After a few months this page has about 10,000 hits but the article just a 1,000. So skip this page and Go read the article! (This was just a summary) [Feb 3, 2009]

Paragraph 1: "Successful deployment of SharePoint is no different than any other corporate strategy or project, only the moving pieces change. The goals remain consistency, scalability, and success by whatever measures you choose."

Paragraph 2: contains the collective wisdom of every "Best Practices for Product X" article, presentation and book published to date. 

Paragraph 3: "Now to bring this back to reality. The following sections attempt to provide all of the capabilities required to give good SharePoint.  Many are expanded to list their moving parts or to list the choices for providing the capability. Above all, enjoy."

And the next 95% contains information you can use. Go read it, bookmark it, share it, and love it!



Our next Toronto SharePoint User Group meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 22, 2008.  This month’s speaker Jeffrey Wolff, Technical Director, Infonic, will discuss the benefits of deploying a distributed SharePoint environment, factors to consider when planning your environment, and possible problems distributed organizations faces as they architect an enterprise-wide SharePoint infrastructure. He will also review third-party solutions that can address these problems as well as the pros and cons of each.

Jeffrey Wolff has been in the IT industry for the past 15 years and has spent the last three with Infonic. He mainly works with large enterprises primarily based in the US, such as the US Navy, in designing and implementing global and distributed SharePoint deployments.
