IAM Talking: Scaling SharePoint Deployments… and Surviving




IAM Talking: Scaling SharePoint Deployments... and SurvivingThere is a phenomenon in the content management world called SharePoint, which, like it or not, has really changed the level of awareness of electronic content concerns in businesses today.

While SharePoint has nearly made content management a commonplace term in organizations, it’s not as though SharePoint or any other solution is perfect.

To a certain degree, the Basic Content Services of SharePoint will be “good enough” that many businesses will not run into severe problems any time soon.

However, there are a variety of deficiencies of SharePoint that I hear from time to time – one of which is the Red Herring of almost any discussion, which is “will it scale?” Another, relating to businesses who take uptime, availability, and governance seriously is, can you REALLY manage the content in SharePoint as well as we’d like?

Listen to the podcast interview (below) between Ted Orme, Director European Operations for RepliWeb and Dan Keldsen, Co-founder and Principal of Information Architected discussing the pros and cons of SharePoint from a scalability and governance perspective, and how these concerns are not at all NEW to the content world.

If you are currently using SharePoint – have you experienced problems in rolling-out large-scale sites, or changes to those sites?

If you are using alternatives to SharePoint and are considering SharePoint as a supplement or replacement to existing solutions, such as from OpenText, IBM, EMC/Documentum – do you already have practices and processes in place that can easily be transfered to the SharePoint realm?

Please feel free to contribute your comments, concerns and questions, and together, we can make the most of ANY content management system, regardless of the provider. After all, your business is more likely to be about something else OTHER than running a content management system.

Is your Information Architected to get out of the way of your business, or better yet to fully support your business?

Testimonials/Quotes

“During a week long "Proving Ground" for Information Architecture and Taxonomy, Dan added delightful perspectives from his incredibly diverse knowledge to help illustrate the classic techniques and lighten the rather dry science of IA. In the classes and workshops I learned that formality and formula are a first step and beyond that it is about context and connecting ideas. The Proving Ground experience has helped me in several ECM, information management, and data governance projects. Since the class I’ve followed Dan's blogs and podcasts that prove he is a master at connecting the science to the art, and knows how to get to the heart of managing enterprise content and knowledge.”
