  • 15. Why are We Here TodayMeasuring Productivity •  SharePoint reporting is broad, with available data spread across site, site collection, and farm-level roles and requirements. •  For Administrators, timely and accurate reporting can help maintain governance rules and compliance policies, and to help monitor productivity and scalability of the platform.
  • 16. Reporting AreasSharePoint administration reporting can be separated into 5 categories: Permissions •  Troubleshooting why users cannot see the content they should •  Reporting for different types of compliance •  Auditing who has access to sensitive content Usage/Activity •  Finding what content is, or is not, being used •  Planning for future growth •  Understanding hardware requirements Storage •  Monitoring growth for performance reasons •  Understanding hardware requirements •  Reorganizing taxonomy based on Storage needs Audit •  Needing to show who accessed what and when, to adhere to internal or external compliance requirements Performance •  Monitoring page load times to uncover problems •  Planning for increased usage
  • 17. Permissions•  Permissions reporting is critical to your business for a number of reasons, such as –  Auditing –  Maintaining accurate user access records –  Troubleshooting functionality problems that most commonly stem from end users trying to perform a task without having the correct permissions.•  Missing from SharePoint is the ability to perform centralized management and reporting of all permissions•  Gathering the data you need is time consuming, as it is mostly available only at the site level, which makes real-time reporting impossible.•  While functionality in SP2010 has been greatly improved, unfortunately the reporting is still not very robust. Administrators need farm-wide visibility.
  • 18. Usage / Activity•  Usage and activity reporting is a key tracking mechanism for capacity planning, disaster recovery planning, and to help the Administrator better prioritize and manage their environment on a day-to-day basis.•  Activity reports are a great resource for monitoring and measuring user adoption, ensuring the business is getting the most out of their investment.•  Most SharePoint data is at the site level, and is not aggregated.
  • 19. Storage•  Analyzing storage is extremely important for capacity planning, and for understanding the growth and performance requirements of each team within your organization.•  The best practice of monitoring and setting limits on the size of SharePoint sites should be an important part of your governance policies.•  The next step to setting these governance policies is tracking usage and ensuring end users have the storage they require to meet their business needs.
  • 20. Audits•  Audit reporting has become an essential area of focus for many SharePoint administrators as the platform becomes more widely adopted and business critical.•  As part of this expansion, there is the need for stronger governance, which is maintained through both technology and procedural best practices.•  As SharePoint grows within an organization, and as more secure content is housed in SharePoint, auditing can provide administrators with the tools needed to manage the major events and changes happening inside of the environment.
  • 21. Performance•  Most SharePoint performance reporting comes from outside of the platform, either through customer scripts and reporting against the farm, or through third-party monitoring and performance tools.•  Most performance reporting is owned by operations, not the SharePoint Administrator / End User community, however Microsoft and members of the SharePoint partner ecosystem are constantly adding toolkits and solutions to help with this gap.•  Central Administration now has a whole section for monitoring, which includes Health Analyzer, timer jobs, and detailed reporting.
  • 22. Measuring Productivity is Hard•  Everyone  focuses  on  how  to  help  the  customer.•  But  at  the  end  of  the  day,  if  you  dont  understand   what  the  customers  wants/needs  (and  capture   the  right  data  to  measure  their  sa>sfac>on)  you   will  not  be  successful.  •  It’s  the  same  for  your  end  users.      •  The  lesson?     –  Understand  what  they  want  and  need   –  Track  the  metrics,  and     –  Con>nually  op8mize  the  system  (thank  you  Mr.  Deming)
