SharePoint: lessons learned by a library

leave a comment »

This paper deals with how a library got used with SharePoint 2007.

Weaknesses:

  • The problem with SP is getting started
  • SP isn’t an “install and go” program“: trainings are required

Strenghts:

  • Nice integration with the Office suite
  • Single sign-on for whatever
  • You push information to grups using permissions
  • Each user automatically gets “MySite”
  • It’s pretty clear that SP can do some cool stuff
  • SP is a lot like a Swiss Army Knife. It can do a ton of different things...”
  • We’ve found that people who love SharePoint also love talking about SharePoint” !!!

Advices:

  • Start small but think big
  • “Plan ahead for unexpected growth”
  • Make sure the infrastructure and organization of your SP instance is extensible and flexible
