  • How to Make a SharePoint Site Intuitive: The Science of Easy to Use

    by Marcy Kellar

    You don’t have to be a designer to make a SharePoint site easy-to-use. There is a science behind ensuring a user thinks less about how to use a site and more time focusing on what is on the site. These techniques and principles are standard in the regular web design world and can be applied to SharePoint too.

    This session breaks down the science of “easy-to-use” and demonstrate techniques to communicate requirements and what it takes to make your SharePoint site more intuitive to users. It is intended for the non-designer tasked with implementing an easy-to-use and widely adopted SharePoint site and covers:

    • How to articulate and define “easy-to-use” (and how to measure it)
    • Why your users do what they do
    • Fundamentals and best practices in usability
    • How to take advantage of current web conventions and patterns
    • The relationship between “easy-to-use”, psychology and user adoption

  • Using SPMetal for faster SharePoint development

    by Pranav Sharma

    This session will cover the ins and outs of SPMetal, a tool which ships with SharePoint 2010. SPMetal allows developers compile-time access to SharePoint lists and content types. This allows for type-safe access to columns/fields on a SharePoint site. Additionally, developers can write LINQ queries against these lists using SPMetal which speeds up query writing tremendously for developers. We will additionally cover adding support for complex column types (Managed Metadata, Publishing HTML, etc) which aren’t support by SPMetal out of the box. Lastly we will also touch upon performance considerations and other best practices when coding with SPMetal.

  • Worst Practices of SharePoint 2010

    by Scott Hoag and Dan Usher ($dan)

    In a perfect world, SharePoint systems are well planned with defined requirements, stakeholder approval, and methodology approaches. Oh, and unlimited budgets. But the reality of SharePoint implementations is deployments and operations are typically not what might be seen through rose-colored lenses.

    In this session, you will learn what the instructors have seen in terms of worst practices and approaches for getting a system implementation and deployment back on track, as well as methods to fix and optimize operations that may not be addressing your system's current needs. For all of the things that can go wrong with your SharePoint implementation, one of the best things we can do is learn from others. From not accepting that implementing an established information architecture and having an available infrastructure are core tenets of every SharePoint installation to managing SLAs with your end users. Come to this class to hear not only worst practices, but also worst experiences.

  • Law & Order: Content Governance Strategies

    by Christian Buckley

    SharePoint out of the box is a powerful platform. Unfortunately, many organizations seem to think that governance is also out of the box. It isn't. The result? Site sprawl, unfettered content, and general process lawlessness. This is a fairly common problem, and there are definitely steps you can tackle to quickly get back on track. In this session, we'll discuss several real-world strategies for gaining control over your SharePoint environments, better aligning your SharePoint efforts with organizational goals, and dramatically improving your chances of meeting end user expectations.

  • Securing Microsoft Technologies for HITECH Compliance

    by Marie-Michelle Strah

    Both federal and commercial healthcare organizations are faced with unprecedented opportunities to improve operational efficiencies and access to care, including Health 2.0 initiatives, telemedicine, and innovative outreach and collaboration solutions for patients, caregivers and providers. However, the roadmap for interoperability, meaningful use, program integrity and data integrity provides challenges for HIPAA 5010, ICD 10 conversion, and data sharing across DoD, VA and commercial healthcare providers and ACO.

    Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Dynamics CRM can play an important role in managing unstructured and structured data in healthcare organizations but need to be architected and configured to meet the complex demands of connected health frameworks and HITECH security and privacy. The recent launch of Office365 as a HIPAA-compliant infrastructure has also significantly changed the game for cloud and compliance.

    Learn how to plan, architect and provide end to end security for SharePoint, Office365 and CRM solutions in a BYOD healthcare setting using native features of these platforms as well as third party solutions. Case study format.
