The Perth SharePoint User Group is proud to present an internationally acclaimed speaker, Christian Buckley, SharePoint MVP and Director of Product Evangelism at Axceler, as he outlines specific SharePoint information architecture planning tips and content governance strategies that can help you with your SharePoint planning, whether your environment is newly deployed or has been in place for some time.
Abstract: SharePoint out of the box is a powerful platform. Unfortunately, many organizations seem to think that governance is also out of the box. It isn't. The result? Site sprawl, unfettered content, and general process lawlessness. This is a fairly common problem, and there are definitely steps you can tackle to quickly get back on track. In this session, we'll discuss several real-world strategies for gaining control over your SharePoint environments, better aligning your SharePoint efforts with organizational goals, and dramatically improving your chances of meeting end user expectations.
About the presenter: Christian has been writing about, speaking on, and breathing collaboration technology and social informatics since 1997. He is a SharePoint MVP, and the Director of Product Evangelism for Boston-based SharePoint ISVAxceler where he helps drive partner and community development. He is also President of the Seattle chapter of the International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners (IAMCP). Christian previously worked at Microsoft on the enterprise hosted SharePoint platform team (now part of Office365), managed an engineering and PM team in advertising operations (AdCenter), and co-founded several startups in his 20+ year career. He sits on the boards of two collaboration-focused 501c3 non-profits, writes regularly for AIIM.org, CMSWire, the Microsoft Partner Network, and maintains a personal blog atBuckleyplanet.com. His latest book Microsoft SharePoint 2010: Creating and Implementing Real-World Projects was released in March 2012, and he can be found tweeting at @buckleyplanet.
