SharePoint Seminar Area's to be coverd

A session at Sharepoint 2014 seminar : Implementing Best Practices and tools for effective governance

Thursday 9th October, 2014

8:30am to 5:30pm (EST)


SharePoint is a web-based document management and collaboration tool with robust search capabilities that has become a common feature in the corporate environment. Companies experience varying levels of SharePoint success and user adoption. Many SharePoint implementations fail with little user acceptance after a substantial corporate investment in software and hardware. Often the root cause of failure is because SharePoint is not an IT project, it is a Knowledge Management project with SharePoint as the technology platform for Knowledge Management. This seminar will delve into information taxonomy, findability, demystifying metadata and the death of folders, SharePoint Governance, and strategies for a successful SharePoint rollout.

The seminar explores SharePoint, Knowledge Management and the interplay between both. Seminar sessions will provide analysis and insight into:

SharePoint defined and what it can do for your company.
SharePoint Online vs. SharePoint On-premises
What is Knowledge Management
