My Site is your personal starting point for viewing and contributing to your organization's intranet through the portal site.

Within SharePoint there are four key ways to develop custom SharePoint solutions which vary by the type of developer and the level of complexity of the application being developed.Native SharePoint Functionality (Developer: END USER / Complexity: SIMPLE)For simple applications native SharePoint lists, libraries, Web Parts and workflows can be used. This will satisfy simple requests such as custom lists to manage simple project tasks or store a list of vendors and related phone numbers and basic workflow requests.SharePoint Designer (Developer: POWER USER / Complexity: MEDIUM to COMPLEX)SharePoint Designer has an extensive feature set allowing developers to create fairly complex applications without ever having to open up Visual Studio. Custom forms, views, reports and workflows can be created accessing SharePoint list data or external business data.3. InfoPath (Developer: POWER USER / Complexity: MEDIUM to COMPLEX)InfoPath is a robust form creation and workflow application Microsoft has integrated with SharePoint. InfoPath Form Services can be used to display InfoPath forms for users who do not have InfoPath on the client.4. Visual Studio (Developer: .NET DEVELOPER / Complexity: COMPLEX)Visual Studio will allow users to develop just about any type of custom application that can be integrated by using custom Web Parts.OTHER OPTIONS Excel Services Access Services 3rd Party Web Parts (buy vs. build scenarios)More integration options Embed applications using iframes Access SharePoint data through the SharePoint API
A SharePoint Governance Plan is a guide outlining the planning, administration, maintenance, usage, and support of SharePointimplementations. It identifies lines of ownership for both business and technical teams, defining who is responsible for what areas of the system. Furthermore, it establishes rules for appropriate usage of the SharePoint environments. An effective Governance Plan ensures the system is managed and used in accordance with its designed intent in order to prevent it from becoming an unmanageable system. Creating a SharePoint Governance Plan allows you to look at your current processes and refine them. Strong Governance = Increased User Adoption
