I'll be speaking at Advisor Summit on SharePoint August 27th-31st in Phoenix, AZ. The sessions will be:
- Get your SharePoint Project Started Right - SharePoint projects can be so exciting that they skip over the requirements gathering needed to succeed. In this session you'll learn how to get what you need to have a successful project. You'll learn techniques for clarifying terminology and for getting the most out of prototyping. You'll get real world tips for recovering from bad requirements. Whether your project is already off track, or you're just getting started and are concerned, this session will help you succeed. You'll take away a worksheet to help make sure you get all the important requirements for your SharePoint project. (SMS201)
- Use SharePoint Portal Server Search - Locked away on your file servers, in your ERP systems, and in your custom applications is the collective knowledge of your organization. Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server (SPS) can peer into these repositories to collect all of the knowledge and make it accessible. In this session you'll learn how to enable SPS to search all the information in the organization. You'll learn the details of how SharePoint search works and how to configure it. You'll see how to create advanced search criteria in SPS. If you're struggling with search, come and learn how to get control of it. (SMS204)
- SharePoint Backup and Restore - Critical information goes into SharePoint each day. Recovering that information in the event of a disaster is essential. In this session you'll learn how to back up the information so you can recover it. You'll learn about internal and third-party backup solutions. You'll also learn to create a backup strategy that provides the most recovery options. If you can't afford to loose your data you can't afford to miss this session. You'll take away a solid understanding of your backup options, benefits and weaknesses. (SMS309)
