  • MichaelThe first and most critical part of the implementation of SharePoint is actually gathering information about how everyone is going to use the solution. Gather a Governance team and discover each areas pain points or objectives that they have for a successful SharePoint implementation.Understand all of the different areas of SharePoint that will need to be implemented. Where is content currently storedWho owns the contentHow will other want to find that contentHow will different areas in your organization use SharePoint?Will they want to use workflow processes and document managementWill they be heavily dependent on document storage and searchability?Will they use it primarily for team collaboration? Will there be a need for integrating different applications with SharePoint?
  • MichaelWho will need to access the SharePoint implementation?Only internal people (domain users)?External Contractors/Partners?External Domain Users/Employees?How many people do you anticipate that will access the environment?This will point to how your physical farm will need to be constructed and also other security considerations.This will also be good time to figure out what you have to license and how many licenses you will need.Availability and RecoveryDoes your organization have any standard SLA’s that you will have to abide by?Examples would be:SharePoint only needs to be available between 6am and 10pm during the workday.SharePoint needs to be available within 2 hours of a downtime event.SharePoint needs to be recovered to specific point in time.How often will you need to backup your environment?Recovery Point Objective = How often will you be backing up your system? (The more granular the more expensive usually)Recovery Time Objective = How quickly will you be able to recover the system in event of a failure? (The faster the more expensive usually)Will different sites need different recovery objectives or SLAs? One department may only need Document storage with slight interaction with SharePoint on a daily basisAnother department (Accounting/HR) might be crippled if they are not able to access their content within an hour of an event.

  • MichaelThere are really a few different strategies as to what type of site structure you can build.FunctionalGenerally builds out function based areas regardless of department or division. It will usually end up being a wider set of sites than deep.As the business or company changes it is usually easy to adapt.Divisional/DepartmentalThis is how most organizations view their structure.It is completely based on the structure of the company and how the internal hierarchy of the company is formed.This can and usually does get to be a very deep structure that can affect search results and how search sees a piece of contents relevancy.This can be difficult to change as the business or company changes.HybridFor organizations that don’t or can’t fit in one structure or the other generally a middle ground can be found by merging the best of the two concepts.

    • 6. SP 2010 Quick Overview
    • 7. Audience Survey
      What is your primary role in implementing SharePoint 2010?
      Decision Maker, Influencer or Sponsor
      Admin, Architect or Developer
      Analyst or End User
    • 8. Pre-Implementation Tasks
      Create a Governance Team
      Choose people from different areas of the company with a vested interest in project
      Understand and Document your Needs
      Inventory content and content sources
      Evaluate the infrastructure (Hardware, AD, etc.)
      Identify business problems & opportunities
      Outline Line of Business Applications that will integrate with SharePoint
      Create written requirements – don’t “wing it”!
    • 9. Pre-Implementation Planning
      Who will need to access SharePoint
      Will all the users be accessing the servers internally? Externally? Both?
      How many users are you anticipating?
      Availability and Recovery
      What type of SLA’s will you have on downtime?
      How often will you be backing up your SharePoint environment (RPO/RTO)
      Will some sites in your structure have different recovery objectives than others?
      Will you be moving to Office 2010 or using any 3rd party products?
    • 10. Audience Survey
      Where are you on the SharePoint 2010 adoption curve?
      Already using SharePoint 2010
      Will upgrade once the product has been out awhile (e.g. after the first service pack)
      Unsure – need more information
      No near-term plans to upgrade
    • 11. Designing a Site Taxonomy
      Taxonomy: “the practice and science of classification”
      Can refer to sites, content, search, metadata…
      Different hierarchical structures for sites
      Based on business functions
      Usually wide but not deep
      Based on organizational structure
      Usually deeper than Functional
      Combination of Functional and Hybrid
    • 12. Designing a Site Taxonomy
    • 13. Implementation Approach
      Assess internal skills/assets
      IT Pro
      Information Architecture
      Software Development
      Evangelist & Trainer
      Get outside assistance if you need it
      SharePoint 2010 is new and different – use a specialist!
      Use consultants who provide technology transfer
      Look at prior SharePoint implementation experience
      Plan for User Adoption
      Change is hard - create value for End-Users
      Train Administrators, Content Owners & End Users
      Decide what to do with legacy data
      Not everything needs to be in SharePoint
    • 14. Avoiding Pitfalls
      Don’t make it an IT-Driven project
      Involve people from all levels of the organization in planning
      Seek consensus in your planning, not democracy
      Don’t shortcut the planning process!
      Set realistic and measurable goals
      Don’t be afraid to ask for help. New technology isn’t always “Do it Yourself”
      Follow an iterative, milestone-based approach
    • 15. Best Practices
      Create a simple, flexible taxonomy - your needs will change over time
      Recruit business user champions that embrace change
      Make sure your implementation works for all of your committee’s requirements
      Establish a communications plan; SharePoint is about empowering users
      Provide training for everyone - powerful tools are rarely intuitive
