  • SharePoint is an enterprise platform on which people build business solutions.SharePoint is the Operating System for the Enterprise…
  • You WILL have to change the Platform and install solutionsWhat does your SharePoint deployment look like today?
  • How did it get to look like this?
  • Custom in house or consultant developed solutionsBespoke to business needOften difficult to upgradeSignificant barrier to platform migration/upgrade
  • Vendors have built a wealth of products on SharePointFrom – workflow, learning management systems, social extensionsAdvantage – less cost than custom solution- Vendor takes pain of upgrades (normally?)Disadvantage – you get what it does
  • The power of SharePoint is with the users
  • Extended capabilities provided by tools like SharePoint Designer
  • Anyone tell me all of the “apps” they have deployed in their organisation?Can we do a Poll?Include all types from custom developed, 3rd party installs to end user and power user?How do you know what’s there when you come to upgrade the platform?

  • How do you get it installed?What rights and permission are needed?How easy is it?
  • Upgrades- Who does upgrades well?
  • What users expectNot traditionally what they have got!
  • How we approached with 21ScrumWe wanted it to be like it is on the iPhone
  • Peoples expectations No longer happy to wait for IT Everyone (ok a lot) understands the concept of an App and App Updates
  • Think of this like you would your phone.Hardware – provider core solutions == SharePoint Out of the BoxPhone Provider – add capabilities, features == Farm solutions from ITSandbox – end user installations == Apps from App Store
  • Client Object ModelMay be only a small thing, but the ripples will have far reaching effects
  • The cloudOffice365 and other providers
  • Same code base – multiple delivery approaches to work as the customer needsExample: 21Scrum is provided as SaaS in partnership with -
