Hear Errin O' Connor, our CEO & Chief SharePoint Architect, deliver two Technical Classes:

Technical Class 206: Bringing Ad Hoc SharePoint Deployments Under Control

The larger the organization or the greater buy-in and user adoption your organization has for SharePoint, the greater the possibility your organization's SharePoint implementation can become decentralized and possibly very "siloed" across different business units and departments. Whether you have 200 users, 5,000 users, or 50,000 users, this becomes a major issue for many different reasons. When you do not have a governance strategy in place to control SharePoint requests such as new sites, ad hoc development of solutions, business units finding an available server and just installing SharePoint Foundation, WSS 3.0, or even SharePoint Server 2010... your organization can become the "wild wild west" of SharePoint. This is something that can be avoided with proper strategies and guidance from the powers to be within your organization and I will discuss my experiences in this from organizations of all sizes as well as from different verticals.

Technical Class 708: SharePoint Foundation 2010: From the Inside Out

From the author of Microsoft Press’s new book on SharePoint Foundation 2010, Errin O’Connor will take you into a deep dive of real-world, in-progress projects from companies of all sizes. Errin will discuss the differences between SharePoint Server 2010 and SharePoint Foundation 2010, and he may leave you surprised to find out how “getting your feet wet” with SharePoint Foundation 2010 prior to upgrading your MOSS deployment to SharePoint Server 2010 may save your organization some serious time and provide you with a true ROI. SharePoint Foundation 2010 is 10 times more powerful than WSS 3.0, and with the BCS, SharePoint Designer, Office 2010, and some other governance and best practices tips thrown in, it will be a major player in the intranet, project-based, and application development platform space for many years to come.
