I think we can all agree that any technology deployment works best when it is aligned with real business value. This has been demonstrated by the willingness of companies to invest millions in ERP systems, recognizing that although the implementation and configuration of an ERP is a painful process, the outcome of having better inventory, supply chain and financial management is a necessity for running a business. Similarly, business have come to rely on the vast array of desktop software, most notably MS-Office, as genuine productivity tools.
But what about the gulf in the middle, between the enterprise and the desktop? What about department level workflow, document sharing, social networking in the workplace, and automated services for internal employees? Is there genuine business value there? And is SharePoint 2010 really the first “ready for primetime” platform that can deliver on the third leg of an enterprise IT strategy, bridging the gulf between the enterprise and the desktop?
This presentation will explore the alignment between the capabilities of SharePoint 2010 and real business needs for team, department and enterprise –level collaboration, use real world examples of best practices for developing a roadmap for success, and explore the non-technical factors that have the potential to make or break the success of collaboration within your enterprise.
