10 Serious Mistakes Companies Make with SharePoint Part 2 (IDM)
There are many challenges to implementing SharePoint, both seen and unseen. As a result there are plenty of pitfalls and traps to fall into, and it is very challenging to pick just 10 mistakes. Poor governance, not having an intranet strategy, or not having an intranet committee are traditional mistakes, but hopefully there is more awareness about these issues now. Marcus Dervin, director of Sydney SharePoint/Office 365 consultancy WebVine. focusses on more specific issues that are often overlooked, but can derail a SharePoint project team’s best intentions.
SharePoint Business Governance Strategy: Human Forces
You can't run a SharePoint project and expect it to be maintenance free. You need to have an organization, both during and after the project. Clarification of Human Forces: When I started thinking of forces I found two parts of the word that interested me: First I was thinking of military forces: a group of humans working together to achieve a common goal.
From the Editors: Open Source SharePoint 2010 Collaboration Savings (SearchContentManagement)
Even as Microsoft prepares to release SharePoint 2013, its latest update (now in beta release) to the popular collaboration platform, organizations continue to adopt the current version as they strive to become more collaborative enterprises. But in many cases, companies need to improve on SharePoint’s built-in capabilities to fully meet their collaboration needs. There’s no lack of SharePoint add-on products available for purchase from independent software vendors -- but what can you do when money is an object?
Project Brooklyn: Extending an Enterprise Network to the Windows Azure Cloud (ZDNet)
It's time for another new Microsoft codename, decoder-ring fans. This week's entry: Project Brooklyn. (Thanks to Chris Woodruff of Deep Fried Bytes podcast fame for the pointer.) Here's the reasoning behind the codename: The same way that the Brooklyn Bridge connects Manhattan and Brooklyn, Project Brooklyn is designed to connect enterprise networks to the cloud, and specifically the Windows Azure cloud. The overarching idea is Brooklyn will allow enterprises to use Azure as their virtual branch office/datacenter in the cloud.
Windows 8 Review, Part 1: The Desktop (Paul Thurrott's SuperSite for Windows)
You've been told that Microsoft has somehow compromised the beloved desktop environment and ruined it with Metro, its new touch-first UI for tablets and other non-traditional devices. You’ve been told that Windows 8 is a lousy upgrade on existing desktop and laptop PCs, and that you should stick with Windows 7 and pray that the next Windows version steps back from some imaginary cliff. Folks, you’ve been lied to.
Microsoft and Nokia Have Blown It (ITWeb)
Microsoft and Nokia are betting big on Windows Phone, each hoping to gain some market share from Samsung and Apple. Although the companies have produced products with promise, they are also making a bizarre series of missteps along the way – a stumbling which may precede a fall, unless they pull themselves together.
First Flash Patch for Windows 8 Coming "Shortly" (Ars Technica)
The version of the Adobe Flash plugin that's bundled with Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 8 is out of date, leaving users susceptible to exploitation. Last week, Microsoft said that it wouldn't be shipping a patch until around October 26th, when the operating system is given its full public release. ZDNet is now reporting that the company has relented, and will be patching sooner than that.

SharePoint: Confessions, Regret, and Dialogue Mapping (EndUserSharePoint)
Retirement has a way of putting things into perspective. When I was working I had to temper what I wrote so as to keep a job. Once I quit I had every intention of writing it out and really ‘sticking’ it to IT because I wanted other users to know they weren’t alone, but the truth is, there were mistakes on both sides.
Everything You Need to Know About SharePoint Social Capabilities (SharePointEduTech)
On Tuesday 14th August I had the great pleasure of hosting a webinar with Richard Harbridge focusing on the social capabilities of SharePoint. This really was a superb session and I have never seen so many thank you messages at the end of a webinar. Below you will find the recording of the session and also the slide deck used.
Confessions of a (Post) SharePoint Architect: Midwives Versus Doctors (CleverWorkarounds)
Bjørn Furuknap you have gone too far this time! There I said it. On behalf of the SharePoint community, I feel that someone needs to speak up about your reprehensible behaviour, so I have taken it upon myself to right the wrongs that you so needlessly inflicted onto the community. You see, Bjørn has gone and written a non-controversial post on the confused role of the SharePoint architect. I am extremely concerned about this abrupt change of behaviour and worry about the example he is setting for the young and impressionable members of the SharePoint community. If Bjørn keeps going down this rational road, then he will make the rest of us look irrational and tip the delicate balance of the SharePoint blogging ecosystem into unknown territory. In other words, we will lose the excuse of “Well, at least I’m not as nuts as Furuknap!”
