Category: SharePoint

According to Wikipedia, SharePoint is a web-based collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office. Launched in 2001, SharePoint is primarily sold as a document management and storage system, but the product is highly configurable and usage varies substantially between organisations.

Due to the highly configurable nature of SP and the multitude of versions available, we offer a vast collection of classic and moder SP information within this category which covers everything from Enterprise Users of the latest SP Release.

Therefore, this category is broad too, and is full of handy tips, tricks and advise. Check out some of the Step by Step blogs or learn with our eBooks, How To videos and Webinars.

So a few people recommended I post my slides or content from my European SharePoint Conference session. I cover a list of considerations that makes a good reference for people undertaking the design of custom applications on SharePoint.

Usually in projects you would have people responsible for the design of the infrastructure and then a development team would dig into the technical design of the SharePoint application. They will try to answer how different components will be used to satisfy the requirements. Solution Architects explore various options for meeting each requirement and all these options and choices intertwine into a proposed design, maybe a model or a proof of concept, and hopefully a document. Projects that miss this communication are either chaotic, or extremely agile.
