that had more than 14,000 employees distributed in 1,500 locations across 35 countries.

It was the task of the team at Buildingi and Roberto Yglesias, the consultancy's business technology director.

"In their case, after a large merger they had no real way of collaborating across teams and geographies, and it was done through file shares if it was done at all," said Yglesias, who is speaking on the topic at the AIIM Conference in Orlando tomorrow.

"We architected a SharePoint deployment that allowed them not only to collaborate across all regions effectively and easily but also it automatically implements all required retention policies."

Jahia 7: The Rise of Digital Industrialization

There are few surprises in today’s official release of Jahia 7 — but only because Jahia disclosed most of its features and functionality during JahiaOne, its international user conference in Paris this past February.

While the general release of Jahia 7 is interesting, what is just as interesting for future developments of this open source content management system (CMS) vendor is the development of its vision and strategy around what it calls Digital Industrialization. 

The Drag on Enterprise Mobile Applications: Security and Privacy

What we have today could barely be called enterprise mobile applications.

We have enterprise applications that exist in a mobile form. We even have some mobile applications meant for the enterprise. But what we have very little of is mobile applications that an IT professional would feel comfortable calling enterprise grade. There is a simple reason for this -- lack of viable security and privacy options that meet the needs of a large or even mid-sized enterprise.

Save Your Tears, Intranets Aren't Dying

Save Your Tears, Intranets Aren't DyingExpect nothing new for the intranet this year. No new major innovations, or paradigm shifts, or evolutionary arcs. The intranet will not die, nor will email, nor will any other enterprise technology. Some of the supposed "experts" (who are really just grandstanding) have predicted in recent years the death of the intranet, the death of email, the death of enterprise social media (one self-proclaimed guru even told me recently that wikis are dead). No one is dying, and no one is giving birth to any great innovation.

Nor should you be fooled by old sheep in new clothing with five-dollar handles like “digital workplace” and “enterprise social network.”

Sign Posts to Watch on the Social Enterprise Journey

goldenpath.jpg“It’s the journey, not the destination.”

This well known cliché holds true for enterprise social maturity. In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy and her friends traveled the yellow brick road believing the wizard would fix all their problems. Turns out there was no wizard -- just a man behind the curtain. But they didn't need a wizard, because the answers and abilities to solve the problems lay within. 

When you first embark on your journey to enterprise social business, it's hard enough to define the path, have a concept of the grand vision and take the first few steps to piloting and experimenting within a new world of technology. As the journey matures, the focus turns to finding like-minded people to evangelize and support, understanding detractors and defining the boundaries of the path within your organization.
