  10. 10. Who is Deeley Canada?• Manufacturer – USA• Importer – Distributor• Independent Retailer
  11. 11. The Challenge – Typical!• Quarterly Business Planning Exercise• Sensitive information for senior management• Secured on a file share• Changes e-mailed in password protected files• Cut and paste to Excel and PowerPoint• “Versions” postfixed with dates / initials• Where is the definitive version?• Where is the latest version?
  12. 12. Solution is SharePoint! – Right?• Team Site thrown up for collaboration• Information dumped into document library• Not much thought or planning to the site• SP is just a glorified web based file share• Little governance of the activity being performed• People still e-mail around and edit docs offline• Site becomes yet another content “ghost town”• Failure!
  13. 13. Information Architecture• Site Collection: A boundary for a site hierarchy, starting with the top level site (root site)• Content Type: A defined schema for your content (think database schema), that includes meta data, documet template, and workflow
  14. 14. Content Type Hub• Defined Site Collection to specify content types• Enterprise wide sharing of SharePoint schema• Other site collections can subscribe to content type hub
  15. 15. Site Collection or Site?• Create a new boundary (site collection) if: – A unique group of collaborators (i.e. Security) – A singular purpose for collaborations – Site Administration and Ownership of content – Large size for content database (or quota)
  16. 16. Governance!• Get Executive sponsorship and participation• Define your document lifecycle and workflow• Define everybody’s role (and security)• Define responsibilities and accountability• Define policies and procedures• Define communications, operations, and support plans• Conduct role specific training
  17. 17. Content Type Hub – How To• Create dedicated site collection with blank site template – define content types – Control publishing of content types• Designate site collection as content type hub in Managed Metadata Service• Timer Jobs Content Type Hub and Content Type Subscriber drive publishing• From Site Collection Admin, one can view “Content type publishing”
  18. 18. Managed Meta Data Service• Content Type Hub is part of the Managed Meta Data Service, and the web application “attached” to it• You can have multiple defined Managed Meta Data Services if you need to partition Content Type Hub and/or certain taxonomies.
