Hello Canberra SharePoint-ers!
This month: A site owner's perspective of SharePoint - Alistair Dally
Alistair will provide some observations from a site owner/designer's perspective of working with SharePoint in Defence over the last five years. He will talk about some of the different SharePoint domains used in Defence, including touching on their governance and support models and their interaction or otherwise with other Defence IT systems, such as the Objective records management system. Other topics to be at least touched on will include building collaborative tools in the browser only, some business cultural aspects of SharePoint use and site user takeup (and management expectations vs reality).
Following over 30 years in the Air Force as a pilot, Alistair kind of fell into a so-called business analyst job in late 2009 supporting a SharePoint deployment and soon found himself having to learn about hands on building and configuring sites to achieve utility for site users, and has been doing pretty much that since. Accordingly, the presentation will not be technical and will focus on using and exploiting SharePoint 2010 on the browser side rather than SharePoint deployment and administration or formal application development on the servers.
