  11. 11. If collaboration is happening, how?<br />“Teams that have embraced SharePoint are using it to get organized around projects.”<br />“Lots of ways: team sites, blogs, wikis, workflows...”<br />“The greatest example of collaboration is our project sites where the project team and our clients manage the details of their project with us.”<br />“People are requesting collaboration sites and use them to describe processes get approvals and manage requirements and projects.”<br />“Extensive use of wikis; some use of blogs.”<br />

  14. 14. For 60% of Respondents, SharePoint has improved collaboration.<br />
  15. 15. If SharePoint has improved collaboration, how?<br />“Centralized all critical information for dispersed teams. Eliminated email clogging and helped version control on documents.”<br />“Customers are extremely pleased with the portal we have created to collaborate with them on their projects.”<br />“Same information is readily available which prompts conversation vs. confusion.”<br />“As detailed in KMPro Journal, the wikis have helped cross-office matter teams coordinate their discovery and project management efforts; blogs have helped smaller and larger groups stay in touch with each other.”<br />
  16. 16. Perceived effectiveness of the social tools within SharePoint is increasing.<br />2008<br />2009<br />
  17. 17. Is SharePoint facilitating Knowledge Management?<br />17<br />
  18. 18. For 70% of Respondents, SharePoint Facilitates KM<br />
  19. 19. If SP is facilitating KM, how?<br />“Yes, we use it quite extensively in IT to capture all aspects of documentation, troubleshooting, fixes, support calls and annual licensing and maintenance. We are try to expand that to other parts of the organization for capturing intellectual property.”<br />“Custom InfoPath form collects critical client data at given points in relationship.”<br />“Having consultants document how they have set up some functionality so it can be supported, recreated for use elsewhere, etc.”<br />“Document IP creation in knowledge closeouts (use cases).”<br />“Using sharepoint wikis to help knowledge management team; for &quot;substantive&quot; knowledge management in the area of civil procedure (litigation) ; and in a modified form, for a “Corporate Knowledge Tree.””<br />
  20. 20. Is email captured/leveraged within SharePoint?<br />20<br />
  21. 21. For the most part, email is not captured and leveraged.<br />
  22. 22. Which Departments / Teams are benefitting most?<br />
  23. 23. What’s Good for SharePoint<br />What’s Good for IT<br />Stay out-of-box to be stable through upgrades & patches<br />Keep it basic, nothing to support and train<br />What’s Good for Finance<br />!!!<br />What’s Good for Marketing<br />Integrate with line-of-business systems but don’t cost too much<br />Make it beautiful and not at all like SharePoint<br />What’s Good for Executives<br />Lock it down, display dashboards <br />What’s Good for Project Teams<br />What’s Good for End Users<br />Make it simple, allow tagging and rating<br />Which might put you in the middle…<br />Provide self-serve site creation, different owners for different sites<br />
  24. 24. How is Search being used?<br />24<br />
  25. 25. Advanced uses of Search & Future Plans for Search<br />
  26. 26. Only a Quarter of Respondents Monitor Search Usage.<br />
  27. 27. Have Search Customizations been made?<br />27<br />
  28. 28. Less than half have made search customizations.<br />
  29. 29. Is anyone monitoring site usage?<br />29<br />
  30. 30. Less than half monitor site usage.<br />
  31. 31. What Surprises Came With Your Implementation?<br />“We have found that in order to get buy-in and really get non-IT departments using the system you need dedicated SharePoint staff to help build out sites and evangelize the benefits of Sharepoint, which unfortunately we do not have at my company. Our growth has been much more organic and as a result much, much slower.”<br />“The contradiction of people&apos;s expressed need/desire to find content, yet lack of drive to produce and capture it.”<br />“Management thought this would be a project that ended. Did not realize people would crave more and that it would evolve over time.”<br />“Many different kinds of uses of wikis have arisen. One of the more unusual ones was to track and control contacts with a very busy client with whom we have many projects.”<br />
  32. 32. Conclusions<br />SharePoint can have a positive influence on collaboration and knowledge management – “conversation vs. confusion.”<br />For Microsoft-oriented companies, SharePoint is perceived as “inevitable.”<br />Sharepoint’s social computing tools are increasingly used and accepted.<br />Search optimization is not a focus in early phases of SharePoint implementation.<br />Email continues to live in its own world.<br />
